The ACC Tournament Semifinal Round continues on Saturday afternoon with the matchup between the Florida State Seminoles and the Duke Blue Devils. Florida State earned a first round bye and the No. 4 seed in the ACC Tournament, playing its first game in the second round against the Miami Hurricanes late Friday night. The Noles took an early lead and locked down Miami with their suffocating defense to pick up the 82-71 victory and advance.
The top-seeded Duke Blue Devils had a much tougher go of it, grinding out a 60-56 win over the Virginia Tech Hokies in their first game of the tournament. The Hokies battled the Blue Devils tough before Duke was able to pick up a late bucket and seal the victory. The No. 1 seed will move on to face the No. 4 seed on Saturday for the deciding rubber match between FSU and Duke, who split their regular season series, for the chance to move to the tournament finals.
Location: Philips Arena, Atlanta, GA
Game Date/Time: Saturday, 3 p.m. ET
