A quick exit for Seminoles in ACC Tournament

A quick exit for Seminoles in ACC Tournament

Deng Adel added 15 points and eight rebounds for the ninth-seeded Cardinals (20-12), who won for the first time in ACC postseason play and advanced to face top-ranked Virginia in the first quarterfinal Thursday.

But Louisville earned only one win against a power conference team - a 71-62 victory over IN - IN nonleague play, and it lost to Kentucky (21-10), Seton Hall (21-10) and Purdue (28-6).

Cofer and the eighth-seed Seminoles can do a little more on Wednesday when they meet the No. 9-seeded Louisville Cardinals at noon in the Barclays Center.

Exhausted legs and all, the Boston College basketball team didn't go down without a fight. The Cavaliers allowed opponents to score just 52.8 points per game. Guy also grabbed a team-high seven rebounds, and his three-point play with 2:35 left made it 69-54 soon after Louisville had sliced the margin to four.

I'm going to tell you this - Kyle Guy's team wasn't going to lose on Thursday.

The Cardinals have been outscored by an average of 3.8 points in their last five games. With his quick-release jumpers coming off screens, and teammate Devon Hall's intense drives to the basket, Virginia became a scoring machine.

Clemson knocked down 12 3-pointers on 28 attempts and hit 20 of 22 free throws to hold off Boston College.

But Russian national team coach Stanislav Cherchesov said he hoped the World Cup would improve people's attitude toward his country.

With the win, Louisville advances to play top-seeded and No. 1-ranked Virginia.

The Cavaliers are listed as eight-point sportsbook favorites, with the over-under for total points scored set at 117.5. Now, the Cardinals want revenge. The lone win during that time came on the road at the Virginia Tech Hokies.

The Tigers (23-8) were led by Gabe DeVoe who posted his fourth 25-point outing of the season and of his career - tying his career-high - and making 8-of-18 shots from the floor and drilling three 3-pointers in the effort. The other two scorers for the Cardinals this season have been Quentin Snider and Ray Spalding.

Points could be at a premium in this showdown between two of the nation's best defenses.

UofL's NCAA Tournament fate now rests with the selection committee.

"(We) gave them an exceptional number of opportunities to get out and get long bounces and get out in transition", Hamilton said. The last two coaches that BC faced, in North Carolina State's Kevin Keatts and Clemson's Brad Brownell, had plenty of kind words for both the play of the backcourt and the job done by Christian at the helm.

It looked like, if the Cavaliers were going to back up their ACC regular-season title with a run in the league tournament, they'd have to do it without getting much from Guy. Most recently the school lost an NCAA appeal regarding a party in which escorts and strippers were involved with then-players and recruits, forcing the program to vacate its 2013 national championship along with its 2012 Final Four appearance and 122 wins under former coach Rick Pitino.
