Barnes is fifth in assists (4.29) and seventh in steals (1.53). INSIDE THE NUMBERS Georgia Tech (14-8, 10-6) has won five straight and clinched a winning record in ACC play in consecutive years for the first time since 1989 and 1990. North Carolina State (13-9, 9-8) stretched its winning streak to five with an 80-69 victory against Notre Dame on Wednesday night.
The ACC Tournament seeding picture became clearer after Wednesday's slate of men's basketball games, but Louisville's place in the bracket comes down to Saturday's regular-season finale against No. Virginia. The Cardinals enter the 4 p.m.
If there were any questions about how comfortable Louisville's Jae'Lyn Withers could be at power forward, Malik Williams' brief return to center provided answers. Withers played more of the four, his natural position, in parts of the last three games and reaped the benefits of mobility versus the back-to-the-basket duties inherent to a center. The 6-foot-8 forward reinforced his outside shooting skills by burying three 3-pointers combined in wins over Notre Dame and Duke.
