Florida State upsets top-seeded UVA to reach ACC tourney final

Duke Look Like NCAA Championship Contenders in Zion Williamson's Return Zion Williamson shoe explodes: Duke's Zion Williamson thanks Nike for making him stronger shoes

The victor of UNC-Duke will face the victor of Friday's contest between Virginia and Florida State in Saturday's ACC Championship game.

Cassius Winston scored 18 points, reserve Foster Loyer provided a lift with a career-high 14, and Michigan State (26-6) gave Coach Tom Izzo his 600th career win by defeating Ohio State (19-14) in a Big Ten tournament quarterfinal game at Chicago.

UNC: The Tar Heels had claimed their first regular-season sweep of the Blue Devils since 2009, a year that ended with Roy Williams claiming his second NCAA championship.

Zion Williamson of the Duke Blue Devils falls as his shoe breaks apart during a game against the North Carolina Tar Heels on February 20, 2019 in Durham, North Carolina. "It was kind of one of those things". We've played more games and [have] more experience.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte jinx continued for the guys from Charlottesville.

Virginia will wait for the 2019 NCAA Tournament selection on Sunday at 6 p.m. on CBS.

Summer Zervos' lawsuit against President Donald Trump can proceed, court rules
Zervos has said Trump forcibly kissed and groped her during a December 2007 encounter at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. Mr Trump has also faced a defamation claim by adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit over a hush money agreement.

In the win over the Tar Heels, Duke's Zion Williamson led the charge with 31 points and 11 rebounds. The fact is, if Tre Jones finds himself staring down 6-foot-10 Mfiondu Kabengele or even monstrous 7-foot-4 Christ Koumadje in the post, the help defense provided by Duke's big men will be instrumental in preventing the Seminoles from dominating the paint and the offensive glass.

RJ Barrett added 17 points and nine rebounds and the Blue Devils (29-5) took control after halftime to add to their conference-record total with their 21st tournament title. While Nichols was heating up, the Cavaliers couldn't score, going almost 6½ minutes without a field goal.

"You know we don't shoot like that", said White, who missed all six attempts from 3-point range.

But he's staying positive about the future. He said the bench once again came through for FSU, helping the team avoid letting mistakes crush confidence. "So this isn't the end all, be all by any means". And because they can really play defense, they will have a shot at anybody, and we had a very hard time winning tonight.

U.Va., which won last season's ACC tournament title in Brooklyn, N.Y., cut FSU's advantage to 65-59 with 54 seconds left when Jay Huff made 1 of 2 free throws, but the Cavaliers missed their last four shots from the floor.

The Duke North Carolina rivalry is filled with legendary performances from legendary players but sometimes you need those performances from the players you least expect them from and Duke got that tonight. They have shaken off some early season injuries and will be a tough out in the NCAA Tournament.

The play came unraveled this time, as No. 3-seed and No. 4-ranked Duke held on for a 74-73 victory to advance to Saturday's championship game against Florida State. They both looked the part, too - down to Duke's final punch that finally secured a ticket to the tournament final. And they won't have to play the likes of Virginia and Duke (in front of 15,000 of its own fans) in back-to-back games any time soon.
