Virginia Tech will put on its dancing shoes once again this March. It's the first time the Hokies will participate in March Madness in back-to-back seasons since 1984-85, 1985-86. Marquee wins at Virginia, as well as against North Carolina, Clemson, and Duke helped lock up Tech's at-large bid.
No. 8 Virginia Tech will play No. 9 Alabama on Thursday in Pittsburgh, PA. It's the late tip on TNT.
The ACC, the best conference in college basketball, led the field with 9 at-large berths.
