Fresh off an 18-point home loss against North Carolina to end the regular season, the Duke Blue Devils enter the ACC Tournament looking to defend their crown and possibly earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. 

The Tar Heels earned the top seed thanks to that victory against their rivals. Roy Williams has his team playing their best basketball of the season at just the right time. 

Stop me if you have heard this before: North Carolina and Duke are the two favorites to win the tournament.
