North Carolina vs Virginia

The North Carolina Tar Heels face the Virginia Cavaliers in the ACC Tournament Championship Title tonight at 8 p.m. on WFMY News 2.

Duke: The Blue Devils will find out Sunday if it did enough to earn a top seed in the NCAA Tournament. Even more impressive is that much of the lockdown effort came without ACC Defensive Player of the Year Isaiah Wilkins who was banged up shortly before halftime.

"Through that big stretch in the second half we were really, really good", North Carolina head coach Roy Williams said. Carolina ended up with a modest 12-7 edge in second-chance points, which was more than accounted for by UVA's huge advantage in points off turnovers.

Given their hard strength of schedule, a win could potentially earn them a No. 1 seed in next week's NCAA tournament. "To play in the Barclays Center - obviously you have the Nets playing here - so many great players have played on that floor". UNC had a 15-3 lead real quick. He was whistled for a flagrant 1 technical foul after intentionally taking out Tar Heel forward Garrison Brooks by midcourt late in the first half of the rivals' rubber match in an ACC semifinal at Barclays Center. Although Duke eventually dug out of that double-digit hole to go in front 27-26 later in the half, its lead only lasted 18 seconds.

EVERYONE ON THE BUBBLE: One day after Nevada erased a double-digit deficit to knock of UNLV the Wolf Pack found a way to trail by 30 points to San Diego State at the half.

The victor will face off against either Virginia or Clemson in the championship game on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. Virginia and Clemson play at 7 p.m. tonight.

The governors of North Carolina and Virginia appear to be enjoying their teams reaching Saturday night's ACC tournament title game. "All the Tar Heels that are up in NY - it brings everyone together for the game". Joel Berry won the Everett Case Award as MVP. Those were the only positives. North Carolina is looking for its 19th tournament championship. De'Andre Hunter and Mamadi Diakite harassed the Tigers by shooting the gaps in coverage, helping teammates Ty Jerome and Devon Hall pile up three steals each. With 25 points on 9-for-12 shooting, Theo Pinson was the game's leading scorer. After that it didn't matter.

Meeting for the second time in less than a week, the animosity surfaced on several occasions. In the Tony Bennett era, Virginia has won 3 games in 3 days at the ACC Tournament just once, when the Cavaliers won the Championship in 2014.

Virginia forced Clemson into 19 turnovers and outscored the Tigers 25-8 off of them. Almost a half-foot of snow fell and surrounding areas saw even more snowfall.

Finally, the Tar Heels got out to a big start.

Bagley also had his pocket picked multiple times when he brought the ball down in the post, finishing with four giveaways. That hasn't always happened in the past. It will mark the 22nd time these two teams have squared off in the ACC Tournament. A victory would certainly win the Tar Heels an NCAA first round assignment in Charlotte, along with Virginia.

Both teams are on a roll.
