ACC tournament 2017 scores, schedule, bracket, results: Wake advances past BC

Louisville and Kentucky remain on track to finish the season ranked in the Top 10

Game 6: No. 7 Virginia Tech vs. The Blue Devils made 28 of 35 free throws. The Tar Heels shot 51.5 percent against the Orange. Boyden forced a 5-5 tie before Dickerson bounced back with the final two games to create another first-to-10 tiebreaker of a third set.

Can Virginia maintain dominance over Notre Dame? "Some of the reason for that is the character of the guys I coach".

Or Erin Boley. The freshman came off the bench for 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting.

Now, Virginia takes on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

As with all major conference tournaments, the ACC's will focus not only on determining a champion but also on jockeying for NCAA tournament bids. Kennard is the most risky scorer in the ACC and his 28 points matched Berry's total and kept Duke in it with stops and pops, pivots and push shots and the tried-and-true Duke tradition of drawing fouls by initiating contact (Allen is better still at it than Cool Hand Luke).

The top seed hinges on not necessarily winning, but getting to the finals of their conference tournament which would likely mean beating West Virginia.

Allen never doubted she'd being standing amid the balloons and confetti again, even after the N.C. State game. "So he's been more selective", Krzyzewski said. But I've been extremely proud of this team on nights when we lost.

Snapchat firm share price soars on debut
Silicon Valley investor Chris Sacca really regrets not answering an email from Snap CTO Bobby Murphy back in 2012. Snap Inc, Snapchat's parent company, brought in $405 million in revenue in 2016, while spending $925 million.

Offering up a little bit of everything, Farrell had a particularly good week on the defensive front by collecting a trio of steals in each of Notre Dame's contests last week. He's the emotional core of a Blue Devils team that could lose in their first game this week or go all the way; he'll be a big reason why either happens.

But after growing up during the regular season and notching wins against ranked conference foes like North Carolina, Virginia and Duke, the Hurricanes (20-10, 10-8) believe in themselves - and in their ability to make some noise in March, both in Brooklyn at the ACC Tournament and beyond.

Then we have four teams who are firmly on the bubble right now, with Syracuse, Virginia Tech, Miami and Wake Forest all needing a big win. Good things will follow. Syracuse's active 2-3 zone held Miami to 38.9-percent shooting from the field. Their 14-0 tear included back-to-back scores from Turner and ended any anticipation of fourth-quarter drama.

"Watching's not going to change the outcome of it", Perrantes said.

Notre Dame led by as many as 23.

"Our defense broke down, and they scored points", McCallie said. Or will Pitt or NC State make an unexpected Cinderella run? The Irish have gone 15-1 against Duke all-time, winning the last 13 meetings. This team has taken a few years off my life, but if the committee gives them a chance to prove themselves in the big dance, it was all worth it. In total, there will be 14 games played over the next 5 days that will go a long way in determining NCAA Tournament berths and seeds.

To register 13 straight wins against basketball blue blood Duke, 11 in a row versus Louisville (national runner-up in 2009 and 2013) and 18 against Syracuse (last year's national runner-up) is something that can be easily taken for granted and not fully appreciated until years down the line - sort of like defeating USC in football 11 straight years from 1983-93.
