The tournament features four of the top five teams in the latest Inside Lacrosse poll, with No. 1 Notre Dame, No. 2 Duke, No. 4 Syracuse and No. 5 Virginia.

The tournament begins Friday with semifinal action. Notre Dame (10-1, 4-0 ACC) won the outright ACC regular-season title to notch the tournament’s top seed. The Fighting Irish play No. 4 seed Virginia (10-4, 1-3) at 5 p.m. in a rematch of their matchup today, where the Irish rallied from a halftime deficit to win 11-9 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Friday nightcap features No. 2 seed Syracuse (11-4, 3-1) facing No. 3 seed Duke (11-4, 1-3) at 8 p.m. Syracuse topped the Blue Devils, 10-4, in the ACC opener on March 20 in Syracuse, New York.

The championship game will be contested at noon Sunday. ACC Network will broadcast each of the three tournament games. The No. 3 and 4 seeds came down to a three-team tiebreaker, with Duke, Virginia and North Carolina all finishing with identical 1-3 league records. The tie was broken using the third tiebreaker in the league’s seeding guidelines, which is goal differential in head-to-head conference game results amongst the group of tied teams, with each result capped at +/- 5 goals. Duke earned the No. 3 seed by virtue of its plus-2 goal differential, while UVA finished with a 0 goal differential to claim the No. 4 seed. North Carolina ended with a minus-2 goal differential among the group of tied teams. The first tiebreaker is the winning percentage against the top team in the final standings (Notre Dame) and since all three teams lost to the Irish, the tiebreaker continued down the standings to the record versus the No. 2 team (Syracuse). All three teams also lost to the Orange. The second tiebreaker is the record within the group of tied teams, and each team was 1-1 in the group.

In the NCAA’s latest RPI, released Saturday, four ACC teams are among the top six: Duke (1), Notre Dame (2), Syracuse (4), and Virginia (6).
