    ACC doesn't recognize regular season championships. FSU was awarded the ACC tournament trophy and is recognized as the official ACC champs.

    Thats odd.
    Commissioner Swofford just stated that they award 2 trophies.
    One for the Regular season champ and one for the tourney champ.

    Unless Wiki is wrong:

    "The ACC Men's Basketball Tournament (popularly known as the ACC Tournament) is the conference championship tournament in basketball for the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). The tournament has been held every year since 1954, the ACC's first season. It is a single-elimination tournament and seeding is based on regular season records. The winner, declared conference champion..."

    "Since July 1, 1961, the ACC's bylaws have included the phrase "and the winner shall be the conference champion" in referring to the tournament, meaning that the conference tournament winner is the only champion of the ACC. The ACC is unique in college basketball in that it does not recognize a regular season champion in any way"


    You might want to re think what you just said.

    The winner of the ACC Tournament might officially be recognized as the ACC Champion but even if it’s unofficial, teams are recognized for winning the ACC regular season and every team’s Wikipedia page lists every season that they were regular season champions. There’s also a Wikipedia page that lists every regular season champion since the ACC was formed going back to 1954.

    Duke said they aren't participating in the NCAA tourney even if there is one. Zero chance they are having this tourney now.

    it was the ACC commissioner that just said that FSU was regular season champions and handed them a trophy for it. I was watching the trophy presentation too. Guess it was just a not knowing wtf to do since this is all so unprecedented.

    Edit: maybe he did give them the accT trophy bc the tourney was cancelled and they won the regular season, but he def said usually we hand out two trophies this week. Idk it’s all a pointless clusterfk at this stage

    Kansas just said they weren’t playing in the NCAAT either, regardless if it doesn’t get cancelled.

    AZ state did as well although not even sure they are a lock to make it in anyways.

    .

    Yes, the same idiot who said the games would be played as scheduled today, then retracted 20 minutes later after someone read him the riot act.

    Least he can’t be as stupid as the big east commissioner canceling their first game at half. Like dam u already got all the people in there and played a half of the game. If people were to get infected they would have already been infected by halftime most likely. I just don’t think they wanted St. John’s to beat creighton then cancel the rest of the tourney and have to give creighton the Trophy bc they were the 1 seed despite already being ousted from the tourney.

    Man I feel ya, we’ve been through some self inflicted dark times the past few years, but this team has been somewhat of a silver lining bc I felt like we had a punchers chance of making a run if givin the right bracket/matchups.
