The Florida State Seminoles and Virginia Cavaliers are playing live on the ACC tournament conference quarterfinals schedule on Wednesday and the matchup is on ESPN and streaming from the WatchESPN website online from Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina has FSU taking on the number three team in the nation and the Cavs should get past the team easily, as they are one of the top teams in the nation.
The Cavs come in after a close loss to end the season on the road against Louisville and they will next play against FSU before hopefully moving to the next round of the tournament. The team has a good chance to win the ACC and this conference tournament will be tough, as UNC and Duke also look very good along with Louisville.
The ACC has some strong teams this year and Virginia comes in ranked third after winning 28 games and losing just two this season. The two losses came in ACC play, but the team finished at 16-2 on the season and ended up first in the ACC over Duke. The team has Malcolm Brogdon coming in after putting in 17 points against the Cardinals and he was the leading scorer for the team this season.
The Cavaliers are not an offensive team by any stretch, as they average just 65 points per game, but they are one of the best defensive teams in the nation. The team ranked first in points allowed and in the top 25 on defense in rebounding and they will be a tough matchup for every team they face moving forward. FSU comes into the game after winning just eight games in the conference and going 17-15 overall this season.
The team won over Clemson in the last round of the tournament on Wednesday and to end the season they won over Pitt and now they face off against Virginia. The team averaged 67 points per game and gives up that much and in this matchup it should be Virginia all the way. Justin Anderson has been out and he is likely to return for the Cavs and that should help the team on offense, even if it's not for this game. The team won the conference tournament last year and he has been out since February with a broken finger and he may be able to return for the NCAA tournament and possibly for the end of the ACC. The team may matchup with Louisville in the semifinals or against North Carolina.
