Last week, the ACC held its annual spring meetings at Amelia Island, with both football and basketball entrenched in their respective off-seasons. There was a lot to talk about, considering that two schools, Clemson and Florida State are actively suing the league, as they are seeking an exit from the conference, which overshadows the league not getting the respect they want on the playing field, after FSU was left out of the College Football Playoff, and schools like Wake Forest and Pittsburgh were left out of the NCAA Tournament.

The Final Four is set, with UConn, Alabama, NC State, and Purdue all making their way to Phoenix for the 2024 Final Four.

Once you get into the second round of the NCAA Tournament, you know you’re going to get tested, and that’s exactly what happened to Carolina tonight, even if they won 85-69. Tom Izz’s bunch came more and threw the first punch, building an early 17-7 lead, as they would lead by as many as 12 in the first half. In his TV interview on CBS, Hubert Davis made it known that he couldn’t talk basketball to his team until they started competing and matching the Spartans’ physicality. Like they have all season long, the Tar Heels answered the call, going on a 17-0 run, that would extend to a 23-3 run to end the half, to turn the double-digit deficit, into a 40-31 halftime lead. That lead wouldn’t completely disappear, but Sparty came out of the half on fire, making it a 48-46 game at the under-16 timeout of the second half, but that was as close as it would get, once Carolina reestablished control, they would close the game out, the way you have to this time of the year.

The day started with Michigan State running away from a Mississippi State team that came in the favorite, while the second game featured the No. 1 seed in the region, North Carolina, using the final 12 […]
