The bad news for the North Carolina Tar Heels is they lost the ACC Final to their bitter rivals, the Duke Blue Devils.

But the good news is, while Duke is a number one seed, the Blue Devils will play their games out west. But the Tar Heels are staying at home and playing their first game, and second game should they win, in their home state.

Roy Williams's squad will play Long Island University in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The winner of that game will play the following round in Charlotte as well, against the winner of the Washington Huskies and the Georgia Bulldogs.

In some ways, it may be better for the Tar Heels that they loss today against the Blue Devils, 75-58. Playing in their home state means miminal travel and more of their fans at the game.
