The Virginia baseball team came up short in its quest for the 4th ACC Tournament title in school history, after finishing with a record of 2-1 record in pool play.  

Virginia Tech and North Carolina represented the league in the ACC Championship Game.  

The Cavaliers finish the regular season with a record of 47-10 on the season, and await the announcement of the NCAA Tournament Field.   

UVa will likely earn a National Seed for the 3rd time in the last four years.  

The Wahoos had more wins in conference than any other ACC team (22-8), and only lost two series all season: at Georgia Tech, and at Virginia Tech.  

Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor says the strength of the league this year deserves a lot of respect.

"There is absolutely no question that this league, I believe, deserves four national seeds.  No question," says O'Connor.  "Certainly it would be unprecedented, but sometimes that just the way it works, and I think our league is deserving of it."  

The ACC had #2 North Carolina, #3 Virginia, #5 Florida State, and #7 NC State ranked in the Top Ten heading into the conference tournament.  

Clemson, Virginia Tech, Miami, and Georgia Tech are all in the Top 25.  

There are eight National Seeds, which would each host a Regional, as well as a Super Regional, provided they advance.  

No conference has ever had four National Seeds.  

The Regional sites will be announced Sunday night, with the NCAA Tournament unveiled Monday at noon.
