Yep


Definitely '87. ACC tourney was played at the Cap Center. UNC beat UVa in 2OT in a controversial way (still think Kenny Smith held JJ to get the turnover in 1st OT.) NCSU then beat the favored Tar Heels.

A little pettiness on my part. Kenny Smith played on two undefeated teams in ACC conference play. Neither squad won an ACC championship nor a NCAA championship. So what is the pettiness? Smith was choosing between UNC and UVa as his college choice. He eventually chose UNC saying, "Virginia is telling me wait two years and we'll be back in the championship race. North Carolina is telling me we will play for the championship next year." Oh, BTW, UVa, shockingly, went to the FF the following year. UNC never played in a FF the four years Smith was at UNC.
