North Carolina’s win at Duke on Saturday night gives the Tar Heels the No. 1 seed in the ACC tournament next week in Washington.
The Tar Heels, which went 14-4 in league play, will get one of four double-byes and won’t have to play until Thursday at the Verizon Center.
N.C. State, the No. 12 seed, and Wake Forest, the No. 13 seed, will open the tournament on Tuesday at noon. The winner of that game will advance to Wednesday’s second round to face fifth-seeded Duke.
Duke will have to win four games in four days to win its first ACC title since 2011. No team has ever won four games in one ACC tournament.
Never miss a local story.
Notre Dame, which won the ACC title last March in Greensboro, is the No. 4 seed and Miami and Virginia are the other two teams with a double-bye.
Tiebreakers are based on head-to-head results and “group” record (among the three or more teams tied).
Miami and Virginia’s seeds were determined by the outcome of Saturday’s game between the Cavaliers and Louisville, which is sitting out the tournament under a self-imposed postseason ban.
