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

Today's schedule: Wake Forest vs. Miami, 11 a.m.; North Carolina vs. Maryland, 3 p.m.; Boston College vs. Virginia Tech, 6; N.C. State vs. Clemson, 8

TV: FSN will carry the 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. games today and Friday. It will air the semifinals at 1 and 3:30 p.m. Saturday and the final at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Favorite: Duke (24-5) is the top-seeded team but ranked No. 9 nationally, one notch below the second-seeded Seminoles (25-4). The Blue Devils have 11 wins against top-50 teams.

Dark horse: North Carolina (18-10) has had an uncharacteristic season, but the Tar Heels remain dangerous as evidenced by their recent victory over Duke. They have four other top-50 wins.

What FSU must do: Play its game. The Seminoles, who play at 6 p.m. Friday against the winner of today's Boston College-Virginia Tech game, have won eight straight thanks to balanced scoring and the best 3-point shooting in the conference.
