From  Duke and North Carolina went shot-for-shot in the final of the ACC women’s basketball tournament on Sunday at Greensboro Coliseum.

The top-seeded Blue Devils emerged from the slugfest with their seventh conference title, staving off a fierce challenge by the No. 6 Tar Heels and pouring on the offense over the final 10 minutes to earn an 81-66 victory before an announced crowd of 9,890.

In the end, the confetti and balloons rained down on the court in celebration of Duke’s second consecutive tournament title.

Carrying on in the winner’s tradition, players pulled T-shirts over their jerseys and turned their caps backward, reveling in the culmination of a successful ACC and regular season.
