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.
Virginia's reign at the top nearly came to an end on Thursday at Louisville, but a De'Andre Hunter three pointer at the buzzer preserved the Cavaliers ideal league road record. His 92 blocked shots this season are tied for the fourth-most in a single season at UofL and his 2.97 blocks per game is near UofL single-game leader Gorgui Dieng's top 3.2 average in 2011-12.
It's easy to point first to Durr, something Cardinals coach Jeff Walz made a point of doing while the balloons were still falling inside the Greensboro Coliseum. Carter finished second in voting for the All-Freshman Team with 56 votes, just behind Bagley's unanimous 57, and the Atlanta native also received one vote for Defensive Player of the Year.
The exciting but erratic Miami Hurricanes finally found something they do consistently well: win close games. What is that? I don't know what that is, but that N.C. State stuff.
Durr wasn't dominant in Louisville's trio of wins here.
The ACC Tournament is a 15-team, single-elimination tournament that starts on Tuesday with three opening-round games for the bottom six seeds.
Without hesitating, the junior buried her third triple of the game. "I thought the offensive rebound kick out was probably the dagger and the game-winning shot".
NEW YORK - Mo Wagner scored 14 of his 15 points after a terrible first half and fifth-seeded MI moved within a game of its second straight Big Ten Tournament title.
NC State (21-10) will avoid the upset in this matchup against Boston College, seeing as how they pounded the eagles senseless in their 82-66 home win over BC on February 20. Moe Wagner is one of the best players in our league.
Fuehring finishing was no surprise, either.
Trailing by five, Louisville gained the lead behind Durr and Carter 3-pointers.
"I was so happy when he popped off after that dunk", Wagner said.
Game No. 13 - victor of Game 10 vs. victor of Game 11, 9 p.m.
Louisville outscored the Irish, 20-13, to take control. Fuerhing then hit a layup through contact from Marina Mabrey with 24.9 seconds left and hit the free throw to make it 68-64.
Pittsburgh was the team Colson greeted on his return, posting 12 points and nine rebounds in 21 minutes.
"We've missed him", Larranaga said.
"It's an interesting question", Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said Saturday after the Fighting Irish lost at No. 1 Virginia by five.
Fifth-seeded MI (28-7) became the first team to repeat as Big Ten Tournament champs since Ohio State in 2010 and '11.
We've already seen some buzzer-beaters and memorable finishes across the country as the regular season came to a close, but now that conference tournaments are here, it's time for the real chaos to begin. Myisha Hines-Allen proudly wore it around her neck.
