Duke and North Carolina will have Thursday off in the ACC Tournament, N.C. State will not.
Virginia's 61-58 overtime win over Maryland on Sunday night clinched the No. 4 seed, and the final opening-round bye, for the Cavaliers.
N.C. State, which finished 11-7 in the ACC and in fifth place, will play on Thursday against 12th-seeded Virginia Tech. The other three games on Thursday in Greensboro will be: Boston College-Georgia Tech, Maryland-Wake Forest and Florida State-Clemson.
Both Virginia and N.C. State finished 11-7 in the ACC but Virginia won the tiebreaker based on its 58-55 win over N.C. State at home on Jan. 29.
Miami, the No. 1 seed, won its first ACC regular-season title and it was the first time since the Hurricanes joined the league before the 2004-2005 season that they have earned an opening-round bye. Both Duke and UNC have earned a bye eight times in nine years since the ACC went to a multi-game format on Thursday.
As the No. 2 seed, Duke will play the 7 p.m. game on Friday against the Maryland-Wake Forest winner. UNC, the No. 3 seed, will play the late game on Friday against the FSU-Clemson winner. Duke and UNC would meet in the semifinals on Saturday.
N.C. State had control of its seeding fate but lost at Florida State on Saturday. The Wolfpack, the preseason pick to win the ACC, could have backed into a bye with a Maryland win on Sunday. The Terps led by 17 points in the first half at Virginia but fell in overtime.
It's the 14th time in 21 years the Wolfpack has to play on Thursday in the ACC tournament, the most of any conference team.
