This weekend had all the feel of the calm before the storm, with next weekend being the final matches before tourney time. Pretty much every team did exactly as expected this weekend. NC State continues to have a strong April, although they faltered on Sunday to a Virginia team that needed to prove it could win some tough conference matches, especially on the road. The Cavs split the weekend in Carolina, dropping their match against UNC on Friday.
The heavyweights took care of business with Duke beating an up and coming Syracuse team. Wake did enough to remain in the mix taking care of Louisville on Sunday, but its loss on Friday to NC State felt like a tale of two teams headed in opposite directions. Georgia Tech, Miami, and Florida State all had relatively easy weekends without being tested. Louisville, Notre Dame, Va Tech, and Pittsburgh were unable to play the role of spoiler.
Boston College has had a fairly positive spring and was able to get its first-ever win against Notre Dame on Friday.
