UVA claims ACC championship for 3rd time in school history

NEW YORK NY- MARCH 09 Garrison Brooks #15 of the North Carolina Tar Heels celebrates against Duke Blue Devils during the semifinals of the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament at the Barclays Center

Graduate of University of Delaware.

It was the school's third ACC tournament win, it's second in this decade.

Virginia spent an entire season exceeding all expectations and making a dominant run through the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The Tar Heels played about as well as any team has this season against the best defensive team in the country, shooting 40 percent and committing only nine turnovers.

"This team is way more skilled", Anderson said.

They've already taken two of three from rival Duke and won single games against Michigan, Tennessee, Ohio State and Clemson. So we've got to go in there and try to play the flawless game.

The Cavaliers had lost seven straight postseason games to North Carolina, but nothing has gone according to script this season for the Cavaliers, who defeated the Tar Heels 71-63 in the ACC championship game at Barclays Center.

Heading into the conference tournament this week, there was nothing truly at stake for Virginia.

Virginia Tech is headed to its second straight NCAA Tournament as an 8-seed, and will face the 9-seed Alabama in Pittsburgh on Thursday night at 9:20 pm.

But you wouldn't have been able to tell all week.

"What they do is very rare, and it works for them", said Tar Heels junior Luke Maye, who scored a game-high 20 points. That's Virginia in a nutshell; the Cavaliers do what they do, and they don't deviate from what Bennett has instilled in them. North Carolina got back to their old ways of not finding more guys other than Maye and Berry to contribute.

Lung Disease Killing Dentists in Mysterious Cluster, CDC Report Says
Approximately 75 percent of the known IPF patients are male, and nearly all are older than 50 at the time of diagnosis. Nine of them were male dental workers - eight dentists, and one dental technician, according to the CDC.

"You fight like you're not supposed to win or nobody expects you to win", he explained. "It's a fight you have to have inside of you or you're not going to be successful at this level".

North Carolina State Wolfpack guard Torin Dorn (2) dunks the ball in the second half against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

Overall, the Tar Heels are a bit of a wild card for the postseason.

None of it fazed the Cavaliers. Sophomore Kyle Guy noted the team was "66.7% of the way done". Nick Rakocevic had 13 points and six rebounds, Jordan McLaughlin had 12 points and nine assists, and Jonah Mathews added 11 points for USC (23-11). The Cavaliers (31-2) have all but clinched the No. 1-overall seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. The Cavaliers were a one seed when they lost in the Final Four to North Carolina in 1981.

At the ACC tournament, Virginia also showed some offensive potency, a scary sign for its opponents next week.

Throw in Tennessee (25-8), the SEC tournament runner-up, and the South is loaded with roadblocks in Virginia's path to the Final Four.

"All week in practice I was just trying to get used to it", Guy said. And I think Tony has just been a marvelous job. They will play LIU-Brooklyn on Tuesday, March 13. Those three have combined for 39 Final Four appearances.

North Carolina Central Eagles guard John Guerra (55) reacts after a play against the Hampton Pirates during the MEAC Tournament Final at Scope Arena. In fact, they talked on the phone early Sunday morning, and Davis predicted the two teams would play.

"He started out slow, but he shot it well", Boeheim said.

No fewer than a dozen teams in the tournament have been named either in the FBI investigation or in media reports that allege coaches and others have directed payments and improper benefits to recruits and players - breaking rules that go to the core of the amateur sports code that defines both the NCAA and the student-athletes who make this billion-dollar business run.
