The semifinals of the ACC Tournament take place at the Barclays center on Friday. In the night game the Duke Blue Devils take on the North Carolina Tar Heels.
This is the third meeting between the two teams this year. Both teams won the game that was played on their home court. The winner of this game will advance to the championship game.
Duke Blue Devils
When Duke steps on the floor for their semifinal match up against the North Carolina they will be playing their third game in three nights. They beat the Clemson Tigers in the first round and then the Louisville Cardinals in the second round.
The Blue Devils had a lot of issues against the Cardinals. With less than 10 minutes left to go in the game Coach K switched to a zone on defense and that is what turned the momentum and they never looked back.
For the Blue Devils to win this game they need all their guys to contribute. Grayson Allen had a terrible game against Clemson and it almost cost the Blue Devils an early exit.
Grayson Allen also needs to keep his head on in this game. He needs to know that North Carolina players are going to try and bait him into doing something stupid, and he can’t let that get to him.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels come into this game having beat Miami in their first game of the tournament by a final of 78-53. They had some problems in the first half with them, but they really took control of the game in the second half and cruised to any easy victory.
One of the things the Tar Heels do have going for them in this game is that they have only played one day in a row compared to the Blue Devils two games.
For the Tar Heels really need to use their fresher legs to their advantage. They really need to push the pace of the game and try to run any chance they get.
If they can run and make this an up tempo game they should be the team moving on to the finals, and one step closer to a number one seed in the NCAA tournament.
