ACC Tournament starts Miami Hurricanes' NCAA Tournament run

Balanced Irish dominate Duke for fourth ACC double in four years

The Canes, which unveiled new Adidas uniforms that they will wear during the postseason Monday, climbed into in the No. 25 spot in both major national polls but fell to ACC foes Virginia Tech and Florida State this past week.

Georgia Tech's Josh Pastner, voted the ACC Coach of the Year for guiding a team picked 14th in preseason to an 8-10 conference record, called his Yellow Jackets' improvement "a modern miracle and the eighth wonder of the world".

2 p.m. - No. 10 Wake Forest vs.

The Cavaliers (21-9) would get the victor of another first-round game, Georgia Tech (17-14) and Pittsburgh (15-16). Duke faces Clemson in Wednesday's second round at 2 p.m. It lost in overtime at Pitt on January 4, and then won Saturday, 67-42.

Entering this week's conference tournament at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, third-seeded Notre Dame will need to win three games in order to capture the automatic bid to the upcoming NCAA Tournament. The Tigers reeled off 21 points off 15 North Carolina State turnovers, holding star freshman guard Dennis Smith Jr.to 3-of-12 shooting and seven points in 36 minutes. We know how the Heels won the inside battle - Kennedy Meeks' and Isaiah Hicks' combined advantage of 65 pounds against Amile Jefferson and Jayson Tatum or Harry Giles (or whoever Coach K tried to play at powerless forward). "I think it will probably be equally set amongst everyone". A talented opponent such as Florida State, Virginia or Notre Dame could possibly be waiting for them in the championship game so the Tar Heels have to show resiliency and toughness in order to get through this tournament in one piece.

So for the ACC title game on Saturday, we have the Tar Heels taking on Virginia.

"Watching's not going to change the outcome of it", Perrantes said.

However, they found their groove again when they finished the season with three straight wins, including a revenge win over the Tar Heels. Syracuse's active 2-3 zone held Miami to 38.9-percent shooting from the field.

"You know what? Big-time players have got to make big-time plays in big-time games", UNC coach Roy Williams said. They can also be purchased at the door for $15 on game day.

Miami and Syracuse are respectively the 8 and 9 seeds in the ACC tournament.

Game 8: No. 1 North Carolina vs.

Georgia State (19-11, 12-6 Sun Belt) - RPI: 112, KenPom: 122 - Georgia State beat Georgia Southern 72-67 in the regular season finale and will be the No. 2 seed in this week's Sun Belt Tournament. Reed is a career 39.7-percent 3-point shooter, making 2.4 per game for the Hurricanes.

The 14-4 ACC regular season champs pulled it out by doing the near impossible against Duke. 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.

ACC tournament scores already include two one-sided games in the first-round. CBS Sports' Jerry Palm had the Hurricanes as a 7-seed, facing 10-seed Providence in Sacramento.

WednesdaySecond roundNoon - No. 8 Syracuse vs.

Considering the team had rotation players miss 43 games and 10 different starting lineups, its 10 RPI top-50 wins still stand as quite an impressive feat. He also reached double figures in both games, notching 14 against Boston College and 11 against Louisville.
