ACC Tournament 2013 bracket: Miami advances, awaits North Carolina-Maryland winner

Durand Scott launched Miami into its first conference championship game in school history.


The Miami Hurricanes advanced to the 2013 ACC Tournament Championship Game with an 81-71 victory over the N.C. State Wolfpack on Saturday. Miami will face the winner of the nightcap between the North Carolina Tar Heels and Maryland Terrapins in the final on Sunday.

Durand Scott scored 32 points to lead the Hurricanes, who will make their first-ever conference title game appearance. Miami went 14 years in the Big East without ever making it to the final round, and didn't advance that far in its first eight seasons in the ACC.

Maryland looks for its second-straight victory over a higher seed against North Carolina. On Friday, the Terrapins knocked off No. 2 Duke, 83-74. If it can get past the Tar Heels and take on Miami in the championship game, Maryland will have faced the top three seeds in the ACC.

Here is the updated schedule for Saturday:

No. 1 Miami 81, No. 5 N.C. State 71

No. 3 North Carolina vs. No. 4 Maryland, 3:45 p.m. ET
