ACC proves it was overrated

All season the ACC was widely considered the best league in the nation. It got nine teams into the NCAA tournament. Well, eight of them are gone now. So what does that tell you?

White: 'It was a great win for our program' (0:50)

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Virginia ended its 2016-17 with the most severe and arid of all scoring droughts. Give full credit to Florida for a total 65-39 dismantling of UVA, and puzzle along with me over the spectacle of a Cavalier team that actually had an excellent (though now long forgotten) January on offense. Apparently that was a blip.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia was held below 1.00 point per possession in seven of its final 11 games. The Cavaliers went 5-6 in that stretch.

Adam Reisinger ESPN.com 

The 39 points scored by Virginia matched the fewest by a major conference team in the NCAA Tournament since 2000 (West Virginia in 2015 and Marquette in 2013).

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

The door is now open for Florida in the East region after blowing out Virginia, 65-39. Gators will be favored against Wisconsin in the Sweet 16, and then will likely face either Duke or Baylor in the Elite Eight. Florida's defense is on another level right now, and the Gators are going to be a threat to keep winning. The loss of John Egbunu is in the past. Mike White has them hitting on all cylinders.
