Virginia put a little bit of a scare into top-seeded Duke, but in the end the Blue Devils are headed into a semi-final devoid of either the #2, #3, #4, #5 or #6 seeded team.

In a day of upsets, Duke was the only higher seed that managed to win leaving the tally for wins by higher seeded teams at an amazingly low three (Duke twice, and Georgia Tech beating North Carolina) for the first two days of the tournament.

Jon “Crazy Face” Scheyer scored seven of his 15 points during the decisive run that helped the top-seeded Blue Devils pull away in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament.

Kyle Singler had 18 points and 11 rebounds and Nolan Smith also had 15 points while Scheyer, the third member of Duke's "Big Three," keyed the 11-0 run that sent them into Saturday's semifinal against Miami.

The performances of Singler and Scheyer virtually assured the two Blue Devils staring spots on the coveted ACC Tournament All-Mouth Wide Open Team.

Jeff Jones had 15 points and Mike Scott added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the ninth-seeded Cavaliers (15-16). They got as close as 46-44 in the final 7 minutes, but went scoreless for nearly 6 minutes and were denied their first semifinal berth since 1995.
