For the first time since 2001, North Carolina and Duke will battle for the ACC Tournament Championship. The ACC's two conference heavyweights and one of the greatest rivalries in sports will add a new chapter Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. The game can be seen on ESPN and on the ACC Network.
North Carolina has made a habit this postseason of falling behind early and then rallying to win a dramatic decision late, and did so again Saturday in the semifinals against Clemson. The Tar Heels, led be freshman Harrison Barnes, downed Clemson in overtime. Barnes had 40 points in one of the best freshman tournament performance ever.
Duke beat a tired Virginia Tech team in the semifinals. The two teams split the regular season series with the home team winning each time. The winner will have a decent shot at a top seed in the tournament when the brackets are announced tomorrow night.
