The entire right side of the NCAA Tournament bracket is made up of ACC teams, which means the conference will have two teams in the Final Four and one in the National Championship game. In the East region, No. 1 North Carolina and No. 6 Notre Dame will play to determine who will be one of the conference's Final Four representatives and play the winner of Virginia-Syracuse.
North Carolina got here with little resistance. The Tar Heels have a dominant inside game, and after slow starts against both Florida Gulf Coast and Providence, they took off to blow out the Eagles and Friars in the second half. Against Indiana in the Sweet Sixteen, UNC was as unbeatable as it has been all season. The Tar Heels have struggled to hit threes, but they were hitting from beyond the arc against the Hoosiers, scoring 101 points. Even in a solid performance, Indiana had no hope.
Notre Dame's path has been different. The Irish have finished every game with some sort of drama. They went down by 12 at halftime to Michigan before coming back to win. Then they tore Cinderella's dreams to shreds, beating No. 14-seed Stephen F. Austin on a last-second tip-in.
The Irish saved their best trick for last. Down one with 19 seconds left, they got a steal to take the lead on a lay-up. Then they got another steal as Wisconsin attempted a game-tying three-pointer.
These two teams meet for the third time this year. Notre Dame won the first meeting, 80-76, at home, while North Carolina crushed the Tar Heels, 78-47, in the ACC Tournament.
