ACC movement in Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll

·2 min read

We head into tournament season as the ACC Tournament as well as the conference tournaments of every other major conference take place this week.

Notre Dame closed the year with a blowout victory over Pitt this past Saturday and the nation watched as North Carolina spoiled Mike Krzyzewski’s going away party at Cameron Indoor Stadium. How did those results impact how the ACC sits in the polls as we enter the conference tournaments?

Duke dropped five spots and hurt their hopes of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament while North Carolina and Notre Dame are both knocking on the door of finally joining the top 25.
