The Tar Heel State is barely big enough to contain the excitement every time Duke University and the University of North Carolina men’s basketball teams take the court to play each other twice a year in their storied hardwood rivalry. Now it’s the Big Apple’s turn to be the host of, arguably, college basketball’s biggest production of the year.

Honestly, all that needs to be said to get you going for our latest foray in covering the 2017 ACC Tournament in Brooklyn is that we’re about to be on the court and shooting the 245th edition of Duke-Carolina rivalry. But, not to be outdone, there’s another semifinal matchup to take place after Duke-UNC, and it’s not a shabby game either: third-seeded Notre Dame taking on No. 2 Florida State.

While we’re busy snapping away in Brooklyn, we’ll also be in Washington D.C. for the quarterfinals of the 2017 Big Ten Tournament, and will have postgame interviews from the completed games at the end of the long day in our nation’s capital.

Once again, photographer Robert Cole has you covered from courtside at the Barclays Center to provide you the amazing sights from underneath the basket of both semifinal games. We’re hoping that the tempers don’t boil over so much that they spill onto photographer’s row and we get caught in the crossfire.

Keep refreshing this page soon after the games end to see the latest pictures from Day 4 of the 2017 ACC Tournament.
