The 2021 ACC Tournament is heading into the semifinal round on Friday, and we’ve got a pair of tremendous matchups on deck.
In the earlier games on Thursday, top-seeded Virginia survived eighth-seeded Syracuse, with freshman guard Reece Beekman’s buzzer-beating three-pointer providing the margin of victory. The Cavaliers move on to face fourth-seeded Georgia Tech, which outlasted underdog Miami, the No. 13 seed.
Then, in the night session, second-seeded Florida State advanced to the semifinals without even having to play, as Duke had to remove itself from the ACC Tournament due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Finally, UNC, the No. 6 seed, beat third-seeded Virginia Tech, which was coming off a lengthy COVID pause, to punch its ticket to the semis. The Tar Heels will play FSU.
So we’ve got No. 1 vs. No. 4 in one semi, and No. 2 vs. No. 6 in the other on Friday evening in Greensboro.
