Semifinal Saturday is set


Duke. Wake Forest. North Carolina. Boston College.

Semifinal Saturday should be fun tomorrow in Greensboro. It will be Duke v. Wake Forest in the early game and North Carolina v. Boston College in the late game.

Boston College punched their ticket with a decisive win over Maryland. The Eagles returned the blowout favor to the Terps after the Terps demolished Georgia Tech in last night's game. Maryland was squarly on the bubble heading into the ACC Tournament and despite a great showing last night, they likely don't leave Greensboro on any better footing. Craig Smith was outstanding for BC, just like he has been all season long. He was great from all aspects on the floor shooting an efficient 7 for 11 from the field for 21 points. He also had a monster game on the boards with 15 rebounds, as well as 7 assists and 2 steals.

Boston College shot an even 50% from the floor while holding Maryland to just 35% shooting.

Here are your final stat leaders headlined by the aforementioned Craig Smith:

Maryland
Points - James Gist - 14 pts
Rebounds - D.J. Strawberry - 6 rbs
Assists - D.J. Strawberry - 4 ast

Boston College - Craig Smith - 21 pts
Rebounds - Craig Smith - 15 rbs
Assists - Craig Smith & Louis Hinnant both had 7 ast

Make sure you tune into News 14 Carolina tomorrow. Reporter Kenneth Moton will have a special look at "Fan Fest," a wonderful event that takes place right outside the Greensboro Coliseum and offers basketball fans of all ages a place to test their basketball skills.
