It's tournament time. Will Clemson or Virginia Tech come out on top in this ACC Tournament matchup tonight? Lightning Locks talks you through this matchup.

Clemson vs Virginia Tech Prediction: ACC Matchup

It's tournament time. We love the conference tournaments better than the big one because these teams all know each other really well. These are teams fighting to get into the tournament and you can even have a team with 8 wins all year make it in. We go to the ACC today and we see if Clemson or Virginia Tech can pull off a miracle run this year because right now they have to spell tournament with NIT only.

Let's look at Clemson who should have dominated North Carolina State yesterday but barely won at the end because they are not that good a team this year other than PJ Hall (stop him and you should beat them). They did play Virginia Tech once this year and they upset them as a home dog 63-59. Virginia Tech shot 10% worse than their average and clearly wasn't on their game which is weird because they had won 9 out of the last 10 before the season finale. Clemson has no shot of making the tournament unless they win it all (conference tournament) and we don't see that happening since we don't even see them winning today. The coach said after the game we are going to have to play better and shoot better and don't expect Virginia Tech to shoot 35% and 17% from the 3 point line like North Carolina State did.

If you look at Clemson's last 10 games you see they lost six in a row to the best teams in the ACC and some not so good but they beat only one good team down the stretch in Wake Forest before the Virginia Tech win. This team has size but this game will come down to 3-point shooting as Virginia Tech is the best in the ACC and 6th in the country hitting 39% while Clemson is 183rd  and doesn't match up well with the Virginia Tech guards. We will start off with what we just finished with when we talk about Virginia Tech. They shoot 3's and they are damn good at it. They have seven guys who shot over 30% this year and three over 40% and this team only goes eight deep. They are also a great free-throw shooting team with three guys shooting over 80% and the whole team 75% meaning they don't give away free points.

When Virginia Tech is on they are hard to beat and the Clemson game was one of their worst shooting performances of the year and the least amount of field goals they made this year. This team lives and dies by their shooting and we fully expect them to remember their last game and get revenge against this same team. Virginia Tech tourney lives are on the line; they must win a few games in this ACC tournament or their season is over. Keve Aluma is their star and he was embarrassed by his performance against Clemson.

We fully expect the team that was 9-1 down the stretch to come out there with fresh legs and win this game by 8-10 points. With one of the best defenses in the country, a great 3-point shooting team who was ice cold in their last game, we fully expect this Hokie team to step up today. Virginia Tech had won three in a row and seven out of eight before the season finale. Let's get sweet revenge today and watch Virginia Tech play Notre Dame tomorrow, which they'll need to win if they want to sneak into the NCAA tournament. We see Virginia Tech -5 everywhere so lay the five points tonight on ESPN2 for your viewing pleasure and let's do the Hokie Pokey after we win tonight.
