GREENSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) – Saturday marks the second time in Atlantic Coast Conference history that a North Carolina-based team will not appear in the tournament championship game.

The teams split their regular season games – the Seminoles won 74-61 in Tallahassee on Dec. 15, while the Yellow Jackets won 76-65 in Atlanta on Jan. 30.
Chase for the Championship will be live from Greensboro at 6:30 p.m. to preview the tournament title game between the Noles and Jackets.
