The ACC Tournament 2-4-7: No. 1 UVA vs. North Carolina

2018 ACC Tournament: No. 1 Virginia faces 6th seeded North Carolina in championship game

Analysis: It feels like just yesterday we had another installment in the Tobacco Road Rivalry. Fortunately for fans of things that are fun, the third 2018 installment of Duke vs.

The byproduct of a bad tournament draw, No. 11 Syracuse was overmatched against No. 6 North Carolina, the defending national champions, which needed two late-season losses to tumble into the six-seed by way of tiebreakers.

As for the suit jacket, it too lived to fight another day.

What you need to know...

... They were No. 51 in KenPom ratings before playing North Carolina. Unlike the regular season matchup between these two teams, Carolina took care of the 'Cuse easily, defeating the Orange 78-59.

Another valuable asset for the Blue Devils' offensive machine is sophomore Raine Wilson.

But it's the defense that has vaulted the Blue Devils from good to scary over the last month.

North Carolina: The Tar Heels lost to Miami on a 40-foot 3-pointer at the buzzer in Chapel Hill on February 27.

Pinson came to Chapel Hill as a five-star prospect, but took a supporting role for his first three years, never averaging more than 6.1 points per game in a season.

The Tar Heels come in on a high note after beating the No. 24 Miami (FL) Hurricanes in their last outing, 82-65.

So as he is wont to do, he sent five new players onto the floor to see if they could do any better. Duke, on the other hand, ended Notre Dame's ACC Tourney run, and quite possibly, its season.

The Blue Devils went on to win the conference championship the next night, becoming the first seed outside the top 4 to win the tournament.

But Tar Heels' Roy Williams, one of the most experienced coaches in the country, subbed out all five of his starters.

With a career-high 25 points and 11 rebounds, UNC senior Theo Pinson registered his sixth double-double in the last 14 games (Pinson had one double-double in the first 104 games of his career) ... A three-point play by reserve guard Seventh Woods - who missed 17 games during the regular season due to injury and had not scored since the Tar Heels' win over MI on November 29 - put UNC on the board ... When Johnson was helped off the court, Berry returned to the game. "I crossed over like we're taught to do and saw their big man coming off his man, so I just attacked him".

"I don't love anybody more than I love (Pinson)", Williams said. But I definitely think that we're getting better and we're continuing to grow as a team, and it's not a better time to grow as it is in March when we're getting into tournaments and stuff like that.
