Bracket Revealed for 2021 ACC Tournament



The full bracket has been revealed for the 2021 ACC Tournament, and much like the rest of the 2020-21 season, it’s an unusual one, with Duke playing on the tournament’s first day and Georgia Tech making an improbable late-season run to a double bye.

Pitt will open the 2021 ACC Tournament, as the 12th-seeded Panthers have drawn No. 13 Miami in the first round and will play in the first game of the tournament on Tuesday, with a 2 p.m. tip off against the Hurricanes on ACC Network.

The Blue Devils will follow as the No. 10 seed against No. 15 Boston College, with Notre Dame and Wake Forest rounding out the first day’s action.

The Pitt-Miami winner will face Clemson, which earned the No. 5 seed with its win over Pitt on Saturday. North Carolina, Louisville, Syracuse and NC State will also join the tournament on Wednesday.

Georgia Tech will face the winner of the Clemson-Miami/Pitt game in the quarterfinals on Thursday, with regular season champs Virginia, Florida State and Virginia Tech also earning double byes.

The semifinals will be held on Friday night and the 2021 ACC champion will be crowned on Saturday night. All of the tournament’s games will be played in Greensboro, North Carolina at Greensboro Coliseum.
