“I love the ACC. The ACC has made me a better coach. I just feel that when you are a part of something that’s bigger than you and you’re in a tournament representing that conference, you should try to be at your best. That’s my attitude with it. We don’t talk about the NCAA tournament or anything like that. We just say we want to win this tournament. You could see how happy we are.”
Coach K, after winning the ACC Tourney for the 13th time
Duke faces Notre Dame tonight in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament. The Blue Devils suffered their second loss to Notre Dame (77-73) this season, but dominated the Fighting Irish in the second match up (90-60). This match up should be a good one, especially since the winner will advance to the ACC Tournament Championship game.
