ACC Basketball Tournament 2011 Bracket, Schedule: Duke and North Carolina Face Rematches In Semifinals

Two rounds of the 2011 ACC Tournament are in the books, and the conference is yet again putting on quite the show. Saturday features two semifinal match-ups with plenty of intrigue:

UNC vs. Clemson, 1 p.m., ACC Network/ESPN
Duke vs. Virginia Tech, 3 p.m., ACC Network/ESPN

While it will be a surprise if Sunday's championship game does not feature a rematch of Duke and North Carolina, don't count out Clemson and Virginia Tech just yet. The Hokies beat Duke in one of the conference's marquee games this season 64-60 a few weeks ago, and North Carolina  escaped Clemson with a two point win a month ago. 

Duke guard Nolan Smith is questionable for tomorrow's game according to Coach Mike Krzyzewski. The ACC Player of the Year injured a toe on his left foot in the win over Maryland and will most likely be a game-time decision. North Carolina won a thrilling quarterfinal game over Miami on Friday, overcoming a 19-point deficit to win on a buzzer-beating layup by Tyler Zeller.
