My brief take on the 2021 ACC tournament: With no elite team in the league this year, the tournament seems more wide open than most years. However, I think 1 seed UVa got a pretty good draw, although Syracuse could give them problems if they get by the Wolfpack. Still, I think the Cavaliers win it as long as they don't drop their first game. If you want a bit of a dark horse, Georgia Tech might be the pick. They seem to be playing very well lately. Enjoy!
