Virginia took a half-step back earlier in the week in its loss to Virginia Tech, but getting the coveted double-bye in the ACC Tournament is still very much on the table, though with less room for error. Getting a win today against Miami, currently in third in the conference, would be a big step in the right direction and a great win towards building a March resume.
