Game 8: Virginia 76, N.C. State 56
Game 10: North Carolina 83, Louisville 70
Game 11: Duke 84, Syracuse 72
Second round, Wednesday
Game 4: N.C. State 59, Clemson 58
Clemson led by 16 at halftime before its offense disappeared. The Tigers (19-13) scored just five points in the final 10 minutes, and now will have to sweat out Selection Sunday. N.C. State (22-10) will be able to breathe a little easier; The Post’s Patrick Stevens slotted the Wolfpack as an 11 seed before Wednesday’s win.
Game 5: Virginia Tech 71, Miami 56
The shorthanded Hokies advance to the quarterfinals, where they’ll face Florida State on Thursday afternoon, with a bit of redemption perhaps in line. Virginia Tech (24-7) narrowly missed out on a double bye in the ACC tournament after losing to the Seminoles in overtime, 73-64, last week. Ty Outlaw finished with 14 points, making 4 of 8 three-pointers, for his fourth consecutive game in double figures. The Hurricanes (14-18) got within seven points with 14:54 left in the second half before Virginia Tech pulled away. Stevens had Virginia Tech as a 5 seed in the NCAA tournament before Wednesday’s action.
Game 6: Louisville 75, Notre Dame 53
Louisville held Notre Dame to 11 percent shooting from long range and outrebounded the Irish 50-38. Jordan Nwora had 24 points and nine rebounds for the Cardinal.
“You can talk about well, you didn’t shoot well, you didn’t make shots — but that’s Louisville,” Brey said. “They really do guard you. The looks we got, there was somebody athletically closing out all of the time.”
Game 7: Syracuse 73, Pittsburgh 59
Jared Wilson-Frame scored a game-high 24 points for the Panthers, but the balanced attack of the Orange proved too much in the second-round game. Buddy Boeheim, son of Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim, scored a team-high 20 points, while Frank Howard and Elijah Hughes added 18 apiece.
First round, Tuesday
Game 1: Miami 79, Wake Forest 71
DJ Vasiljevic scored 21 points and grabbed six rebounds for Miami, which moved on to face fifth-seeded Virginia Tech in Wednesday’s second round. Wake Forest will now face questions about Coach Danny Manning’s future. Manning has a 65-93 in five seasons at Wake Forest.
Game 2: Notre Dame 78, Georgia Tech 71
The inexperienced Fighting Irish broke a seven-game winning streak and advanced to a second-round game against Louisville.
Game 3: Pittsburgh 80, Boston College 70
Pittsburgh had lost 13 in a row before winning its season finale. Now it’s got a two-game winning streak going after Trey McGowens, Xavier Johnson and Jared Wilson-Frame combined to score 65 of the Panthers’ 80 points.
