John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

North Carolina's multi-decade streak of home-court perfection against Clemson remains intact. In a series dating to 1926, the Tigers have never won a game in Chapel Hill. Clemson is now 0-59 at UNC after tonight's 87-79 loss to the Tar Heels at the Dean Dome. One of the weirdest and most incredible streaks in sports continues.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Clemson hasn't won a game in Chapel Hill since 1926 (yes, you're reading that correctly), but the Tigers are making things interesting tonight. After trailing by as many as 18, Brad Brownell's team has stormed back and made this a two-possession game with less than eight minutes remaining.

Referee who turned back considers retirement

Referee Ted Valentine told The Athletic that he is considering retirement because he is taking so much heat over turning his back on North Carolina's Joel Berry II.

With Xavier falling at Providence, there is room for a fourth No. 1 seed alongside Duke, Villanova and Michigan State. Virginia is certainly a candidate after stifling North Carolina. The winner of tonight's West Virginia-Oklahoma game also merits consideration. Interestingly, WVU owns a head-to-head victory over UVa.

Like what Nigel Johnson has brought to the table for Virginia today. Made a 3, getting after it defensively. Is a little more dynamic (and unpredictable) than most of the guys on Virginia.

Simple scouting report keys for Virginia to pull off the win at home vs North Carolina. Keep the Tar Heels off the glass and keep them on defense. Both limit easy baskets. Pivotal ACC match up now on ESPN!
