  • Virginia Defeats North Carolina for ACC Championship

They also avenged a loss to the Tar Heels in the 2016 championship game and gave coach Tony Bennett his second crown in three title-game appearances.

But while scoring points against Virginia is often about as easy as beating The Rock in an arm-wrestling match, North Carolina's recent defensive play should leave room for optimism.

Villanova, Kansas and Xavier joined Virginia as the top seeds. After winning a school record 31 games, setting the ACC record with 17 conference wins, coasting to the ACC regular season title, and winning the ACC Tournament championship on Saturday night, the top-ranked Cavaliers will also enter as the tournament's top overall seed. "That's just how it is", Bennett told reporters Sunday.

Those opponents appear in line with the committee rewarding the Cavaliers, who won the ACC regular season title by 4 games, then went 3-0 in Brooklyn, topping North Carolina for the league's tournament title. That could be a risky formula in a one-and-done tournament setting. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and you can then watch the game live on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.

But after that, Virginia faces possible matchups with fourth-seeded Arizona or fifth-seeded Kentucky, the most daunting teams on those seed lines in the tournament. With a win, it would advance to play whichever team emerges from the 8-9 matchup between Creighton and Kansas State. "They don't really have the type of players that are like household names or anything like that, but they just play really good together". He said it can be hard to transition from playing familiar conference foes for three months to preparing for an unknown opponent.

But it's as well a good opportunity, what you want is to show that you have the quality and the strength, and you can only show that when it's hard .

Virginia Tech, one of the two teams to defeat Virginia this season, earned one of the 36 at-large bids and one of the ACC's nine total bids, the most by a single conference this year.

In another true ensemble effort, tournament MVP Kyle Guy had 16 points, Hall added 15 and Ty Jerome had 12 points and six assists. The Hokies (21-11) will play as the East Region's No. 8 seed against No. 9 Alabama Thursday in Pittsburgh. Villanova was a No. 1 previous year and has consistently been a high seed under coach Jay Wright.

No teams from the District of Columbia made the field of 68, and the only school representing Maryland is No. 16 UMBC (24-10). The Cavaliers' 3-point shooting carried them to the ACC title on Saturday.

They have a legit Power-5 player in Jarius Lyles, who hit the game-winner against UVM. Orlando Vandross, Virginia's director of recruiting and player development, coached under Odom at UNC-Charlotte. "He is a coach's son as I am and he's been around a lot".
