No. 12 Florida State Stuns No. 2 Virginia in ACC Tournament Semifinals

The rematch is Saturday night, with the 2019 ACC Tournament championship on the line.

No. 1 overall seed? But that's up for the NCAA Committee to decide. Williamson scored a whopping 29 points to lead the team to victory. "Just got to use it, and continue to improve".

The favorites to win it all? He literally played himself into exhaustion and had to receive fluids after the game.

Nonetheless, this FSU team is really good and they proved it on Friday night when they handed Virginia their just 3rd loss of the season. "It just came down to little things".

"He's a very talented player", said Luke Maye, who had 14 points and 13 rebounds and put UNC up by four with a nice drive on Williamson with 2:46 left.

The Blue Devils also had an enormous home-crowd advantage.

Duke University's Zion Williamson is finally back on the court following a month-long injury spurred by a burst Nike shoe. Krzyzewski later said the slap in the face was just what his team needed.

The year before the heated duel in Atlanta, Ferry was the Duke star, scoring 19 points in the championship game in being named MVP.

Duke Look Like NCAA Championship Contenders in Zion Williamson's Return

Friday night, No. 12 Florida State gave us our first big stunner of the weekend, as they just took down No. 2 Virginia in the ACC Tournament semifinals. That, too, tied a season high allowed by FSU.

Bennett has coached some fantastic teams at Virginia, but his lack of NCAA Tournament success is becoming a larger and larger narrative of his career.

The latest Bracketology update before Selection Sunday has Duke replacing North Carolina for a No. 1 seed.

This tournament was all about the 6-foot-7, 285-pound Williamson, whose February 20 knee sprain - that included the image of his left foot tearing through the side of his shoe as he fell to the court - had threatened to derail the title potential of a team that has spent a national-best seven weeks at No. 1 in the AP Top 25. Finding weak points in this team is no easy task. "We've been through a lot more games that have been intense - against Purdue, LSU - so to see us close out the game today, I would say that is the biggest difference".

The Chicago native finished 6 of 8 from the floor, added five rebounds and three assists and grabbed two steals. Williamson, Barrett, Jones and Cam Reddish had all of seven games of college experience under their belts back then. "They were created to be stronger and more supportive for the 6'7", 284-pound star.

The Cavaliers boast wins over North Carolina, Virginia Tech (twice), Louisville (twice), Maryland and Wisconsin.

Christ Koumadje of the Florida State Seminoles. "Never. Maybe Villanova previous year but they scored inside as well".

The Blue Devils' will now focus their attention on Florida State, in an ACC tournament matchup taking place tonight at 8:30 pm ET.
