The Canes won the ACC regular season and conference tournament outright.

They are the first team to have that accomplishment besides Duke and North Carolina since 1974.

Sunday's championship game was played at a frenzied pace.

The Canes and Tar Heels combined for 25 three pointers.

Miami had a key contribution from Trey McKinney-Jones who knocked down 6 triples.

The Canes await their conference ranking before starting March madness.

Many national analysts have made a case for UM to be ranked as top seed.
