ACC Tournament 2012: Bracket And Schedule For Friday's Quarterfinals

The heavyweights hop into the ACC Tournament on Friday, with Duke, North Carolina, Florida State and Virginia all making their debuts. Each received a bye into the quarterfinals of the tournament, with UNC earning the top seed over Duke thanks to a win in the final regular season game of the year.

North Carolina State also won easily, putting away Boston College by 21. No. 7 seed Clemson wasn't so lucky as Virginia Tech secured a five-point win to knock the Tigers out of the tournament.
