Well folks this picture tells it all. After the game UNC coach Roy Williams spoke to the media and said. This is one of the greatest feelings I have ever had winning the ACC regular Season crown. I am especially proud of Joel Berry for taking the team on his shoulders and brining this game home to victory and I could not be any prouder than I am right now.  

Coach K also talked to the Media about Duke's performance and it was not one of their best performances this season. Coach K told the Media " It was not our best night's out their. I know we were on the road and it is a hostile environment and we did.t play well down the stretch and couldn't do anything when it counted. We have the ACC tournament coming up and maybe we can play UNC one more time and get some revenge.

The ACC tournament starts this week. Here's my take, Both Duke and North Carolina had excellent seasons. North Carolina could be considered as the odds on Favorite to win the ACC tournament. But I will say this, the ACC is loaded this time around and the ACC championship is going to be a hard one to pick this time. Why you ask it's because we have about six or seven teams that could take the Tournament Championship. Let's think about for just one second. We have Duke and North Carolina the obvious favorites. But then we have teams like Louisville they are a threat along with Notre Dame. And can you Believe I am going to say watch out for Florida State and the Miami Hurricanes. Those teams I have mentioned, They all have a legitimate clam to the ACC championship. I am not going to give you my pick Stay tuned until Monday And you will get my pick for the ACC championship.

P.S you will also get my picks for these conferences as well.

I will see you tomorrow when you get my picks. Bye Everybody.
