Could Virginia's ACC Tournament loss cost it NCAA tourney's top overall seed?

Well, we can at least say we've seen worse from Virginia in March.

FSU controlled the game the entire way, leading by as many as 10 points in the first half and 35-31 at halftime.

The loss leaves the Cavaliers at 29-3 and somewhat unsure footing heading into Selection Sunday, or as unsure footing as you can get when you're still likely to get a 1-seed.

Now, with the season series split at 1-1 and a spot in the ACC semifinals on the line, the teams will meet for a third time.

Florida State will play either Duke or North Carolina in the ACC tournament final on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET. They had also beaten Florida State earlier this season. The only loss in that time came at home to Virginia, the top seed in this week's tournament.

Winning the third ACC Tournament of Tony Bennett's career would have been nice, but winning the ACC Tournament a year ago didn't stop Virginia from suffering one of the most mortifying losses in the history of March Madness.

UNC, which won a share of the ACC regular-season title with the Cavaliers, also got its revenge on Louisville on February 2.
