Seedings set for ACC Tournament

Duke’s season-ending win against North Carolina on Saturday lifted the Blue Devils into a three-way tie for second place in the ACC. But because of tiebreakers between it, Virginia and Louisville, coach Mike Krzyzewski’s team will be the No. 4 seed at next week’s ACC Tournament in Greensboro.

Virginia will be the second seed while Louisville, which also finished the regular season at 15-5 in the conference, is seeded third.

Florida State (16-4) is the top seed after winning the first regular season ACC title in school history.

On the positive side for the Blue Devils, they did earn a double bye into Thursday’s quarterfinals with NC State as its possible opponent.

Coach Kevin Keatts’ Wolfpack is seeded fifth and will begin its postseason on Wednesday against the winner of a first round matchup between No. 12 Wake Forest and No. 13 Pittsburgh — which could potentially be Danny Manning’s final game as the Deacons’ coach.

North Carolina, which is seeded 14th, will also play on Tuesday, against No. 11 Virginia Tech.

The rest of the seeds include Syracuse at No. 6, Notre Dame at No. 7, Miami at No. 8, Clemson at No. 9 and Boston College at No. 10. Georgia Tech is serving a one-year NCAA postseason ban and is ineligible to participate.
