ACC basketball tournament preview

ACC tournament

When/where: Today-Sunday; Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, N.C.

Outlook: Virginia, led by ACC coach of the year Tony Bennett, has had a storybook season, but this league is top-heavy with talent. The top-seeded Cavaliers (25-6, 16-2) led the league in scoring defense but will be challenged by many, likely including Syracuse (27-4, 14-4), which spent much of the season at No. 1 but faltered down the stretch.

Florida State: The Seminoles (18-12, 9-9) likely need a good ACC tourney run to get into the NCAA Tournament. They face Maryland on Thursday, with Virginia awaiting the winner. FSU and Maryland split their season series, both winning at home. The Seminoles set an ACC record with 16 3-pointers in an 81-65 win over the Terps on Jan. 12.

Miami: The Hurricanes (16-15, 7-11) had an exciting run last season then came back to the pack. They face Virginia Tech today.
