Clemson………………….. 34 29 – 63
Miami……………………. 26 40 – 66

Recap: For most of the afternoon it looked like the Clemson Tigers were poised to advance to the quarterfinal round of the ACC Tournament. Seemingly in total control the entire contest, Clemson had withstood every Miami charge until the Canes final one. Miami mounted a late push behind sharp shooting Guillermo Diaz as the Hurricanes overtook the Tigers late for a 3-point win. Clemson had a good look at a 3-point shot that would have forced over time but Vernon Hamilton’s shot clanged off the iron as the buzzer sounded, sealing the Tigers fate.

Next Up: #1 Duke, Friday afternoon at noon
Television Coverage: RJ (WFMY Channel 2) & ESPN2
GreensboroSports.com breakdown and prediction: Duke should be too much for a Hurricane team playing on a 24 hour turnaround. J.J. Redick needs to regain the form that earned him 2006 POY honors for the Devils to have an easy time with the Canes. He will and Duke wins this one going away.

Game Two: #5 Florida State vs. #12 Wake Forest

Wake Forest………………. 32 46 – 78
Florida State…………….. 40 26 – 66

Recap: Much like the first game of the afternoon, FSU held Wake Forest at bay for most of the game until a late Deacon run allowed Wake to seize control of the contest. Justin Gray came up big for the Deacs who seem to be hitting their stride. The loss dealt a serious blow to the Seminoles’ NCAA Tournament chances. The Wake Forest win sets up a Tobacco Road free-for-all in Friday’s second quarterfinal.

Next Up: vs. #4 NC State, Friday afternoon at 2:30 pm
Television Coverage: RJ (WFMY Channel 2) & ESPN2
GreensboroSports.com breakdown and prediction: NC State will look to get revenge for Sunday’s blowout loss at Winston-Salem. Wake is playing their best since early in the season. This should be a tight one throughout with the Wolfpack’s depth making the difference down the stretch. State wins a classic.

Game Three: #7 Virginia vs. #10 Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech…………….. 27 29 – 56
Virginia…………………. 32 28 – 60

Recap: Behind 23 points from J.R. Reynolds, Virginia withstood a late Hokie rally to advance to the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament. Virginia continues to build on their surprising season while Virginia Tech’s up and down year comes to an end. A hard fought game by both teams, credit should be given to the scrappy Hokies for hanging in and the Cavaliers for finishing the deal.

Next Up: vs. #2 UNC, Friday night at 7:00 pm
Television Coverage: RJ (WFMY Channel 2) & ESPN2
GreensboroSports.com breakdown and prediction: After an emotional win over their in-state rival, Virginia must now turn their attention to the hottest team in the country, North Carolina. Virginia beat UNC in Charlottesville but that seems like light years ago now. During the Tar Heels current run, Carolina pounded the Cavs by 45 in Chapel Hill a few weeks back. Carolina is playing too well right now for the Wahoos to hang around in this one. North Carolina rides a blowout win into Saturday’s semifinals.

Game Four: #6 Maryland vs. #11 Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech……………… 27 37 – 64
Maryland…………………. 42 40 – 82

Recap: In the least competitive game of the first round, Maryland outclassed Georgia Tech in route to a 82-64 blowout win. The Terps built a 15 point halftime lead and were never really threatened by the youthful Jackets. Nik Canter-Medley, with 20 points, lead the way for Maryland who looks to bloster its NCAA Tournament resume this weekend. Thursday’s impressive win was a good start.

Next Up: vs. #3 Boston College, Friday night at 9:30 pm
Television Coverage: RJ (WFMY Channel 2) & ESPN2
GreensboroSports.com breakdown and prediction: Maryland can make a very strong argument that they deserve to be in the Field of 65 with a win over the Eagles. Boston College has a strong inside game which could pose problems for the Terps. Look for this game to produce the second upset of the Tournament as Maryland posts an important win.
