Semifinal Saturday

Catching up with the ACC Tourney, Duke and Clemson easily advanced to meet in the second semifinal of the day later in Charlotte.

Just in case you haven’t been watching basketball this year, it looks like Tyler Hansbrough might be the best player in the country. Grabbing a rebound off of a horrific attempt to win the game for the Tar Heels, Hansbrough knocked down an open jump shot to win it for UNC and then celebrated like someone who had a few too many Amp energy drinks. Tyler finished with 26 points and 9 rebounds in a sloppy semi at Charlotte Bobcats Arena. An absolutely crushing loss for Virginia Tech who had the game in control for a good 36 minutes.

 UNC gets to face Duke in the final of the ACC Tournament on Sunday…wait a second, they lost? Really? Getting every 50-50 call in the final four minutes of its semifinal matchup against Clemson, Duke couldn’t make a jump shot against a spry team of Tigers. Even though their fan base forgot to travel to Charlotte for the tournament, Clemson got an excellent team performance that puts them up against the number one team in the conference and country. Oh yeah, and this team hasn’t won against UNC in the state of North Carolina in about 50 years.

 Good luck.
