No. 1 Virginia takes down UNC for ACC tournament title

NEW YORK (AP) — With no one-and-dones, no sure-fire NBA lottery picks, No. 1 Virginia put together one of the most dominant seasons in the storied history of Atlantic Coast Conference basketball.

Kyle Guy, Devon Hall and the Cavaliers beat No. 11 North Carolina 71-63 in the ACC championship game Saturday night to finish 20-1 against league competition.

Virginia (31-2) set a school record for victories, won the conference tournament for the second time in five seasons under coach Tony Bennett and will most certainly enter the NCAA tournament as the No.1 overall seed when the field of 68 is announced Sunday.

Not bad for a bunch that started the season unranked and picked to finish sixth in the ACC.

“I think we always knew this could be a special team,” guard Ty Jerome said.

And now that the Cavaliers are favorites, Hall said they try to out-underdog the underdogs.

“You fight like you’re not supposed to win or nobody expects you to win,” he explained.
