Virginia Tech:

All the uncertainty for the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team vanished Saturday night in the ACC tournament championship game.

The seventh-seeded Hokies, who entered the week unsure about making the NCAA tournament, stunned No. 1 seed Duke, 82-67, to guarantee themselves a spot thanks to a transcendent performance from Hunter Cattoor.

Kew Aluma added 19 points, including a layoff with 2:11 for a 78-64 lead, all but one that sealed the result.

From there you can add members to your pool, create your own special group name and, of course, fill out your bracket online in an easy-to-manage format.

It put Virginia Tech fans on their feet at the Barclays Center as Kattur, named the tournament’s most outstanding player, raised both hands and urged the crowd to join in the celebration.

Challenge:

The Kansas selections entered Sunday with 12 Quadrant 1 wins, the most of any team in college basketball.

The Big 12 tournament champion Jayhawks claimed a 20–6 record in the top two quadrants, three combined victories over Baylor and Texas Tech, and only one loss against a team that was not assured of making the NCAA Tournament.

With four wins in four nights, Virginia Tech went on to become the first No. 7 seed to win an ACC tournament.
