ACC Tournament 2011: Is Florida State Safe Without Beating Virginia Tech?
The ACC Tournament will feature many big names, but none may be more important to their team and their NCAA Tournament chances than Chris Singleton, who is still hoping to suit up for the No. 5 seed Florida State Seminoles (21-9, 11-5 ACC).
The 'Noles are looking good for a berth, but they are not guaranteed anything as of yet. They will take on the winner of the Virginia Tech vs. Georgia Tech game in the first round, but their opponent is irrelevant.
Singleton has missed the past five games with a broken foot. If he is cleared to play, then Florida State becomes a very dangerous team. That will also go over will with the selection committee, as they will want to see something from him before they give the Seminoles an at-large bid.
Without Singleton, Florida State could still win their opening game. They have enough talent. But without him, they will not get past Duke (most likely) in the next round.
If Singleton can play and is healthy, then this team is good enough to win the ACC Tournament. He is that much of a difference maker.
