We’re down to just four teams in the 2017 ACC Tournament, as #6 North Carolina will take on #14 Duke and #16 Florida State will face off against #22 Notre Dame. Having four ranked teams make up your semifinals is a testament to just how loaded the ACC was this year.
Florida State and Notre Dame took pretty similar paths to get to the semifinals. Along with Louisville, Florida State and Notre Dame were in a three-way tie for second place in the regular season, as all three schools went 12-6 in conference play. Once the tiebreakers were determined, the Seminoles were awarded with the #2 seed and the Fighting Irish with the #3 seed. Both schools received a double bye, so they only had to win one game to advance to the ACC Tournament semifinals.
The Seminoles prevailed over #7 Virginia Tech 74-68 in the quarterfinals, while the Fighting Irish beat #6 Virginia 71-58 in their quarterfinal matchup. This will be the third meting between Florida State and Notre Dame this year, and the series is currently deadlocked at 1-1 with both teams winning at home and losing on the road. The Seminoles beat the Fighting Irish 83-80 on January 18, and Notre Dame got even with an 84-72 victory over Florida State on February 11.
