ACC Tournament Preview: Players to watch

ACC Tournament Preview: Players to watch

The margin of victory in the second Louisville game was just a single point, with DeAndre Hunter making a desperation three-pointer at the buzzer to win the game.

Notre Dame wanted this one, wanted it bad, wanted redemption for a 33-point loss in Louisville in January. Their defense has remained the same which was expected with Tony Bennett still in there as head coach who is expected to be on a lot of Coach of the Year awards lists. The Cavaliers will receive a double-bye into Thursday's quarterfinal round, along with Duke, Miami, and Clemson.

No Duke players landed on the All-Defensive despite the Blue Devils finishing second in the conference in adjusted defensive efficiency.

Bagley explained his reaction and the comments after his 21 points and 15 rebounds helped lift Duke to a 74-64 win versus North Carolina to secure the No.2 seed in the ACC Tournament. No. 15 Pittsburgh, 2 p.m.

Game 6: Game 2 victor vs. During that time, point guard Matt Farrell also missed games with an ankle injury. We told them that we're really proud of our effort on the whole weekend. No. 2 seed Duke, surging into the postseason and fresh off a rivalry win over Tobacco Road foe North Carolina on Saturday, will aim to play spoiler as it looks to repeat as tournament winners from a season ago.

The Tar Heels, who are ranked No. 12 in the poll, won the tournament in 2016, but fell to rival Duke in last year's semifinals, though that team went on to win the program's sixth NCAA championship.

NEW YORK - Carsen Edwards scored 27 points and Purdue pulled away to reach the Big Ten Tournament championship game for the second time in three seasons.

U.Va. sophomore guard Kyle Guy made the first team along with Bagley, Boston College's Jerome Robinson and North Carolina's Luke Maye and Joel Berry. There was a win against then-No. It has the first time Duke has won three consecutive matches by the score of 7-0 since a stretch running from February 6 to February 13, 2009.

"It's just time to lock in and just go out there and you can't be tight". In order to get four wins in four days, the Wolfpack is going to need Lavar Batts and Greensboro native Sam Hunt to give it big minutes off the bench. He did return for the second to the last game, but ending with an 18-12 record isn't looking favorable on the bubble. "I hope it puts a smile on everybody's face", he said.

I've got Duke (25-6) meeting Virginia Tech in this matchup and the Blue devils are the easy pick apparently seeing as how they beat the Hokies in both of their regular season meetings this, including at home by a whopping 22 points. Each of these three games were closer than expected, and the same will likely be the case in the tournament.
