GREENSBORO, N.C. (WSET) — The big shooters from Virginia finally ran out of steam in the ACC Tournament finals Saturday night in Greensboro.
The Cavaliers (25-7) shot just 33% from the field in a 59-49 loss to Duke. The win gives Duke (26-8) their 22nd ACC title in program history, most of any school in conference history.
Reece Beekman lead UVa with 12 points, while Isaac McKneely added several three-pointers, finishing with 10. But a slow start, with just 17 points scored in the first half, put the Cavaliers too far behind to catch up. Duke's Jeremy Roach led all scorers with 23 points, while Kyle Filipowski added 20.
Both teams, however, will hear their names called tomorrow on "Selection Sunday" for the NCAA Tournament.
