ACC Tournament

State, Carolina in ACC semis Saturday

Posted March 16, 2013

— Two Triangle teams face one more hurdle apiece to advance to the ACC Tournament title game, and a rubber match to claim season supremacy. uncduke16 ACC Tournament live interactive bracket

North Carolina State University (24-9, 11-7 ACC) cruised through their quarterfinal match-up with Virginia Friday, 75-56. Scott Wood led the way with 23 points and C.J. Leslie added 17 points and 11 rebounds. State also got strong performances from freshman T.J. Warren (18 points) and senior Richard Howell (12 rebounds).

The Wolfpack have a greater challenge Saturday at 1 p.m. when they meet ACC top seed Miami (25-6, 15-3). The Hurricanes are ranked No. 9 in the nation and beat State by a point in the teams' only meeting this season.

The University of North Carolina (23-9, 12-6) will be looking for a third straight berth in the tournament final when they meet Maryland at 3 p.m. The Tar Heels face seventh-seeded Maryland, which upset second-ranked Duke on Friday.

The third-seeded Heels took control of their quarterfinal game with a 13-0 run early in the second half to beat the reigning champion Florida State Seminoles in a rematch of last season's championship game.

Maryland (22-11, 8-10) dominated the Blue Devils by shutting down Ryan Kelly and holding the league's best team from 3-point range to 4-of-25 shooting from beyond the arc.


Both games air on WRAL-TV, 99.9 FM The Fan ESPN Radio and via stream on the WRALSportsFan app.

    It hasn't happened in the ACC yet, but it has happened in other conferences.

    hey, don't know if you heard it on the State/Miami game but PJ, TJ's name has changed again. According to the woman commentator on ESPN he is now BJ. How hard is it to remember a 2 letter name

    I believe that you are right about that. I think State is one of the only teams to ever make it to Sunday and having played on Thursday, but they ran out of gas, and lost pretty handily. Winning 4 games in 4 days at this level of competition is no small task.

    I may be wrong, so don't hold me to this, but I heard on the radio yesterday that no team has won on Sunday who had to play 4 straight games. Could State be the team to break that streak?

    I don't think State can beat Carolina on a 4th day of basketball.

    But I'd like to see a State-UNC final anyway. Let the chips fall where they may. So, GO PACK! and (lowercase letters) go heels.

    It would be awful to lose a championship to the Holes, but it would be pretty gratifying to beat them for one, too.

    ************ <----- Hey State, I'll spot you a few of these if Hairston can't play and you win the ACC.

    If the Pack wins, go heels. If the pack lose, go terps!! LOL!!

    The North ACC champion will be in MSG today.

    If so i`d think the line would be alittle closer since he`s still questionable.

    Im sure there`s alot of action on the Terps right now. If Hairston is announced close to gametime that he`s out, you`ll see the game taken off the boards at
    Cat 5 speed lol

    Think they were waiting to learn more about Hairston's injury?
