There's plenty of NCAA basketball live streaming and televised with championship week this weekend. In the ACC Tournament 2013 bracket schedule, a showdown for a spot in the finals arrives featuring NC State vs. Miami with the game to be shown on live stream online and TV via the ESPN networks.
According to Fox Sports Florida on March 16, game time is set for 1 p.m. EST between these two ACC foes. Miami enters with a 25-6 record as they look to move into the conference championship round on Sunday. However, 24-9 NC State is looking to make some noise as well, and has a bit of revenge on their mind heading into the contest. Coach Mark Gottfried said of today's game:
"We played them once at home and they beat us so first of all, we remember that. They have proven that from start to finish that they are the best in the league."
Miami is currently ranked #9 in the country overall and boasts a 15-3 record in the ACC. They played NC State and escaped with a 1 point victory, 79-78 back on Feb. 2, so this could be a tough challenge for the Hurricanes heading into Selection Sunday and the "Big Dance." They'll look for scoring contributions from Shane Larkin (13.9ppg) and Kenny Kadji (13.6ppg) today.
North Carolina State has lost 7 games in the conference, but has an impressive .494 field goal percentage on the season, good for 5th best in the nation. They're also 12th overall in scoring with 77.7 points a game this season. The Wolfpack are led by C.J. Leslie with 15.0 points a game, followed by Richard Howell with 12.8 a game.
Current Bracketology projections from Joe Lunardi have Miami as a #2 overall seed in the West region, and NC State as a #8 seed in the Midwest. Of course those seeds and positions could change come Selection Sunday and depending on the outcome of today's semifinals game and tomorrow's championship.
