Virginia got its fifth true road win Wednesday night at Boston College, and it was a Quad 2 win – which is supposed to be a good thing, two good things, actually.

You know, the road win, and it being a Quad 2.

A Quad 1 is better, but a Quad 2, you know, ain’t bad.

The computers, as you see below, barely noticed.

Metric Previous Rank Rank Today Change
SOR 35 32  +3
ELO 38 33 +5
KPI 38 35  +3
NET 48 46 +2
BPI 48 46  +2
KenPom 67 64  +3
Average 44.8 42.7  +2.1

Looking at the ACC as a whole, Wake Forest (18-10, 10-7 ACC), even with the loss at Notre Dame, is still looking OK, computer-wise.

Pitt (18-10, 9-8 ACC), meanwhile, is going to need to either run the table – at BC, at home with FSU and NC State – or win the ACC Tournament.

School Average Rating Projected Seed Line
UNC  8.0  2
Duke  11.5  3
Clemson  22.3  5/6
Wake Forest  38  9/10
Virginia  42.7  10/11
Pitt  57.5  bubble
