College basketball: ACC tournament


ACC tournament

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

What to expect: Duke is 18-0 with 6-foot-11 Ryan Kelly in the lineup, and having him back after he missed two months with an injury makes the second-ranked Blue Devils a favorite. Miami is the top-seeded team behind 6-11 Kenny Kadji and All-ACC first-teamer Shane Larkin. Florida State won the tournament title last year but has struggled some this season. The Seminoles are led by Michael Snaer, who has hit winning shots in the final five seconds of four games this season.

Dark horse: It's rare for North Carolina (21-8, 11-5) to be considered a dark horse, but the Tar Heels had some struggles. Still, third-seeded North Carolina has won five in a row and could go on a run to the title.
