Louisville’s 59-57 win over Virginia on Saturday night set the 14-team field for the ACC tournament.
Virginia (No. 1), Duke (2), Notre Dame (3) and Louisville (4) will each receive a double-bye as the top four seeds. The tournament will start on Tuesday but those four teams won’t have to play until Thursday.
Louisville’s win dropped North Carolina to the No. 5 seed before the UNC-Duke game tipped on Saturday night. N.C. State is the No. 7 seed. Both the Wolfpack and Tar Heels will play in Wednesday’s second round at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Louisville, 12-6 in the ACC, has the potential tiebreaker over UNC based on its “best” win, which was Saturday against the Cavaliers. Louisville and UNC split their season series.
N.C. State finished the ACC schedule at 10-8 with a 71-57 win over Syracuse on Saturday, same as Miami, but the Hurricanes’ 65-60 win over the Wolfpack on Jan. 22 serves as the tiebreaker between the two teams.
Syracuse’s season ended Saturday. The Orange will sit out the postseason as part of its punishment for an assortment of NCAA violations between 2001 and 2013.
For the first time, the tournament will begin on a Tuesday, with a pair of games. The championship game has been moved up a day to Saturday and will be played in primetime (8:30 p.m.).
