Round 3.

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Miami vs North Carolina Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

What can be said about this game that hasn’t been said 100 times? It’s Carolina vs Duke for a chance to play Virginia in the ACC Tournament Championship tomorrow night. The two teams finished the regular season series tied 1-1. Each team won in their respective building. Now one will have to do it on a neutral court.

The Tar Heels will need to come out sharper than they did in last night’s game against Miami. Hopefully that is well and truly out of their system after turning the ship around and soundly dispatching the Hurricanes to advance to the semifinals.

UNC got lackluster performances out of Joel Berry II and Luke Maye in their quarterfinal game, but Theo Pinson had a career night on his way to 25 points. Hopefully the other two can turn it around in order to give Pinson some help when they take on the Blue Devils.

As always, we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup of the happenings. Until then...

Go Heels!

Go to hell, Duke. Forever.
