ACC basketball is off to a rocky start in non-conference play

For the second season in a row, it appears that Virginia will not be able to count on the ACC to help build an NCAA Tournament resume. While the Cavaliers have done well in carrying the Atlantic Coast Conference flag with two solid victories over ranked opponents, the rest of the conference has not seen similar success in non-conference play.

As of the publication of this article (before the games on Friday, 11/25), the ACC has a combined record of 6-12 against major opponents in the conference. The bottom half of the ACC was particularly weak, as the bottom seven teams in the conference were going 0-9 against major conference foes. Even the Carolina Blue Bloods didn’t look as dominant as they were told.
