North Carolina wins ACC Conference Tournament Title

In contrast to yesterday's semifinals game number 1 rated North Carolina did not need last second heroics to beat Clemson 86 to 80 to win the championship game of the ACC Conference Tournament. In the win Tyler Hansbrough thought to be the favorite for National Player of the Year scored 18 points and added 11 rebounds for a double-double. Sophmore guard Wayne Ellington led UNC in scoring with 24 in the win. K.C. Rivers led all scorers with 28 points for Clemson in the loss. The win very likely secures North Carolina a number 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. All teams on the bubble teams were pulling for the North Carolina win because if Clemson would have upset UNC they would have eliminated an at large bid from a team on the bubble.
