The ACC Tournament is entering the semifinals stage. Just 4 teams remain alive in Greensboro, North Carolina before the ACC crowns a champion with an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Miami and Virginia split the regular-season ACC title.

The conference tournament is playing out a bit like the regular season as the 4 teams remaining are the top 4 seeds: No. 1 Miami, No. 2 Virginia, No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Duke.

At this point, the only bubble storyline to watch is Clemson. The Tigers are 23-9 and up to No. 51 in the NET rankings after an 80-54 win over NC State on Thursday night. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has Clemson in the “First Four Out” in his Friday morning projections. Lunardi’s ESPN colleague Jay Bilas strongly believes Clemson belongs in the NCAA Tournament.

Here’s a look at how we got to this stage:
