NC State falls to Clemson in ACC Basketball Tournament first round

2017 ACC Tournament: Preview, Bracket, Seeds, Location, Time, How to Watch

Miami is 13-11 All-Time in the ACC Tournament. "But we're getting better". But it's an important one for a few teams, at least. Somehow Rob was the only person to predict that Clemson would win the first game of the tournament, despite the Tigers being favored.

Kamari Murphy had 16 points and 10 rebounds to help Miami hold off Syracuse 62-57 in the second round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, in NY.

Duke leads the overall series 7-6 with the Cardinals but the Cardinals have won two in a row. No. 7 Xavier - 9:30 p.m.

A simple look at the box score from the last time these two teams squared off in Durham paints the narrative of a dismal first half for the Tigers. However, Clemson hit back-to-back 3-pointers to expand the lead to 16 with 10:18 left in the game.

Game 5: No. 5 Duke vs.

Tyron Woodley Narrowly Defeats Stephen Thompson (UFC 209 Results)
Woodley, who has no problem speaking his mind, feels confident on the road to revenge with the longest and tallest Thompson. Saturday's fight will test both fighter's ability to adapt and employ the lessons they learned from their first match.

Chance of making NCAA Tournament: No matter how much Lunardi hates them, Syracuse probably has enough quality wins to be reasonably comfortable about their tournament prospects, though a win or two in the conference tournament wouldn't hurt. But certainly this one. Wins against some of the nation's top teams such as North Carolina, Duke, Louisville, and Virginia.

The Louisville Cardinals and Virginia Cavaliers both sit right behind North Carolina on the board to win this tournament, going off at +400 each on those college basketball betting lines. It was vintage Kennard. Freshman Dennis Smith Jr. was held to just 7 points on 3 of 12 from the field. He's been able to pull his team through it when everyone else is either exhausted or in a funk or whatever, and he may have to do it again. They committed 15 turnovers, allowing 21 points off the giveaways, and never made a charge in the second half.

And Syracuse sits well back of the favorites at +2500 on the ACC tournament odds, but still edges the Hurricanes, who trail at +3300 despite earning SU wins in five of seven meetings with the Orange and dominating North Carolina in a 77-62 win as 5.5-point home underdogs on January 28.

NC State could not get closer than eight points in the second half. "I know that they're going to try their best and that anything can happen". Clemson won 75-61. Allen has struggled for several weeks with an ankle injury, which has limited his effectiveness in games and his time on the practice court.

Game 12: Game 8 victor vs. I thought we made some mistakes defensively in the second half for sure. That doesn't mean Syracuse folk won't be here IN DROVES, though. Miami is the higher-rated team here, and certainly the better defensive team. A win over Miami on Wednesday would finally give them a meaningful win away from home, and might be the last piece of their at-large puzzle. Or will Miami make it a very stressful Selection Sunday for Syracuse? The game featured 24 lead changes and 14 ties before UNC finally pushed ahead for good in the final six minutes, with its final margin the biggest lead for either team all night. The decision of Andrew White to transfer to Syracuse alleviated some of this, but the team, especially in the backcourt, was largely an unknown.
