ACC Tournament 2011 Bracket Update: UNC Narrowly Avoids Miami Upset, Heads To Semis

UNC trailed Miami for 39 minutes and 59.9 seconds in its 2011 ACC Tournament quarterfinal game on Friday, but the Tar Heels led when it mattered: at the final horn.

After being down 14 points in the second half, UNC rallied to tie the game in the final minute. Following a Miami turnover, Carolina had a final possession, during which they found Tyler Zeller wide open under the basket for a layup that rolled through the hoop as time expired. The final score: UNC 61, Miami 59.

North Carolina moves on to play the winner of Boston College vs. Clemson in Saturday's semifinal game at 1 p.m. ET.
