  • Virginia Defeats North Carolina for ACC Championship

The Cavaliers will be the top-overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, having lost one game since December 5 - a one-point overtime loss to Virginia Tech - but Bennett's teams have made it to the Elite Eight only once during the program's incredible run over the past five years, and the school is still searching for its first Final Four since 1984, and first-ever national championship game appearance. Once the ACC title was official, the group went on the court to celebrate with their teammates.

Virginia beat the Tar Heels by 12 points back in January.

North Carolina (25-10) got as close as two points in the second half at 48-46, but Guy responded with a jumper from just inside the 3-point arc.

How it happened: It wasn't Virginia's historically-strong defense that propelled them on Saturday night, but rather an offense that caught fire in the second half, making 11 of 23 field goal attempts, and shooting 42 percent overall.

"They're the No. 1 team in the country", North Carolina coach Roy Williams said.

What it means for Virginia: The Cavaliers are who they've been all year long: the best team in the country. I think we can beat any team that's coming in front of us. On defense, the Cavaliers play the stifling Pack Line, which makes it exceedingly hard for opponents to get off uncontested shots. If we try to play the ideal game and play as close as we can possibly play to that, then we'll have a chance to win.

"I have great respect for the family and Ryan, and he's done a heck of a job, only in his second year (at UMBC) in how he's turned it", Bennett said. Redshirt freshman guard De'Andre Hunter was crucial in sparking Virginia's 16 unanswered points with his seven points in the half.

Marshall won't be able to match Marshall's Shockers in terms of talent, but plays a freewheelng style under coach Dan D'Antoni that's hard to prepare for on short notice. Guy is able to guard multiple positions, play man or zone defense, and he is a supreme ball handler, which helps him create his own shot.

"I really hope that we get a favorable first round pick, but I have faith in my team that we can make it", Miles Franklin said.

UVa redshirt freshman De'Andre Hunter says, "It'll be a insane atmosphere, I'm sure. It should be a war".

"You have a sense of pride", junior center Jack Salt said of being the No. 1 seed.

In its quest for a third ACC men's basketball championship, Virginia did not have history on its side Saturday.

UVA enters the tournament at 31-2 overall after winning this past weekend's ACC tournament.

Virginia only won by 12 during that first matchup, but 12 can often feel like 77 against the Cavaliers, who own one of the best defensive efficiencies in the KenPom era (data goes back to 2002).
