Seedings and pairings are out for the ACC Women's Basketball Tournament and one thing is for sure.

There will be three teams in the semifinals that have never won the tournament during its 10-year run in Greensboro.

Maryland is the defending champion, UNC won four in a row before that and Duke five in a row before that.

And they're all in the same group of three, only one of which can advance to Saturday's semifinals this time.

The top-seeded Blue Devils (24-5), who have lost in the finals each of the last two seasons, will play in the quarterfinals on Friday at 3 p.m. The opponent will be the winner of Thursday's 3 p.m. contest between No. 8 seed UNC (18-10) and No. 9 seed Maryland (18-11).

The matchup between the Tar Heels and Terps will be the second of four games on Thursday.

The tournament tips off at 11 a.m., with No. 5 seed Wake Forest (17-12) taking on No. 12 seed Miami (17-12), with that winner advancing to Friday's 11 a.m. quarterfinal against No. 4 seed Georgia Tech (22-8).

Thursday's 6 p.m. contest will have No. 7 seed Boston College (15-14) taking on No. 10 seed Virginia Tech (15-14), with that winner taking on No. 2 seed Florida State (26-4) in the same time slot on Friday.

The nightcappers on Thursday at 8 are No. 6 seed N.C. State (17-12) and No. 11 seed Clemson (13-17), with the winner advancing to Friday's 8 p.m. nightcap against No. 3 seed Virginia (21-8).

The semifinals are at 1 and 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, with the title game on Sunday at 1.
