ACC Tournament

Three Triangle teams compete Friday in ACC Tournament

Posted March 15, 2013

— The North Carolina State University Wolfpack, winners by 17 over Virginia Tech Thursday, are the first of the Triangle trio to take the floor Friday at the ACC Tournament. Duke (7 p.m.) and UNC (9 p.m.) play in the evening session after enjoying the Thursday bye. NCST vs VT NC State advances over Virginia Tech, 80-63

The fifth-seed Wolfpack meet the Virginia Cavaliers at 2 p.m. They will be looking to build on the poise shown Thursday by veteran leaders Richard Howell, C.J. (Calvin) Leslie and Scott Wood. Howell's 22 points and 12 rebounds were key to State's inside game, and Leslie pulled down his own 7 boards.

Richard Howell Howell: Virginia is like a revenge game

If State can hold serve against the Cavs, No. 1 seed Miami looms in Saturday's early semifinal. The Hurricanes start their quest for the ACC Tournament title in the noon game, facing No. 8 seed Boston College.

Virginia (21-10) actually finished in a tie with NC State for fourth in the league standings at 11-7, but won the head-to- head battle in usual fashion (58-55). Virginia doesn't have a great track record in the ACC Tournament, with a 31-58 overall record.

The Blue Devils and Tar Heels, should they advance Friday against Maryland (7) and Florida State (6) respectively, would face each other – just a week after Duke's resounding 69-53 win at the Dean Smith Center in the regular season finale.

All of Friday's games air on WRAL-TV and 99.9 FM The Fan ESPN Radio.

    I thought State was suppose win every game easily.. weren't they picked
    pre season to win it all??

    What happened??????

  • Unc r Hypocrits Mar 15, 2013

    In MHWPO, Miami is playing the "right" time slot. I think Duke should be the second game (2:30), Carolina at 7, and Virginia at 9:30 tonight.

  • Unc r Hypocrits Mar 15, 2013

    I've never understood why the no.1 seed plays at noon Friday, while seeds 2 and 3 play Friday night. Shouldn't the top 2 seeds play the earliest possible on Friday? A reward and more time to rest for the next day? Just wondering.

    NC State will exit in the 2nd round of the NCAA tourney. Enjoy your last week of basketball.

    I agree with every word, logic makes me think that the teams who are rested should have an edge. If Miami wins and all 3 triangle schools win (which I think they will) it would set up 2 great saturday games. That would mean State gets another shot at Miami who beat them on a tip in, and Duke-UNC for a 3rd time. I'd love to see it.

    Carolina SHOULD have the easiest game of the three, but it's tough to beat a team three times in a year. Duke will be looking to avenge the game in MD and I suspect will be on their A game. State probably has the toughest match up with a tough UVA defense. I think all three win, but with the way the season has been, who knows.

    GO TAR HEELS!

    The problem with State doubling on Harris is that it would require Wood to play defense, which he is incapable of doing. I expect State will either play straight man and hope that Harris is off, or try zone which they have rarely played. I like State's chances but, if they win today, Miami will dispatch them tomorrow.

    Another fine example of the State education - "I see 2 local teams making it threw" Are you kidding me? Did you even go to class? At state or even high school?
