Luke DeCock: Despite Virginia's excellence, still more than enough on the line for Duke, UNC

Luke DeCock: Despite Virginia's excellence, still more than enough on the line for Duke, UNC Thanks for nothing, Virginia. If it weren't for the Cavaliers and their infuriating persistent and consistent excellence, the No. 1 seed in the ACC tournament and the regular-season title would be indisputably on the line Saturday. Alas, such matters are only at hand between North Carolina and Duke if Virginia loses to Louisville earlier Saturday, which would deliver the top seed to the Duke-Carolina winner in Chapel Hill, N.C. Unlikely. But possible.

Dwayne Sutton had 14 points for Louisville (20-13). The Cardinals shot just 10 of 34 from 3-point range.

The Cardinals beat North Carolina by 19 on Jan. 12 in Chapel Hill — Roy Williams' worst home loss ever as Tar Heels coach — using their size and length to disrupt shooters and control the glass.

North Carolina had no trouble in the rubber match between the teams.

The Tar Heels got things going early and built a 45-35 lead at the half behind Johnson and White. The versatile Maye scored from down low and stepped out beyond the arc to display his silky smooth jumper.

The lead hovered around 10 for most of the second half until the Tar Heels got their transition game going with eight straight points on run outs — including four by Kenny Williams — to stretch the lead to 18 with 6:24 left.

Nwora scores 24, Louisville tops Notre Dame 75-53 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said even when it felt like his team got an open shot Wednesday night against Louisville, it really wasn't. Louisville's length and athleticism was just too bothersome. ''You can talk about well, you didn't shoot well, you didn't make shots - but that's Louisville,'' Brey said. ''They really do guard you. The looks we got, there was somebody athletically closing out all of the time.

The 1982– 83 North Carolina State Wolfpack men's basketball team represented North Carolina State University. The Wolfpack were a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference ( ACC ).

No. 3 North Carolina beats Louisville 83-70 in ACC quarters

John Clay: In the NCAA Tournament, is there much difference between a No. 1 seed and a No. 2?.
Is Kentucky a No. 1 seed? Is Kentucky a No. 2 seed? Less than two weeks before the NCAA Tournament's Selection Sunday, that seemed to be the popular question concerning the basketball Wildcats heading into Tuesday night's game at Ole Miss. Despite UK's 71-52 loss at Tennessee last Saturday, ESPN's Joe Lunardi had the Cats as the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region, to be played in Kansas City, with North Carolina as the No. 2 seed. But CBS Sports' Jerry Palm had UK as the No. 2 seed in the South Region, to be played in Louisville, with Duke as the No. 1.
