Virginia Tech will be one of the last teams in or out when the field of 65 is announced Sunday.
Virginia Tech is close to missing the NCAA Tournament thanks to New Mexico State's WAC win Saturday night.
The Hokies need a bunch of teams already in the tournament to take care of business this weekend, starting with Duke.
The Hokies are on the NCAA Tournament bubble with only two regular season games and the ACC Tournament remaining on their schedule.
"In short, there might not be a team in the country that has to go into the final month of the season knowing it must do a little extra to differentiate itself than the Malcolm Delaney-led Hokies. Regardless of whether Virginia Tech is one of the best 34 at-large teams from a visual perspective won't mean much if it cannot separate itself from the rest of the outfits scrambling for the last couple spots."
