"I am extremely happy for our team that it earned a selection to play in the NCAA Tournament," Roy Williams said in a prepared statement. "Our players did exactly what I thought they would do– they worked hard and got better and better as the year progressed. Making the field is a reward for their continued improvement. We look forward to hopefully playing our best basketball this coming weekend.

"I am somewhat surprised and disappointed that only four ACC teams are in the field and that the league only received two No. 2's and two No. 8 seeds. I think the ACC deserved better than that."
