ACC Tournament 2012 Bracket Reactions: Boston College Fans Look Forward To Championship Game

The 2012 ACC Tournament is nearly at an end. On Sunday, the conference will crown a champion and lock down a slot in the NCAA Tournament. Although the Boston College Eagles missed out on their own personal Cinderella story, the championship game between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Florida St. Seminole should still be an exciting one.

And of course, plenty of Boston area and BC fans will be watching, in the interest of good basketball. Brian Favat at Boston College blog BC Interruption is doing his best to look on the bright side.

If there's a silver lining to Boston College's early exit in the ACC Tournament and the end of the season, it's that we can now all enjoy the best week of basketball without a dog in the fight. It starts this afternoon, where the 23-9 Florida State Seminoles look to win their first ACC basketball championship as they face the 29-4 and top-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels.

Should Florida State pull the upset, the Seminoles would become just the second non-Duke, non-Carolina conference title champ in well over a decade.

It should be an exciting one, but it seems like we can all agree that at least Duke will not be involved.

ACC Tournament 2012: Boston College Defeated By N.C. State, 78-57

Scott Wood had his way early and often, scoring 22 points to lead the No. 5 seeded N.C. State Wolfpack past the No. 12 seeded Boston College Eagles, 78-57, in the opening round of the 2012 ACC Tournament on Thursday afternoon at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA.

Ryan Anderson's double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds paced the Eagles, who were limited to 38.6 percent shooting. Lonnie Jackson added 10 points, Dennis Clifford scored six and Matt Humphrey finished with six points for Boston College. Patrick Heckmann, playing in his third game back from a bout with mono, had four points and seven rebounds.

Lorenzo Brown scored 12, C.J. Leslie had 11 points and 11 rebounds and DeShawn Painter had 10 points off the bench for the Wolfpack, who shot 43.3 percent. N.C. State out-rebounded BC, 39-31, and had 11 turnovers while BC had 19.

Unable to find any sense of rhythm, the Eagles missed their first seven shots and turned the ball over five times in the first 7:26 of the opening half, all while the Wolfpack scored 14 unanswered to open the game. Humphrey's layup at 12:34 was BC's first field goal, but BC could never recover from the poor start despite multiple chances to close the gap.

BC had the ball with a chance to trim the N.C. State lead to six or five points as the half closed, but a turnover from Jordan Daniels (eight points) led to a three-point play and another Eagles turnover allowed the Wolfpack to make a desperation three at the buzzer. BC was able to come within six points of N.C. State in the second half, but no closer.

Boston College finished the season at 9-22 overall and were last in the ACC.

Boston College Vs. N.C. State Halftime Score: Eagles Down 37-24

Boston College recovered from a horrible start to bring itself back into the game, but the Eagles still trail the N.C. State Wolfpack by thirteen, 37-24, at halftime in the opening round of the 2012 ACC Tournament at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA.

The Eagles were held scoreless until the 12:34 mark of the opening half when Matt Humphrey (four points) made a layup. During the Eagles' scoreless stretch, the Wolfpack scored 14 unanswered to open the game. BC was able to crawl back into the game at the end of the half and had the ball with a chance to cut their deficit to six or five points, but a steal and a foul resulted in a Wolfpack three-point play. Another Eagles giveaway led to an N.C. State three at the buzzer.

Ryan Anderson led the Eagles with seven points and collected four boards while Patrick Heckmann, playing in his third game back from a bout with mono, had four points and seven rebounds in the half. BC shot 37.5 percent in the period.

Scott Wood led N.C. State with 14 points and Richard Howell added eight points.

ACC Tournament 2012: Boston College, N.C. State Meet In First Round

Ryan Anderson and the No. 12 seeded Boston College Eagles will look to make some noise when they face the No. 5 seeded N.C. State Wolfpack in the opening round of the 2012 ACC Tournament at 2 p.m. EDT in Atlanta on Thursday.

N.C. State took both regular season meetings against Boston College this year, but the Eagles lead the all-time series against the Wolfpack, 8-5. Since joining the ACC, BC is just 5-5 against N.C. State. In the first meeting of the year, the Wolfpack posted a 76-62 home win on Jan. 19 before beating the Eagles, 56-51, at Conte Forum on Feb. 1.

Boston College finished the regular season with a 9-21 overall record and a 4-12 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference, which pegged them 12th (dead last) in the conference. Nevertheless, it was a successful season for the young Eagles, who featured nine first-year players and played very well in spurts at different points of the year.

The Eagles started conference play very well, winning their first two ACC games against the Clemson Tigers and Virginia Tech Hokies. Alas, they couldn't sustain the success and would lose six in a row and 11 of their final 13 games to close out the season. BC's best game came against then No. 15/17 Florida State in a 64-60 upset win.

Ryan Anderson, a freshman forward from California, emerged as the Eagles' most consistent player over the season and finished the year as the team's leading scorer (10.8 PPG) and rebounder (7.2 RPG). Matt Humphrey, a junior transfer from the University of Oregon, was BC's second leading scorer, averaging 10.5 points this season.

North Carolina State, meanwhile, closed out the season with two straight wins after losing four in a row. The Wolfpack posted a 20-11 record in the regular season and were 9-7 in the conference, good enough for fifth place in the ACC. C.J. Leslie led the charge for the Wolfpack this year, averaging a team-best 14.3 points and was the team's second best rebounder, averaging 7.1 boards per contest.

The winner of Thursday's game will face No. 4 Virginia in the quarterfinal round.
