The ACC semifinals are set, and in Saturday’s opening game in Greensboro, North Carolina, the top-seeded Virginia Cavaliers are set to take on the upset-minded Pittsburgh Panthers.
Virginia emerged from their unfortunate loss at the end of the regular season with a solid, 13-point destruction of Florida State on Friday afternoon, and that sets the stage for this game. The Cavaliers play at a glacial pace (as is their trademark), but they are an incredibly efficient team on both ends of the floor, and senior Joe Harris is one of the best players in the country that you may have not heard a lot from this season.
However, nothing will come easy for the Cavaliers, as the Pitt Panthers played out of their minds for the better part of 40 minutes in knocking off UNC on Friday, and they are a talented group. Pittsburgh’s conference work was a bit disappointing with just an 11-7 regular season mark, but they’ve looked like a different team under the bright lights of Greensboro, and they’ll have every chance to rise up and advance to Sunday’s final.
