What Was His Name? Notre Dame Edition

Luke Zeller played at Notre Dame from 2005-09. His college career was more befitting a middle child than the oldest in a trio of Zeller boys who played high-major college basketball and eventually in the NBA. Luke was a McDonald’s All American. Youngest brother Cody was named second-team All American at Indiana. Middle brother Tyler won a national title and ACC Player of the Year at North Carolina. (Tar Heel Depot)

Post matchups key as Tar Heels take on Irish for ACC title

This is a game that will probably come down to UNC’s bigs, as it did the first time around. Carolina didn’t shoot well back in that one-point January loss, but they rebounded over half of their misses. Still, Kennedy Meeks and Brice Johnson were a combined 6-of-19 from the field in 44 minutes and had nine rebounds between them. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Tar Heels’ run is fitting this year

Yet here is UNC on the cusp of a championship game that will be played one month and one week since Dean Smith died. The Tar Heels of now look more like the Tar Heels of old, which means anything is possible when a title is at stake. UNC’s Kennedy Meeks –– a big man who’s not quite as big after losing nearly 50 pounds over the past season –– says he doesn’t know much about karma, but thinks something not of this world could be in the works.

ACC Tournament Preview: (5) North Carolina vs. (3) Notre Dame

After the entire season built to a Virgina-Duke ACC Tournament Championship, it will instead be North Carolina facing off against Notre Dame for the conference title. UNC knocked off Virginia in stunning fashion Friday night, and Notre Dame held onto a big first half lead to eliminate Duke, setting the table for a Saturday night showdown in the Greensboro Coliseum.

Against UNC, Notre Dame gets another shot at an in-state blueblood

North Carolina won't face its biggest rival, but there's still an element of redemption involved. Most importantly, a championship is at stake. Third-seeded Notre Dame, which beat UNC in Chapel Hill during the regular season, defeated Duke on Friday night to advance to an ACC tournament final matchup with the fifth-seeded Tar Heels. (Fayetteville Observer)

Carolina To Face Notre Dame For ACC Title

Fifth-seeded North Carolina and third-seeded Notre Dame will meet on Saturday night in Greensboro with the 2015 ACC title on the line. Carolina is making a record 33rd appearance in an ACC final and is 93-43 in ACC Tournament games overall. A Tar Heel win vs. Notre Dame would tie Duke (94-43) for most ACC Tournament victories in conference history. (GoHeels.com)

Preview: UNC vs. Notre Dame, ACC Final

UNC and Notre Dame meet on Saturday night for the championship game of the ACC Tournament. UNC enters the game playing its best basketball of the season. The Tar Heels beat Boston College, Louisville and Virginia to reach the final. Notre Dame handled Miami on Thursday and upset Duke on Friday. Here's a look at the advantages and concerns for each team heading into the rematch. (Carolina Blue)

Preview & Prediction: #5 UNC vs #3 Notre Dame

The ACC Tournament so far has been about revenge games. UNC has exacted revenge for prior losses at Louisville and to Virginia at home. Duke paid NC State back from an early season loss and Notre Dame in turn paid Duke back for a 30 point Blue Devil win. UNC dropped a 71-70 decision to Notre Dame in Chapel Hill. Prediction: UNC 81, Notre Dame 72 (Tar Heel Blog)

Notre Dame-North Carolina an improbable ACC title matchup

The ACC can brag about having two teams deserving of No. 1 seeds when the NCAA tournament bracket is revealed this Sunday. The Virginia Cavaliers and Duke Blue Devils, however, will not be playing for the league’s tournament title on Saturday. That privilege belongs to the North Carolina Tar Heels, thanks to their 71-67 win over the Cavaliers, and Notre Dame Fighting Irish, who beat the Blue Devils 74-64 on Friday. (ESPN.com)

Justin Jackson, from Humble, Tex., leads UNC to ACC title game

It would be wrong to call Justin Jackson quiet. He’s certainly not the most vocal member of the UNC basketball team, but it’s hard to blame him when he lives with Joel Berry and part-time cheerleader Theo Pinson. But even after a team and career-high 22 points in UNC’s 71-67 upset of top-seeded Virginia in the semifinal of the ACC Tournament, there wasn’t a trace of gloating from the freshman. (Daily Tar Heel)

Tale of the Tape: UNC vs Notre Dame

It has been over two months since these two teams play and in some ways the numbers are the same but also not. Notre Dame continues to be a top notch offensive team with gaudy efficiency numbers and astronomical shooting percentages. The defense for the Irish continues to be a problem though holding Duke to an offensive efficiency below 100 would seem to indicate otherwise. (Tar Heel Blog)

Previewing Notre Dame

No. 5 seed North Carolina and No. 3 seed Notre Dame will square off for the ACC Tournament title on Saturday night. Tip-off is set for 8:30 p.m. at the Greensboro Coliseum and will be televised by ESPN and the ACC Network. Earlier this season, the Fighting Irish escaped Chapel Hill with a 71-70 win over the Tar Heels on Jan. 5, 2015. (Inside Carolina)

Brice Johnson leaps into crowd, crushes Duke AD

CONSPIRACY THEORY: Brice Johnson knew exactly what he was doing here. He could have just stopped with one foot on the table, but caught sight of Duke AD Kevin White and decided he ought to keep going. NON-CONSPIRACY THEORY: This was an accident, the second jump was just to dissipate momentum, and I'm glad everyone's okay. (SB Nation)
