Here's how to watch the 2022 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament


March Madness has officially arrived, and it all starts with conference championship week.

Teams across the nation will compete for an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament, which is only secured by winning a conference tournament.

The ACC will be a conference to watch, as only Duke is ranked in the top-25 and not many at-large bids will be handed out. Several other teams are in the mix to make the NCAA Tournament, including Notre Dame, North Carolina, Miami and others.

Who are the best players in the ACC?

Paolo Banchero, Duke: One of the most highly-touted freshmen in the nation, Banchero has lived up to the hype. The 6-foot-10 forward is averaging 17.1 points and 7.7 rebounds, which both lead the Blue Devils, and he could carry Duke to another national title in Coach K’s final season.

Armando Bacot, North Carolina: UNC will be fighting for its NCAA Tournament life in the ACC Tournament, and it’s thanks in large part to Bacot. As a 6-foot-10 junior, Bacot leads the Tar Heels in points (16.6), rebounds (12.5) and blocks (1.7) per game.

Alondes Williams, Wake Forest: Wake Forest is on the bubble and needs a strong conference tournament to secure its bid. The senior guard Williams has done his part, averaging 19.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.3 assists on his way to winning ACC Player of the Year.

Kameron McGusty, Miami: Another senior guard, McGusty has gotten buckets throughout his final season in Coral Gables. He leads the Hurricanes at 17.5 points per game, which is a career-high in five college seasons (three with Miami, two with Oklahoma).

Buddy Boeheim, Syracuse: The coach’s kid has made his dad proud throughout his four years at Syracuse. Boeheim has been a regular starter for three years, and he is averaging a career-best 19.3 points this season. His smooth stroke will have to carry the nine-seeded Orange if they want to get back to the NCAA Tournament.
