The Tar Heels (26-3, 12-3) finished off the season with a 79-71 victory over the Duke Blue Devils (25-5, 11-4) at the Dean Smith Center Sunday afternoon.

Tyler Hansbrough finished Senior Day with 17 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks leading the #2 ranked Tar Heels to their second straight ACC regular season title.  They will secure the #1 seed in the ACC tournament and play Friday, March 13 at noon.  The Tar Heels should be playing the winner of the Miami/Virginia Tech game on Thursday, March 12.

The Tar Heels should head into the ACC Tourney ranked #1 in the AP & Coaches polls after #1 Connecticut lost to #3 Pittsburgh Saturday night.

All we had to say is we told you so.

So, who do you predict to win the ACC Tourney?
