The ACC Tournament Goes Through North Carolina

The NC State Wolfpack had likewise reloaded and would challenge for a double-bye in the ACC tournament. It bounded away. The resulting free throws gave Clemson its first lead. He also reached double figures in both games, notching 14 against Boston College and 11 against Louisville. Duke executed down the stretch but received quite a scare from Clemson, who will likely miss the NCAA Tournament.

The second round of the ACC tournament will feature the five through nine seeds.

Preview: Florida State's young talent still steals the show in Tallahassee, with sophomore guard Dwayne Bacon leading the Seminoles with 16.9 points per game. You can't really guard them with multiple people very often because the next guy's going to make an open three, and because you have to guard the three-point shot against Duke, it puts you in one-on-one scenarios, and your guys have to be able to guard their guys.

It's an.ACC Tournament Wednesday! The Blue Devils, however, have had issues on defense. 3 out of 4 predicted a repeat victory over VT tomorrow, but no one was willing to stick their neck out for an upset over FSU on Thursday in what would be the third game in three days for the Deacs. Even as the higher seeds, they have to be on alert for a tough game against opponents that might now be in a rhythm.

Irish freshman Zoe Spence follows through on a shot during Notre Dame's 5-2 win over Purdue on February 22 at Eck Tennis Pavilion.

Wake Forest took care of business against Boston College on Tuesday, and that might be enough to get the Demon Deacons an at-large bid after what they accomplished in the final week of the regular season. "UL will topple the favorites in UNC and FSU".

But Luke Kennard's short jumper in the last minute eliminated Clemson from the tournament and capped off another huge game for the Wooden Award finalist.

Kyle Guy scored 20 points to match a career high and London Perrantes added 13 in the second half to help No. 21 Virginia pull away for a 75-63 victory against Pittsburgh in the second round of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament on Wednesday night in NY. They haven't fared well against the spread, however, covering just three times in their last 10 games (with a push versus North Carolina) and are 11-18 ATS on the year.

Isaiah Hicks scored 21 points for the Tar Heels, who battled through a almost shot-for-shot fight with their fiercest rival to finish unbeaten at home. Game 8 victor - 5:30 p.m. The Tar Heels will avenge their loss in late February and come out on top.

With six different champions in the last six ACC Tournaments, this year's is sure to produce some nail-biters. It should be close, and this may be a toss-up game, but it doesn't look like Duke will get revenge against a team that beat them 78-69 in their only meeting this season.

The Hurricanes may have the second or third best defense in the conference, holding teams to just 63.4 points per game this season.

Blossomgame had 14 points at the half as the Tigers held a 39-28 lead at the break.
