ACC Tournament 2017: Miami Hurricanes Preview

The No. 10 Cardinals finished the regular season with a 24-7 record and 12-6 mark in conference play, giving them the fourth seed and an automatic berth to the tournament quarterfinals. The Tigers were 24 for 26 from the foul line but didn't have the 3-point shooting to provide balance and answers for Duke's proficient offense. After losing three of its final four games down the stretch and missing out on the No. 4 seed, the Devils were able to build confidence in Brooklyn on Wednesday.

"You saw a game where a lot of guys played well", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.

"I don't know who we are completely, but we have good kids", he said.

Freshmen Jayson Tatum and Frank Jackson each scored 20 and picked up the slack while Kennard was cold.

Clemson Tigers forward Jaron Blossomgame (5) fouls Miami Hurricanes forward Kamari Murphy (21) during the second half at Watsco Center. Sidy Djitte finished what could amount to his final ACC contest with a double-double at 10 points and 10 rebounds. Since scoring 25 points against IN on New Year's Eve, Mitchell has averaged 19.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists and made 41.7 percent of his three point shots (55-of-132).

Bucknell enters NCAA field • Kimbal Mackenzie's 18 points led Bucknell by visiting Lehigh 81-65 in the Patriot League tourney title game.

After scoring just three points in the first half, Kennard came out guns blazing in the second.

AT&T said the problem also affected customers in Georgia, Texas, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee , the Orlando Sentinel reported . If you call 911 for a non-emergency matter, it will not result in a faster response. @FCC public safety staff are investigating.

CU: Under. He's a known commodity, and Syracuse learned first hand what he can do when given space in the first matchup between these teams when Vasiljevic went 6/12 from 3 for all 18 of his points.

That means, barring an upset in the second round, UofL will face No. 5 Duke (23-8, 11-7) in the quarterfinals at 2 p.m. Thursday (ESPN).

"Lets go to NY and play as hard as we can and hopefully, they will let us stick around and play longer", said North Carolina head coach Roy Williams. "He always tells us to hunt our shot".

The Series: Miami vs.

Duke: The Blue Devils lost their only meeting with Louisville this season, falling 78-69 on the road. They've already treated us to two thrilling games during the regular season.

Berry shot 9 of 14 and made all five of his 3-pointers to offset a tougher shooting night for leading scorer and ACC player of the year Justin Jackson. UNC has the assets to provide a very serious challenge to Louisville even on a neutral floor. This is a big win for us, but we have to move on to the next one.

Preview: Coach Rick Pitino's Cardinals have done well against one of the toughest schedules in the country this year - they now sit third in the RPI, one spot above North Carolina.
