The bracket for the ACC tournament has been set. With an 8-10 league record, Georgia Tech has earned the No. 11 seed and will play No. 14 seed Pittsburgh Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The winner of that game will play No. 6 seed Virginia Wednesday at 9 p.m. The winner of that game will face No. 3 Notre Dame. Should the Yellow Jackets make it that far, they’ll have played two games in 48 hours while the Irish will be fully rested, the privilege of having earned a double bye.

Tech, which likely has to win at least two games to gain consideration for the NCAA tournament, it’s not an impossible route. The Jackets beat Pittsburgh last week at McCamish Pavilion and then would face a Virginia team that has struggled offensively at points during this season. The Jackets split with Notre Dame, their potential quarterfinal opponent.
