Updates with new lead.

While the North Carolina Tar Heels weren't able to capture another Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament title, losing to Virginia, they stand in great shape for Sunday's bracket reveal. Virginia played 21 ACC games this year, they won 20 of them.

The season earned the Musketeers the No. 1 overall seed, but it took them a few seconds to see if they heard right while gathered in an entertainment room in coach Mack's house.

The North Carolina Tar Heels (25-10; 11-7 ACC) reached the finals of the ACC Championship however, couldn't overtake the top-team in the country in the Virginia Cavaliers, and ended up earning a 2-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Virginia continued to add to its season-long list of accolades Sunday when the NCAA Tournament selection committee deemed the Cavaliers the No. 1 overall seed in the 2018 field. Four different players for the Cavaliers hit double figures in scoring, with sophomore guard Kyle Guy leading the way with 16 points. Jerome led UVA with nine points at the break, while Maye posted 15, including a flawless 3-of-3 effort from the three-point line. Contributions from everywhere, a microcosm of this special season.

"Yeah, our a shot goes up and [we] get a defensive rebound", coach Tony Bennett said of his defense-oriented team after beating defending national champion North Carolina in the final at Barclays Center late Saturday. I've grown with Devon over time like that, so I think that's our way. "What he's done this year is the kind of year for a coach that you dream about".

The Cavaliers used more of the same to advance to the ACC tournament championship game for the ninth time. It's odd to see that their points per game totals have only gone up by less than a point from last season to this.

Both the winning team of Virginia Tech (10:57.60) and runner-up Clemson (10:58.83) eclipsed the fastest time in the country to set the new marks on the season. A solo home run in the second inning sparked the momentum that carried the Tar Heels through the rest of the game, as they totaled seven runs just as they had done earlier that afternoon.

Villanova lost in the second round to Wisconsin last year and has advanced past the opening weekend twice in nine years. The limited possessions made each feel more vital, and each made shot meant so much more.

Jalen Brunson had 31 points, six rebounds and four assists and Mikal Bridges added 25 points as Wildcats won the Big East tournament with an overtime win over the Friars in NY.

That team, North Carolina, is a team that Virginia held to 49 points back in early January in a 12-point Cavalier win in Charlottesville, Va. The Tar Heels turned the ball over nine games, but failed to keep pace down the stretch. "I've been freezing my butt off up here".
