ACC Tournament Schedule 2012: Virginia Vs. NC State Game Time, TV Coverage And More

The Virginia Cavaliers' fourth place ACC regular season finish was good enough to net them a bye in the first round of the ACC Tournament, but they won't come up against poor opposition as a result of that bye. Instead, they'll be up against a team desperate for a win. The NC State Wolfpack knows that they remain a bubble team with a loss to UVA, but that they will play themselves into the big dance with a victory.

NC State is coming off of a dominant 78-57 victory over a poor Boston College team on Thursday. Virginia defeated the Wolfpack in Raleigh in their first meeting, but only won that game by one point. That came just two days after NCSU lost a rivalry game against North Carolina, and they're likely to be a much more confident bunch for this rematch.

Game Date/Time: Friday, March 9, 2:00 p.m. ET

Venue: Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia

TV: ESPN2

Online: ESPN3
