After falling to Duke Sunday, North Carolina went to a coin flip for the No. 2 seed in the ACC women’s tournament. They lost it to Maryland and will be the No. 3 seed when things get underway in Greensboro Thursday.

The Blue Devils (27-2, 17-1 ACC) had already secured the No. 1 seed before the rivalry contest Sunday in which they defeated the Tar Heels, 65-58. Duke is looking for their third ACC title in four seasons.

Neither Duke nor North Carolina (26-5, 14-4) will play Thursday after receiving first-round byes. NC State (15-15, 7-11) played their way to a No. 8 seed and will play No. 9 Clemson (9-20, 5-13) on Thursday at 2 p.m.

Florida State (21-8, 11-7) earned the No. 4 seed and the final first-round bye.

The first game of the tournament will get going Thursday at 11 a.m. as No. 5 Miami (20-9, 11-7) takes on No. 12 Virginia Tech (10-19, 4-14).

Duke will play the winner of NC State-Clemson on Friday. UNC will play the winner of Virginia Boston College.

The semifinal games are set for Saturday. The championship game will be contested Sunday at 2 p.m. on ESPN2.

    Lady Heels have been playing well all season and seem to be peaking at the right time. Even with the loss to Duke it shows they made much improvement since the first meeting.

    The Lady Devils definitely earned the #1 seed. I hope the Lady Heels have a good showing in the ACCT, and they should, as they've played well all season.
