Florida State at Duke, 1:00PM ET

Duke was hoping for another shot at its biggest rival in the championship game of the ACC tournament. Instead, the ninth-ranked Blue Devils had better be prepared for pesky No. 22 Florida State.

The third-seeded Blue Devils look for a record-tying 17th ACC tournament title Sunday when they face the fourth-seeded Seminoles at the Georgia Dome.

Even before Duke (27-6) beat Maryland 67- 61 in Saturday's semifinals, it knew a third meeting with top-ranked North Carolina would not happen. Florida State (25-8) upset the Tar Heels 73- 70 in the day's first semifinal to reach the title game for the first time.

Though Duke would have liked to avenge a pair of regular-season losses to rival North Carolina, it must shift its attention to the talented Seminoles as it tries to equal the Tar Heels for the most ACC tournament championships.

Ohio State at Purdue, 3:30PM ET

Just last week, Purdue was out of sync and scuffling, and didn't look much like a NCAA tournament team.

It's now making those frustrations a thing of the past.

The 24th-ranked Boilermakers look to win their first Big Ten tournament title Sunday when they meet Ohio State, which is coming off an impressive upset and seeking its second tournament crown in three years.

Led by a healthy Robbie Hummel, third-seeded Purdue (24-9) is in rhythm and playing like the team that was picked in preseason to win the Big Ten title.

After beating No. 6 seed Penn State 79- 65 in the conference tournament quarterfinals Friday, the Boilermakers defeated second-seeded Illinois 66- 56 in Saturday's semifinals. In the two games, Purdue's connected on 19 of 39 3-pointers and committed only 10 turnovers.
