The victor of UNC-Duke will face the victor of Friday's contest between Virginia and Florida State in Saturday's ACC Championship game.

North Carolina won the first two games and Duke won the third.

UNC never got off the planned shot Friday, which Maye, again, was supposed to take. I think we went up one, but Florida State played well. "We set the screen, they played it and they read it". Coby White missed a three and a desperation tip was no good, giving Duke a one-point win in a thriller. "Even at times when we did guard him, he just made some shots in our face".

"Yeah, I was trying to drive". Trailing 73-72 with 32 seconds remaining, Williamson missed a contested shot in the post but beat everyone off the floor with a second jump and tipped in his own miss.

Hamilton all season has preached that the Seminoles "win by committee", and that they're greater than the sum of their individual parts. A lot of people said that Louisville would be lucky to make the tournament this year because of the state of the program, and here we are.

North Carolina is now projected to be a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament after its 74-73 loss to Duke on Friday, according to ESPN bracket analyst Joe Lunardi's projections early Saturday.

It seemed like he could score whenever he got the ball, as he finished with 31 points and 11 rebounds.

"He put on his Superman jersey", UNC coach Roy Williams said. Just as it did Thursday in its win against Virginia Tech, FSU's bench played a huge role, outscoring U.Va.'s reserves 28-8. "It just came down to little things".

Williamson helped cover for Cam Reddish, who was minus-11 for the game with five turnovers. Duke enters the locker room shooting 48.6 percent compared to 47.1 percent from the Tar Heels.

"He adds a different dimension to their team", UNC's Cam Johnson said of Williamson's return.

"Would I love to see them? Never. Maybe Villanova a year ago but they scored inside as well". "Every possession matters, every mistake is magnified", he said. "Instead of [R.J. Barrett and Williamson] giving energy to a teammate, they were getting energy from a teammate". "And if you don't shoot it well, it makes it really hard for us". They have shaken off some early season injuries and will be a tough out in the NCAA Tournament.

Playing U.Va.'s guards for 94 feet defensively Friday at times, and constantly guarding tough in the half-court, FSU used its length to finish with a 35-20 rebounding advantage. "I give credit to their defense".

"We just have to do better on offense".

Florida State only forced eight turnovers, but it made things hard for the Cavaliers to get into a rhythm all night long. Antawn Jamison's 22 points and 18 rebounds gave Guthridge and the Tar Heels a title, and Jamison was the MVP.

"They covered it pretty well". And when the shot left my hand, I could have sworn it went down. It's at least formidable enough for this to be a serious discussion, given that seeding isn't done in a vacuum.
