The Blue Devils' will now focus their attention on Florida State, in an ACC tournament matchup taking place tonight at 8:30 pm ET. The other time came in 2009 when the Big East had Louisville, Connecticut and Pittsburgh - though the Huskies were the only team to survive their bracket and reach the Final Four that year.
No. 4 Florida State vs.
Florida State rolled to a 69-59 win Friday night against ACC Tournament No. 1 seed and second-ranked Virginia to advance to the conference tournament title game. Saturday night, he climbed the ladder, with ascensions after a regional title and national championship still possible.
Gives FSU 15 wins over ACC opponents, tied for the school record set in 2012.
Virginia will now await whether they will be a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
"It's an honor for to us win", head coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
"I'm very excited just to be a part of the game and going to compete", Williamson said. Nevertheless, at least one double-digit seeded team has made the Sweet 16 in 20 of the past 23 tournaments.
-Michigan State made a strong bid for a No. 1 seed with its win Sunday over Michigan in the Big Ten title game.
Virginia center Jay Huff had a clear path to the basket late in the second half against Florida State on Friday when forward Mfiondu Kabengele, seemingly out of nowhere, swooped in to block the 7-footer's layup attempt into the hands of Florida State teammate Trent Forrest.
Well, Florida State is riding high right now after a shocking victory over the Virginia juggernaut, and now it looks like anything is possible for the team. So the question loomed: Would UNC still be the better team with Duke at full strength? "Basketball is a game of runs and they battled back".
No. 4 Virginia Tech vs.
Against the Cavaliers, it was Nichols' turn to wear the cape. That leaves two more top seeds up for grabs, and both the Blue Devils and Tar Heels are in heavy consideration for those spots.
Miami starter Chris McMahon induced inning-ending double plays to get out of jams in the first two frames, but the Tar Heels finally got a rally going against the sophomore in the third. A Garrison Brooks layup stretched UNC's lead to 10 points before Louisville answered with a 3-pointer.
De'Andre Hunter had 13 points for Virginia (29-3), which had its nine-game winning streak snapped and suffered its first loss to a team other than Duke.
Not bad for a guy who only scored five points when the Seminoles first met UVA in January.
White says he lost his balance just before that shot.
"Would I love to see them?" They had to respect his lobs. They expected to be here, champions of the ACC and again atop the college basketball universe.
The Miami Hurricanes were in a hole early and answered back, No. 8 North Carolina countered back with a knockout blow to even the series with a 9-3 win. The freshman has already earned one National Player of the Year award. Hachimura, the junior sensation, has been one of the stars on the team this year. It's tough, but we've just got to get better. But there's that nagging feeling that the Tar Heels let the third installment of this year's series get away, and somewhere along the line, they might have one last crack at their nemesis.
Less promising are hopes for real reform out of the NCAA's recently suggested package of fixes, or from the aftermath of a ruling in U.S. District Court that essentially told the association to continue with business as usual when it came to compensating players with pennies compared to the billions they bring in.
