UVA defeats North Carolina to win ACC Tournament

Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo always says he hopes to "win the weekend" in the NCAA Tournament.

She earned her 15th individual title in the 800 meters at the 3A state championships in the spring of her senior year to break a tie with Wilson Fike's Sabrina Thompson who won her 14 titles in sprints and relays in the mid-1990s. Wichita State had two chances to regain the lead, but Austin Reaves missed a jumper and Robinson recorded his critical steal, setting up two game-clinching free throws by Robert Gray Jr. He's been around. He would know. "He is a coach's son as I am and he's been around a lot". He said he told it to them both before and after the game. He gets a couple of months, and by early February, it was obvious to everyone.

"We are starting to turn heads now", Guy said.

"It was really satisfying to finally contribute to the team", the former West Carteret standout said. "When you put that with our system and how we play defense and everything, it's a special team". We got the No. 1 strength of schedule. The next game we prepared all zone. "What we do works". "We had a stretch where three or four teams couldn't score against us". The Cavaliers had the overall No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament wrapped up, and they had their choice of locations and regions.

Bennett declined to say if he thought it was unfair for the committee to build a seemingly hard region around the No. 1 overall seed. But more often than not, North Carolina is a two-headed attack hoping one of the other options steps up.

That was until they faced off with North Carolina on Friday night.

After eliminating Syracuse from the ACC tournament, and perhaps keeping them from making the NCAA tournament, Williams commented on how his Tar Heels were able to anticipate what the Orange wanted to do so easily.

Marshall won't be able to match Marshall's Shockers in terms of talent, but plays a freewheelng style under coach Dan D'Antoni that's hard to prepare for on short notice.

UVA led for the final 28:54 and seemingly had an answer every time UNC scored a bucket. That's a far cry from the UNC teams of yesteryear, when Tyler Hansbrough and Sean May and Kennedy Meeks turned the paint into a beefcake factory. His ability to pass from the high-post combined with the fact that the shooting ability of Joel Berry II, Kenny Williams and Cam Johnson on the perimeter makes them a nightmare offensively, one that can not be overwhelmed by a front line the size of Duke's.

Simpson was subsequently found liable for the deaths in a 1997 civil suit and ordered to pay damages totaling $33.5 million. The special's executive producer, Terence Wrong, says Darden's "theory is that Charlie is OJ's alter ego".

She wasn't done earning points this winter for a Tar Heels squad that finished fifth in the 15-team meet with 61 points. You realize they weren't even picked in the top 25?

Junior forward Luke Maye led three Tar Heels in double figures with 20 points. "It took a while to get used to wearing a brace, but I felt fine from tip-off".

One thing that's for certain is that Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State and N.C. Central will be among the 68 teams in the NCAA tournament. On defense, the Cavaliers play the stifling Pack Line, which makes it exceedingly hard for opponents to get off uncontested shots. The good news for UNC is that the Heels proved here in Brooklyn that they're built for the postseason. They move the ball so well to find the open shot. So that's good for us.

Sophomore guard Kyle Guy has scored 34 points in two ACC Tournament games this week, which matches the total number of points he had in his last five regular-season games combined. It's the last part of that paragraph that was the biggest issue on Friday.

"All week in practice I was just trying to get used to it", Guy said.

So there are some issues there. They have done it their way: Pack Line defense and a bevy of threes.

In the first half, Virginia maintained a lead for a majority of the twenty minutes. They are improved offensively, too.

Nebraska won 22 games and went 13-5 in Big Ten, but was 1-6 against quadrant-1 teams. The Aggies started hot but cooled in January as they battled injuries before winning seven of 10 games to finish the regular season.
