Ja'Quan Newton, who beat North Carolina nine days ago in Chapel Hill with a 40-foot buzzer beater, scored 17 points for third-seeded Miami (22-9).

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

UNC is 4-1 against Virginia in the ACC tournament final, with the only loss coming in the 1976 championship game. "Only in his second year and how he's turned it, and like I said, he's a coach's son, as I am".

No. 15 ARIZONA 78, UCLA 67:Deandre Ayton scored seven of his 32 points in overtime and grabbed 14 rebounds for Arizona (26-7) in the Pac-12 tournament semifinals in Las Vegas.

You guys be sure and tell Coach Rob I said that. "It took a while to get used to wearing a brace, but I felt fine from tip-off". But more than anything, I just want to take it all in. Williams still was able to get two three-pointers, but he was being guarded heavily by the Virginia guards all game.

Pinson scored 10 points in 3 1/2 minutes of the second half, including a corner 3 to make it 69-63 with 4:25 left.

Senior guard Joel Berry II says, "For you to turnover the ball, and have as many turnovers as we did, that plays right into their hands, especially knowing that if you have a turnover, you have to go down and play defense for 30 seconds, because they run their offense, and run it and run it, until they get a good shot". "There's definitely a mental part of it where you sort of feel safe with it on". "I think that's something that we have to do, so we don't have a really big margin for error". The field will be revealed tonight.

Creighton athletic director Bruce Rasmussen, the chair of the Division I men's basketball committee, said on the TBS studio show announcing the NCAA Tournament brackets that the Fighting Irish were the last team left out of the field. "We've got to be ready to go when it comes to that". They handled a North Carolina team that was playing its fourth game in as many nights, but offered a good fight before fading near the end. "But we had those opportunities", he continued.

A series of funding rounds had valued Dropbox at $10 billion, but investment bankers were doubtful about matching that valuation. While it claims to have 500 million users in 180 countries, it posted only 11 million paying clients at the end of past year .

"We talked about it before the season this year".

Both teams fought through adversity to reach the title game. Virginia opens play Friday against UMBC in Charlotte, North Carolina.

However, UVA's defense and clutch shooting were simply too strong down the stretch, and that led to the Cavaliers' third ACC title in school history (and second in the past four years).

"He started out slow, but he shot it well", Boeheim said.

Coach John Calipari's latest crop of Kentucky freshmen just needed a little longer to figure things out.

"We have some bigger goals in front of us", Williams said.

The Carolina players are looking forward to the rematch.

"It's playing Virginia on the last day. We're just trying to do this for each other". D'Antoni is a Marshall alumnus, and the brother of Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni, who was at the game since his National Basketball Association team was in town to play the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. The Blue Devils lost to the Tar Heels in the ACC Tournament semifinals on Friday night.
