Tough ending, but those were two very good teams. A reminder that, every time Carolina has won the National Championship in the Roy Williams era, Carolina has lost in the semifinal of the ACC Tournament.
Cameron Johnson's 23 points tonight were the most scored by a @UNC_Basketball player in an ACC Tournament game against Duke since Rick Fox had 25 against the Blue Devils in the 1991 championship game in Charlotte.
Zion Williamson just willed his team to victory against North Carolina 74-73. Duke moves on to face Florida St. in the ACC Championship #Duke #NorthCarolina #NCAAB #ACCTourney #ACC2019 #Basketball #College #RankUpSports #WeBreatheSports
In the @accmbb tournament in Charlotte, defending champion @UVAMensHoops fell short of a second straight appearance in the championship game. But the second-ranked 'Hoos know they still have much to play for. My report from the Spectrum Center: https://t.co/XE4xL5j5Iy
@DonLaSol Lol exactly. My theory is we weren’t gonna win 16 games in a row (was on a 8 game winning streak tonight, if we would’ve won the acc championship and the ncaa championship we would’ve ended up winning 16 games in a row to finish the season). So it’s good to get a L out the way
Theo Pinson just said it best, “keep your head up Tar Heels fans, last time we lost to Duke in the ACC tournament, what happened oh yeah that’s right we won a national championship! Keep your heads held high!!” 💙🐏🏀 #TarHeelNation
@unc8689@leonstav Our go-to excuse after losing a tourney game is “we don’t care about the ACC tournament,” is lame. The fans do. I do. I’d prefer a national championship but to downplay the significance of the conference tourney is almost sacrilegious IMO.
