Monday Morning Review: ACC Tournament

Saturday we took on a tough and motivated State team (they were on the tourney bubble) without John Henson. It was extremely close throughout, but we won by two on a Kendall Marshall driving bank shot that many screamed was a charge. The game was full of questionable calls on both sides, so I'm just glad we got out alive. Following our game, FSU took on Duke and beat the Devils in a tight game, setting up a Noles v. Tar Heels ACC Tournament final.

Still John Henson-less, we got ourselves in a hole (up to 16 at one point) pretty quickly. We dug ourselves out of it at the end of the game, but lost by 3 after Hairston's long shot bounced off the rim. Florida State played great and is a really dangerous team. I'm ready to get John Henson back.

I think he COULD have played this weekend, but since our spot in the Tourney was pretty secure, everyone felt it was best to rest the wrist.

Last night they announced the NCAA tournament seedings. Despite our loss, we still got a 1 seed in the Midwest bracket. I'm really grateful for the Midwest as the South and West are really tough brackets. We play the winner of Lamar/Vermont on Friday at 4 p.m. Let's Go Heels!!
