Game 11: No. 3 Miami vs.

The exciting but erratic Miami Hurricanes finally found something they do consistently well: win close games.

The first step was this year's ACC regular-season championship, which the Cavaliers got done by finishing 17-1 in conference play - and becoming the first team in league history to hit that 17-win mark in the process.

"We started unranked and to finish the regular season at that point is a big accomplishment", says sophomore guard Ty Jerome.

Despite missing four games due to injury, Bagley remained the best player in the conference and one of the best in the country. UNC LOOKS TO REGROUPSpeaking of North Carolina, the Tar Heels (22-9) sniffed the No. 2 seed, which would have earned a double-round bye into the quarterfinals, but settled for the No. 6 spot by losing at Duke in the regular-season finale.

Duke will enter this year's tournament as the defending champion. Larranaga, in his 46th year of coaching, said he has never experienced such a run. "They got some huge offensive rebounds", she said. "Our guys have developed a lot of confidence in themselves and their teammates".

"It's not the most important thing in the world to me, there's no question about that", Williams said.

Guy was held scoreless for the first time this season in Saturday's game against the Irish.

Proposals To Arm Teachers Causes Political Rifts In Florida Legislature
There's nothing at the professional development meetings that tell teachers how to feel after they kill someone. Hopefully, even the president recognizes what Zeif is going through as something he should never have to do.

Three other ACC teams are in the Top 25.

The Heels, in turn, won the NCAA tournament.

The only reason we're up here is because Syracuse said it could deliver the NY market for the ACC.

Mabrey, with two fouls to give, sent Carter to the line once again and the Cardinals were up four with 18 seconds to play.

That includes freshman guard Lonnie Walker IV, projected as a possible National Basketball Association lottery pick in June.

Not Pittsburgh, obviously, which is even worse than the winless Boston College team that delivered "going out to eat" as the fondest memory of Dennis Clifford's career two years ago in Washington.

The tourney kicks off with three games, headlined by 11th-seeded Syracuse against 14th-seeded Wake Forest at 7 p.m. Syracuse (19-12) is on the NCAA Tournament bubble and hopes to tap into the kind of fan turnout it used to get when it played in the Big East Tournament at the Garden.

"We've been through it so much", Walker said. "He is back and with him we have a chance, but we need to get going in Brooklyn". We had some opportunities that we squandered but our execution wasn't quite as good but I think that's due to their defense. That suggests the Cardiac Canes are likely to remain unpredictable - and risky. The top seed in the bracket, the Cavaliers play in Thursday's first quarterfinal game at noon, against the victor of Wednesay's Louisville-Florida State second-round game.

"We have another goal", junior forward Admiral Schofield said after the Georgia game.
