March Madness is officially here. The 68 team NCAA Tournament isn’t here yet, but conference tournaments are upon us. Each year, the Atlantic Coast Conference is one of the most competitive in all of college basketball. It features some of the toughest programs in the nation. Duke, UNC, Virginia, Louisville, and Syracuse are among them. This year, five of the fifteen teams in the ACC rank in the top 16 in all of college basketball.
These games always have a significant impact on NCAA Tournament seedings. Does Duke win the tournament despite the injury to Zion Williamson and enter the Big Dance as a top seed? Can Virginia remain the top team in the conference? Will UNC ride their wave of talent and coaching to another tournament win? Or can Syracuse, Louisville, Florida State, NC State, or a handful of other teams pull off a major upset and stun the world?
To find out, look below where you’ll find all the information you need to know about the ACC Tournament.
