RTC Live: ACC Finals – Duke vs. Georgia TechPosted by rtmsf on March 14th, 2010
The 2010 ACC Tournament has been, well, odd. Who would have believed that 7th seeded Georgia Tech, 11th seeded NC State, and 12th seeded Miami would have joined top seeded Duke in the semifinals? Guess what? It happened. All that aside, things may balance out in the end as Duke will be a heavy favorite over a fatigued Georgia Tech team in today’s championship game. Becoming only the third ACC team to play four games in four days (see NC State in 1997 and 2007, both losses to Duke), Georgia Tech will attempt to become the first to bring home a championship. Also, Paul Hewitt is attempting to become the first African-American coach to win the ACC Tournament. No easy task against a Duke team that has become accustomed to playing on championship Sunday, as they have won eight of the last eleven titles. Join us here at Rush the Court to see if they can it make nine of twelve, or if Georgia Tech can add their fourth ACC crown at Duke’s expense.
