USA TODAY Sports

Miami topped North Carolina to win their first ACC tournament title in school history.

The Miami Hurricanes defeated the North Carolina Tar Heels, 87-77, to win the first ACC tournament title in school history.

The game was a thrilling back-and-forth contest nearly all day, with both teams raining threes all over Greensboro. Miami made 12 of 22 three-point shots, while North Carolina sunk 13 of 29 threes. The Hurricanes won the rebounding battle, 33 to 26, and shot 50.8 percent from the field.

Shane Larkin took home MVP honors after scoring 28 points, making 8 of 15 three-pointers and dishing out seven assists. He scored 20 or more points in all three tourney games for Miami.
