Virginia men's hoops selected as number one overall seed in NCAA Tournament

Duke vs UNC Live Stream: How to Watch ACC Semifinal

They have truly been clicking on all cylinders. The Tar Heel state produces more Division I talent each year than most every other state in the country. They held Miami and Duke to under 70 which is shocking in itself. Their only league setback, at home to Virginia Tech, was by a point in overtime. There's something to be said about that. "I wanted to run a little faster, but the meet as a whole was definitely my best athletic performance since high school".

Virginia entered Saturday leading the NCAA and ACC in scoring defense. Still, the numbers suggest the Tar Heels are just as good as the schools who have more National Basketball Association talent. Theo Pinson made the cardinal error of trying to force a pass inside on the Pack Line; the ball caromed off two defenders before landing in the arms of a third. He's been stepping up and doing it all. The senior forward did not have the game he was expecting to.

Only once in the last four years, though, has Virginia made it to the Elite Eight. The four games bit goes without saying, but the perfection was all about his respect for Tony Bennett and Virginia. Bennett coached teams are always known for their defenses. "It's playing Virginia on the last day".

Bone scored 17 of his points in the first half, hitting 7 of 7 from the field and all three of his 3-point attempts.

Duke saw its pitchers give up the most runs in this final contest, with Wiercioch, Huey and Peyton St. George all allowing two runs each. Virginia slows it way down.

The meeting between North Carolina and Virginia was the teams' second this season, with the Cavaliers winning January 6, 61-49, at John Paul Jones Arena behind a defensive gem. The Cavaliers are so disciplined. The Cavaliers know when to take the jumper or attack the hoop.

North Carolina had another inning that devastated the Blue Devils-this time coming later on in the game.

We'll start with Duke, who is playing as well as anyone in the country right now.

Considering the average quality of shot UNC was getting, the team's 10-for-25 mark from three-point range was what kept them afloat all the way through.

Conspiracy theory about the biggest NCAA Tournament snubs
Nebraska played some tough non-conference opponents and came oh so close to knocking off the Kansas Jayhawks in December. The Tigers earned a No. 4 seed after playing all season without top post players Danjel Purifoy and Austin Wiley.

The victor of that game will face either fifth-seeded Clemson or 12th-seeded New Mexico State in the second round on Sunday. Other teams who will play in Wichita are Seton Hall, North Carolina State, San Diego State, Houston, Michigan and Montana.

The Tar Heels, on the other hand, are at their best when they get offensive rebounds. That's thanks to the floor-spacing frontcourt of Pitt transfer Cameron Johnson and former walk-on Luke Maye. North Carolina vs Virginia live stream is on WatchESPN. The rest of the players get back into transition.

"Now of course you turn your attention to what's next and prepare as well as you can and get as much film", Bennett said.

The problem is that they just couldn't figure out how to make it work defensively, which is not an uncommon problem to have when dealing with freshmen.

Maryland in 2002 was the most recent team to lose only one ACC game.

"They get up on you and then they put pressure on you thinking you have to come down, and you're thinking you have to get a quick shot to try to get that lead back", said UNC point guard Joel Berry. The young big guys are contributing.

Blake Dodge capped her Atlantic Coast Conference winter season career in style at the ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Lunardi has UNC matched up with Villanova as the No. 1 seed over Xavier.

Never before has the NCAA tournament selection committee awarded a No. 1 seed to a team with more than seven losses.

Top-seeded Cincinnati (29-4) advances to a championship-game matchup with Houston. The Shockers play No. 21 Houston Saturday in the semifinals. Virginia was more than likely a lock to be the number one overall seed. Clemson coach Brad Brownell said before the Tigers played Virginia on Friday that the Cavaliers "just do everything really well".
