The show of athleticism on the part of the Seminoles encapsulated a trying night for top-seeded Virginia, which lost in the ACC tournament semifinals, 69-59, to an opponent it had beaten by 13 points to open conference play three months ago. The game tips from Charlotte at 8:30 p.m. ET. The first three included at least one Big 12 team.

FSU (27-6), which will play in Saturday night's tournament championship game against the victor of the Duke-North Carolina game, went on a 13-1 run spurred by eight points from Nichols to take its biggest lead of the night, 62-49 with less than six minutes left.

Well, Florida State is riding high right now after a shocking victory over the Virginia juggernaut, and now it looks like anything is possible for the team. Any team that has racked up 27 wins on the year should be, including going 13-5 in the ACC.

They rank an impressive 14th in the nation in overall efficiency, and their 76 points a game (top-100 ranking) is a score-by-committee-style offense.

Against Virginia, FSU punished them inside. Phil Cofer had 11 points and 7-foot-3 center Christ Koumadje added nine points and nine rebounds for the Seminoles, who'll play the victor of No. 3 North Carolina/No. 5 Duke on Saturday night. The Big 12 has had a team seeded first or second in all but one of its 22 years. Duke started a mere 3-for-10 and missed its first seven triples while the Tar Heels drained nine of their first 16 shot attempts and took control of the pace, but the Blue Devils fought their way back into it with a quick 10-1 run and tied it on a Williamson 3-pointer in the final minute.

The Noles will take on Duke in the ACC Tournament Final Saturday night. They are shooting a proficient 43% from the field but a woeful 31% from beyond the arc (337th). The junior forward added five points and five rebounds in the first half and has helped the Blue Devils maintain a 20-18 edge on the glass.

It's a two-headed star system at Duke.

Cameron Johnson had 23 points for the Tar Heels, but he also missed a stepback 3-pointer for the lead that set up Barrett's missed free throws.

Meanwhile, Tennessee topped Kentucky in a SEC semifinal.

Come Saturday, Florida State will see if they can record another upset. The Jayhawks' loss to Iowa State in the conference tournament final may have ended that possibility.

Virginia had seemed headed for a 10th straight win when it tied the game early in the second half after trailing almost the entire first half, but a massive Seminoles rally convincingly put the game away. The Devils are 11-2 since 1999 in the ACC Tournament championship game, with the victories by an average of 16.4 ppg. As always, good luck betting.
