Charlotte seems to be in the middle of the basketball world as the Queen City hosted the 2019 NBA All-Star Game. The ACC Tournament will take place in the Spectrum Center, the same place as the 2019 NBA All-Star Game. North Carolina and Duke fans always travel for these tournaments, but they will not have to travel far this time around.

Virginia is the reigning conference tournament champion, but it will have to relive old memories in the Spectrum Center. Charlotte was the Cavaliers’ first round destination last season, where they became the first number one seed to lose to a 16 seed. Virginia fans will have to wait until Thursday to see their team play as the Cavaliers have secured a double bye in the conference tournament.

The seedings of the conference tournament are subject to change, but this is what the seeds would look like if the season ended today. Virginia and North Carolina are tied for the best record in the ACC at 15-2, but the Cavaliers get the edge due to their head-to-head victory in Chapel Hill. The same is true in the cases of Syracuse, NC State and Boston College as all three teams have the same conference record as the team below them.
