  • Inside look at how Virginia completely frustrates its foes

This is the third meeting this season for Duke and North Carolina.

UNC ranks No. 3 in the ACC, behind both Virginia and Duke.

Despite some some fun upsets from Boston College, a noteworthy 21-point comeback by Notre Dame against Virginia Tech, and a major snowstorm in Brooklyn, the ACC semifinals come down to three of the top four seeds in the conference.

He's looking forward to North Carolina-Duke, Part III too. The game was a lot closer than what the final scores will show. It seemed as though the Fighting Irish gained a huge following. Experts around the country had them on both sides of the bubble entering Thursday, and a decisive loss to Duke didn't help. Duke put an end to their run in the ACC Tournament and more than likely killed an NCAA Tournament bid. Duke-UNC is arguably the best rivalry in college basketball.

Theo Pinson knew that he and his fellow starters would eventually get around to putting the ball in the basket Thursday. It's been noted before that Berry and Allen are actually friends. "They're going to have long possessions. When the ball gets into the middle like that, it's pretty hard to stop them because it breaks down our zone", Duval said of North Carolina.

Woods' pivotal basket was the first points he's scored since the MI game back on November 29. This time, the Tar Heels forced 18 turnovers, had 24 assists and relied on five players scoring in double figures to pull out the victory. Not that beating Duke ever is. Maye started to get offensive boards early while all three guards knocked down shots from deep.

As for my prediction, I have to side with North Carolina.

The Tar Heels even played 6-foot-11 Sterling Manley and 6-10 Brandon Huffman at the same time, hoping the two forwards could use their size to contain Bagley. The Freshman was altering shots, grabbing rebounds on both ends and scoring easily.

Bagley finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds, but he also committed 4 turnovers. The next 5:56.6 passed uneventfully, but with Miami leading 31-29, Cameron Johnson was fouled by Lonnie Walker IV on a three-quarters court heave with 0.4 seconds left in the half. Tonight, we'll see the two least common opponents in the championship game.

Duke comes into this game with a 26-6 record overall. Pinson dished seven assists, hauled in four boards, came up with three steals and had the play of the night.

Whenever you lose late in the season, there are implications. Berry is now averaging 17.3 points per game along with 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists. But the Tar Heels went cold and got sloppy and second-seeded Duke went on a 13-0 run, drawing within three on Gray Trent Jr.'s 3 with 50 seconds left. They were No. 51 in KenPom ratings before playing North Carolina.

UNC also received important contributions from freshmen forwards Garrison Brooks and Sterling Manley, who added 10 and six points, respectively, off the bench in a game their team led for all but a minute and 35 seconds. His ability to pass from the high-post combined with the fact that the shooting ability of Joel Berry II, Kenny Williams and Cam Johnson on the perimeter makes them a nightmare offensively, one that can not be overwhelmed by a front line the size of Duke's. "We're just playing better as a team". This time, they come in with Virginia ranked first in the country and Carolina ranked 12th.

CBS Sports' Jerry Palm has the Orange third on his list of teams heading to the First Four and is the most notable expert to include Syracuse.
