Virginia walloped Boston College 72-41 Thursday in the nightcap of the first round of the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament at Greensboro Coliseum, completing the pairings for Friday’s quarterfinal action.

In the first matchup of two male coaches in the 35-year history of the tournament, Mike Petersen’s Wake Forest club held off Dennis Wolff’s Virginia Tech team 80-74 behind 22 points from Southeast Raleigh alumna Lakevia Boykin.

Earlier in the day, both UNC and N.C. State avenged painful regular-season losses. The Tar Heels annihilated Clemson 90-51 and the Wolfpack came back to nip Florida State 74-71.

The Tar Heels (20-10) will be back in action in front of 10,000 screaming school children in the 11 a.m. game, taking on No. 15 Georgia Tech (22-7).

The Wolfpack (17-14) will square off with defending champion and No. 5 Duke (24-4) at 3 p.m.

The Deacons (18-12) will take on No. 7 Miami (25-4) at 6 p.m., while the 8 p.m. nightcap will see Virginia (22-9) face off against No. 6 Maryland (25-4).

Semifinals are Saturday at 11 a.m., with the championship game at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
