UNC is defending its national championship after falling to top-ranked Virginia in the ACC final Saturday night.

"After the season we'll care about that", senior forward Isaiah Wilkins said of the ACC dominance.

"We had a stretch (where) we lost some games and we had to go to Louisville, which was obviously a tough place to play (against) a very good basketball team", Boeheim said. "But we'll learn from this and move on".

No. 2 Duke will play No. 15 Iona on Thursday in Pittsburgh at 2:45 p.m.

The Tar Heels beat the Blue Devils on Friday night to advance to the ACC Championship Game and are 2-1 against them this season. "Your team's kind of tested a little bit, got your backs against the wall, we're scuffling a little bit, and down 0-2 on the road to a great team, I just thought that was a great response by our club".

Guy's impact on the game often surpasses the box score, which makes him a ideal leader in Virginia's team-first mantra.

That was until they faced off with North Carolina on Friday night.

No. 11 WICHITA STATE 89, TEMPLE 81:Landry Shamet scored 24 points, Rashard Kelly had 16 and Wichita State (25-6) beat Temple in the quarterfinals of the American Athletic Conference tournament.

"I told our players that everyone can play if they're in there", Bennett said in a teleconference Sunday after the pairings were released.

North Carolina leads the ACC in virtually every offensive category thanks to its fast pace of play-points per game, field goals made and attempted, total rebounds and offensive rebounds-and it is still the best team on the boards in the conference despite not starting anybody taller than 6-foot-8.

"I'm excited for these guys for the opportunity". They're a good matchup for UNC, which also likes to get up and down the court, just with better players.

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. "This is a testament to our hard work and ability to buy in as a team".

Roy Williams is making his 28th NCAA Tournament appearance as a head coach, tied for third-most in NCAA history with Bobby Knight.

"They want to act like they've been there before even if they've never been there before", Tigers coach Bruce Pearl said, adding the old-hat response was guard Mustapha Heron's idea. "I mean, I really believe that". "They are a really special group".

Meanwhile, after a shaky start, Wilkins ignited a defense that limited North Carolina to 38.5 percent shooting in the second half.

No teams from the District of Columbia made the field of 68, and the only school representing Maryland is UMBC.

The No. 1 seed in the South Region, Virginia is in a bracket that includes Arizona, Kentucky, Cincinnati and Tennessee.

Radford University will also represent the Commonwealth in the tournament. Those outcomes give North Carolina a shot to force its way into consideration for a No. 1 seed if it upsets top-seeded Virginia in Saturday's ACC title game.

Shavar Newkirk had 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the fourth-seeded Hawks (16-16), who drubbed Rhode Island 78-48 last week.

"He was locked up in NIT committee meetings", Ryan said in an e-mail about when he talked to his father.
