No. 1 seed Canes to face BC-Georgia Tech winner

Miami has earned the No. 1 seed in the 60th Annual Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament, which will be played March 14-17 at the Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum.

Miami, the regular season conference champion, will have a first-round bye, then play Friday, March 15 at Noon in the quarterfinals against the winner of the first round matchup between Boston College and Georgia Tech. With a win, Miami's road to the championship would continue with a semifinal game at 1 p.m. on Saturday, then the championship game will be played at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 17.

This is the first year Miami has earned a top-four seed and a first-round bye.

The Hurricanes are 7-8 overall in the ACC Tournament since joining the league in 2004-05. In 2009-10, 12-seed Miami won a pair of games before being knocked out by No. 1 seeded Duke in the semifinals, Miami's best run in the tournament to date.

In Coach Jim Larranaga's first season with the Canes, No. 6 UM defeated No. 11 Georgia Tech in the first round, then lost to No. 3 Florida State.

Miami will open the tournament with a practice at 5 p.m. on Wednesday in Greensboro Coliseum.
