UNC downs Duke 74-69 for berth in ACC Tournament final

UNC downs Duke 74-69 for berth in ACC Tournament final

"We understand we lost the last game, so that's going to get us even more hyped up about it, but at the same time, you can't be bigger than the game". The Cavs held the Tigers to 15 of 47 shooting. The Tar Heels beat Duke on February 8 82-78, but the Blue Devils avenged that loss on March 3 with a 74-64 win in Durham.

Partly it was the brutal physicality of the game that made it deteriorate at the end. UNC has played three good halves against Duke and had one really bad one.

"They rebound at a level above the rim that I haven't seen in college basketball", said Brey, who was an assistant coach at Duke for eight seasons before he began his collegiate head coaching career in 1995.

It was dramatic basketball, hardly a flawless performance, but these things are never pretty.

John Matthews, an amateur who goes by the moniker SyracuseFan7 and is the third-most accurate historically on the website, The Bracket Matrix, put Syracuse second on his list of teams heading to Dayton for the First Four.

This Tobacco Road rivalry is the second game of the night in Brooklyn, with top seed Virginia battling No. 4 Clemson. That's not exactly rocket science, but it was a bit of a question mark earlier in the season when the team was struggling. Virginia is the number one team in the ACC and the country. Notre Dame suffered a seven-game losing streak in the middle of the season, won just eight regular season games in the ACC and lost to the likes of Ball State and in while at full strength. "Their defense was a million times stronger than our offense".

"You know, look, I hope they get in because I think they can beat anybody", Krzyzewski said.

Duke still holds a 13-9 edge over UNC in the ACC Tournament but the Tar Heels are now 5-1 in the Barclays Center. "They're the number one team, unanimously, and they beat us by 77 points or whatever it was".

In a sense, Carolina has been chasing Virginia since that game. Duke: The Blue Devils had six turnovers on their first 14 possessions and just one field goal in the first 10 minutes of the game. Joel Berry II and Gary Trent Jr. stared each other down after wrestling for a ball. Going up against the cerebral Cavaliers will come down to a test of coaches and execution. "And when we're playing defense and we're out there just running around and being active and competing-you know, it's hard to stop us".

There aren't a lot of college fours that are going to be able to do both of those things.

UNC didn't make it easy, however.

An author of six books, Chris also co-wrote a book on the history of University of Virginia basketball, Mad About U: Four Decades of Basketball at University Hall, which was published in 2006. He was stripped of his captaincy by Duke for another trip as a junior.

The 65th ACC Tournament has been a wild week of clashing styles and personalities. So Brooks took it upon himself to have a great game.

The stubborn Cavaliers against the free-wheeling Heels.

North Carolina averages 42.9 rebounds per game, which ranks first in the NCAA.

But after more than seven minutes and 13 straight missed shots to start North Carolina's second round ACC tournament game against Miami, coach Roy Williams wasn't willing to wait any longer for them to do it.
