USA TODAY Sports

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. On the Tar Heels' side, P.J. Hairston had a heroic effort, racking up 28 points and sinking 9 of 17 shots on a bandaged hand.

The Hurricanes wrap up both the regular season and tournament crown, giving them a decent shot at the No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. Will they make it? Tune into the Selection Sunday show on CBS to find out.
