The ACC Tournament returns to North Carolina and will begin on Tuesday at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte.

Wake Forest, seeded 13th, will play at noon on Tuesday in the first round against No. 12 Miami.

No. 8-seeded N.C. State will play on Wednesday in the second round at noon against No. 9 Clemson.

North Carolina, which swept Duke in the regular-season with a win on Saturday night in Chapel Hill, is the No. 2 seed and earned the double bye to Thursday’s quarterfinals. The Tar Heels shared the regular-season title with Virginia, which earned the No. 1 seed for the tournament.

Duke is the No. 3 seed after it played without star Zion Williamson on Saturday night.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski said after the Blue Devils’ loss to the Tar Heels that Williamson could play on Thursday and will return to full contact practices this week.

The final team getting the double bye was No. 4 seeded Florida State.
