The Cavaliers have one final chance to clinch the No. 4 seed in the ACC Tournament, needing a win at Maryland in their season finale Sunday.
Heading into the weekend, Virginia, Miami, N.C. State, and Clemson were tied for the fourth spot in the conference standings, all with 8-7 records.
On Saturday, Miami cruised past Boston College 77-56 to emerge from pack (9-7) and will await their fate Sunday. The Hurricanes will be either the No. 4 or No. 5 seed.
In short, a win for Virginia and they clinch a much-needed first round bye and the No. 4 seed. The Cavaliers are battling with a less-than-healthy 7-man rotation and have lost five of their last eight games.
With a loss, a Clemson loss, and N.C. State win, UVa would be the No. 7 seed. The Cavaliers get No. 6 with a loss and Clemson win or a loss and losses by the Tigers and N.C. State.
Clemson plays at Florida State at 12 p.m., Virginia tips off at 2 p.m. at Maryland, and N.C. State travels to Virginia Tech at 6 p.m.
Virginia takes an overall record of 21-8 into College Park, losing the last two games. The Cavaliers defeated Maryland 71-44 in Charlottesville on February 18. Maryland is 13-3 this season at Comcast Center.
