The No. 1 Virginia men's basketball team cleaned up in the ACC basketball awards that were announced on Sunday afternoon. It'll play Wednesday night at 7 in the second round of the tournament against the victor of Tuesday's first-round game pitting No. 10 seed Notre Dame against No. 15 seed Pittsburgh. Jerome was responsible for clutch shots late in U.Va. wins at Duke and Florida State, and in both regular-season games against Louisville.

I'm not real high on North Carolina (22-9) this season, but I like the Tar Heels to avoid the upset against Syracuse in this contest by getting the narrow win against the Orange, much like they did in their 78-74 road win over their ACC rivals on February 21.

The ACC Tournament will be played at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Game No. 1 - No. 13 Georgia Tech vs.

KenPom's efficiency model forecasts an 8.3 percent chance to win the ACC crown, trailing No. 1 overall Virginia (38.9), 2-seed Duke (31.4) and 6-seed UNC (10.1).

Allen is second on the team and 12th in the ACC in scoring at 15.5 points per game. The Hurricanes winning points in the last three games came with three seconds or less left in the game. No. 14 Wake Forest, 7 p.m.

A deep run is certainly expected from Florida State who has stunned many throughout the season.

The Tar Heels finished 28-5 that season, losing to Marquette 67-59 in the NCAA Tournament national title game.

Virginia, the number 1 seed, will face the victor of Louisville and Florida State on Thursday at 12 p.m.


While Wilkins was the runaway victor of the Defensive Player of the Year award (42 votes), Virginia Tech guard Devin Wilson (two votes) and U.Va. center Jack Salt (one vote) also drew some attention.

"It doesn't matter if it's the first game of singles or like today when Hannah is the last one on the court and is trying to complete a match 7-0".

Guy had three votes and Jerome had one vote for the league's most improved player award, which went to North Carolina's Luke Maye.

Game 8: Game 4 victor vs. He posted averages of 14.1 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.

The defensive resurgence is one of the more underrated storylines in college basketball, as the Blue Devils have risen from 108th nationally in defensive efficiency on January 6 all the way to 10th as of now.

Top-ranked Virginia (28-2) had their hands full against Florida State when they met on February 7 but they managed to get a solid 59-55 win that day despite being on the road.

After claiming regular-season titles in each of the past two years, the 11-7 Tar Heels finished the current campaign in a four-way tie for third place in the standings but are set as the No. 6 seed in this year's tournament after coming up short on tiebreakers. No. 3 Miami, 9 p.m.

Oklahoma State (18-13, 8-10 Big 12) swept the season series from Kansas, marking the first time that the Jayhawks have been swept in a home-and-home since 2003-04, a span of 103 series. Game 9 victor, 7 p.m. Game 11 victor, 9 p.m.
