Game 11: Game 7 victor vs.

Sound familiar? It should.

Clemson's only hope at making the NCAA tournament is to win the ACC tournament and earn an automatic bid. NC State is now 9-7 all-time in ACC Tournament first-round games. 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.

"As insane as it sounds, I think we're still evolving because of all the injuries and interruptions that we've had", Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "And that's it. Sometimes, it's not nuclear science here". "To play back-to-back days, it can be tough".

"He got in a groove early".

"We'd like to play some of the teams that beat us", Pitino said before the seeds were finalized. That factor is going to catch up to the Blue Devils eventually.

The Louisville Cardinals are playing the Duke Blue Devils in ACC Tournament play on Thursday. They're one of the lengthiest teams in the league, but don't mistake rangy limbs for fragility - they're also the best rebounders in the ACC thanks in large part to forwards Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks.

CU: Miami looks to be in the 7-9 seed range, unless we win the ACC tourney (a tall task to say the least). This win closed out UNC's first flawless record at the Smith Center since 2011. There have been numerous different lineup combinations, a fair share of controversy involving temperamental senior Grayson Allen and more than a few questions about Duke's traditionally staunch defense. That can't be held against them too much, given the historic strength of the ACC this season. Allen was booed loudly every time he touched the ball all night.

Now that that's out of the way, Miami turns their focus to #1 seed and ACC Regular Season Champion North Carolina.

Duke: Shot 54 percent in the first half but 37 percent after halftime. Overshadowed in the loss was Clemson's brilliance at the free throw line.

UNC: The Tar Heels shot 51 percent and finished with a 15-5 edge in second-chance points. He had averaged 17.6 points per game in the last three regular-season games. Hicks, who sat out the first meeting due to a hamstring injury, had a game-high nine rebounds.

Day 2 of the ACC Tournament is here, and just like that Clemson's task at hand increases dramatically from the stroll the Tigers enjoyed Tuesday.

By now you're well aware of the Syracuse Orange's first round matchup with the Miami Hurricanes in the ACC Tournament.
