ACC Tournament Predictions: Can Virginia play its way to the title? 3/5/18

Defeating Notre Dame 74-72 on Sunday in the tournament finale, claiming the Cardinals' first ACC tournament championship and their first conference tournament title since 1993.

Thursday evening winners (ESPN or ESPN2/ACC Network), 9 p.m. "I'm just so proud of these guys for banding together and being able to get this amount of wins and have the successful season that we've had". "Whenever you see someone go down and grab their knee like that, the first thing you think is, 'Man, I hope their ACL's OK.' You don't know. You couldn't ask for a better experience". An unlikely match-up against either Boston College or Georgia Tech shouldn't present much of a challenge for Virginia, even though the Cavaliers only beat Boston College by just one point earlier in the season.

It was an opportunity for Syracuse (19-12, 8-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) to fill the biggest void on its resume - the lack of a marquee win - and the Orange capitalized.

Highly touted as the nation's top recruit entering the season, the 6-11, 234-pound Bagley lived up to his billing by keying the fifth-ranked Blue Devils to a 25-6 overall record and the No. 2 seed in the upcoming New York Life ACC Tournament.

The First Team All-ACC choice struggled in North Carolina's final regular season game against Duke. Against Florida State on February 25, he had 25 points on 4-5 three-point shooting.

Game No. 2 - No. 15 Pittsburgh vs. "I'm excited about the way we're playing", Keatts said after Saturday's win against Louisville.




"They're like the cardiac kids", UM coach Jim Larrañaga said. The sophomore guard averages 20 points per game and is capable of going off on any given night, as evidenced by a 37-point performance at Florida State in January.

The UM win marked its fourth consecutive contest that was decided by three points or fewer, tying a record last set by Duke in 1984.

A win in the semifinals would advance Virginia to the ACC Tournament finals and leave them just one win away from winning both the ACC regular season and tournament titles in the same season. He finished with 26 points without making a single 3-pointer. The Raleigh native is tied for the league in scoring at 20.7 points per game. Louisville finished with 15 turnovers, 11 more than N.C. State.

No. 1 Virginia vs. Wednesday noon victor (ESPN/ACC Network), noon. No. 11 Syracuse, another team on the NCAA bubble, faces 14th-seeded Wake Forest in the nightcap.

Boston College (17-14) is the easy pick to win the tourney opener against a Georgia Tech (13-18) team that allowed two more points per game (67.3 ppg) than they averaged this season. No. 11 Syracuse, 7 p.m.

Arizona (24-7, 14-4) had a hard time shaking the Bears (8-23, 2-16).
