Does a 20-11 Season Record get us in?
NEed a win or two as well in the ACC tourney? What say you?

I think that what you propose gets us in BUT I’m expecting a win against the baby blues . Please Tigers. I have to live with these ‘people’!

i'd love it...and i do too.

I just know how we tend to play against UNC the past 10 years. Very susceptible to the runs and not getting in their face. The last time i felt good about playing UNC/Duke was when Trevor Booker, Mays, and those guys were around. They weren't intimidated by those teams and went right at them.

This comfortably gets us in.

Finishing 20-11 overall, and 10-8 in the ACC, should be more than enough to get us in without having to worry about winning a game or two in the ACC Tournament. Last year, we finished 11-7 in conference and finished tied for third in the ACC, and got a 5 seed. Although we probably won't have quite as many "quality wins" this year as last, we won't have any "bad losses" either. I realize that seeding isn't based on a magic number of wins, and is also dependent upon the other teams in the field, but I expect a seed in the 5-7 range with that record.

Let's also not forget that we would be one of the hottest teams in the nation. After starting 1-5, we would be 9-3 in our last 12 ACC games. No way the committee keeps us out, especially with what will surely be a NET in the mid-30s at worst.

Do you think 20-11 is achievable?

Or are we closer to 19 or 18 win team in your opinion?

I was kinda shooting the moon with 20 wins but who knows if this team can even do that. We've been hitting from the outside pretty well so maybe we can hang with all these teams. But if we get cold in any of these games then it tends to linger for a couple. We haven't really been a cold shooting team too often this year so maybe we can stay consistent and stay out of foul trouble. Eli has really improved that over these past handfull of games.
