FSU tops Virginia, moves to ACC hoops final

17 March 2019

"These two guys have an wonderful will to win", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said of Williamson and Barrett, "and it makes us coaches look a lot better". FSU's 27 victories are the most since 1972, when the Seminoles reached the Final Four and played UCLA in the national championship game.

No. 4 seed Florida State will take on No. 3 Duke on Saturday, March 16 in Charlotte, N.C.in the ACC tournament championship game. He bounced right back up in traffic for the kind of play that only he can make with his athleticism and size. The Seminoles are one of the hottest teams in the ACC, only losing once in their last 14 games.

"The way we got back into the game wasn't strategy at all", Jones said. "He does a lot of things they don't have without him, so it kind of changes the way they play offensively".

"Yeah, I was trying to drive".

"When the shot left my hand, I could have swore it went down", Johnson said.

Before tripping, it appeared that Little might be open inside.

Meanwhile, Tennessee topped Kentucky in a SEC semifinal. However, they won the game in all the key phases.

It seemed like he could score whenever he got the ball, as he finished with 31 points and 11 rebounds. What was once UNC's Dean Smith vs Duke's Vic Bubas and later Mike Krzyzewski has been replaced by Roy Williams vs Krzyzewski. It's a given Duke will be ready for this game. "So we have to play a full 40 plus minutes, just like we saw today when we went into overtime".

The Tar Heels had 62 inside points at Duke but got outscored inside 50-38 Friday.

"You don't want to lose to a team three times in a row", Williamson said.

Grand Prize: if you have the highest-scoring bracket in the NBC Sports Washington Bracket Challenge, you will win a 3-night trip for four people to Universal Resort, including round trip airfare, lodging, admission to Universal Studios and tickets to Blue Man Group. "I think the maturity of the team this year is really helping us out with that".

Coaches like to say the league's schedule - every opponent home and away - prepares its teams for the NCAA grind, and it proved previous year with Kansas reaching the Final Four and K-State and Tech getting to the Elite Eight.

He said his team took the wrong offensive approach.

"We grow from this experience", Bennett said. "And if you don't shoot it well, it makes it really hard for us". The freshman phenom converted just two of his first five attempts from the field, but picked up the slack late and leads Duke with 16 points and six rebounds at the break.

North Carolina led by 13 in the first half and 71-67 with less than 3 minutes left but couldn't hold on. "Just credit to our seniors for keeping us together".

"They covered it pretty well". "Good looking shot, and Nas tried to tip in, and it didn't go".

Puts the Seminoles on the inside track for at least a No. 3 seed in next week's NCAA tournament, which would increase their chances of spending the first weekend of the tournament in Jacksonville, Fla., by far the closest site to Tallahassee.
