ACC tournament brackets for 2014 got started on Wednesday (March 12). Within the 2014 ACC Tournament brackets, three games took place during the first round. In the afternoon game, it looked like No. 15 seeded Virginia Tech might be able to pull off an upset when they took a 32-31 lead into halftime against the No. 10 seeded Miami Hurricanes. Miami pulled it out 57-53, though, and advances to the second round of the tournament.

In the other two first round games, No. 12 Wake Forest beat No. 13 Notre Dame and No. 11 Georgia Tech beat No. 14 Boston College. The three winners make it into the final 12 teams and will play in the second round on Thursday (March 13). Those games will begin at 12 p.m. ET, with Maryland vs. Florida State. It will then continue through the day with Pittsburgh vs. Wake Forest at 2 p.m. ET, North Carolina State vs. Miami at 7 p.m. ET, and then Clemson vs. Georgia Tech at 9 p.m. ET. The winners from these games advance to the quarterfinals on Friday (March 14).

In the 2014 ACC Tournament brackets, the Virginia Cavaliers have the No. 1 seed after going 16-2 in conference play. The other teams that got the double bye are No. 2 Syracuse, No. 3 Duke, and No. 4 North Carolina. The four schools won't know their opponents until Thursday, when the second round games all get played out. The top four teams as well as Pittsburgh are likely getting invited to the 2014 NCAA Tournament no matter what, but schools like North Carolina State, Clemson, and Florida State need to each win a few games left on the schedule in order to stand a chance at the big invite.

Fans looking to watch the games can tune in all day Thursday and Friday to ESPN and the ACC Network to view them.
