The Deacons host the Hokies in their final ACC home game of the season. … With two games remaining, Wake Forest has all but clinched the No. 13 seed in the ACC tournament, which would pit them against the No. 12 seed (likely N.C. State) in the opening round. … Virginia Tech – which beat the Deacons 93-91 on Jan. 13 – has three games left, and is 10th in the league standings. But the Hokies are just a game behind Pitt and Syracuse, and 1 1/2 games behind Clemson.
