The Tar Heels fell to the Blue Devils 74-73, ending their run in the 2019 ACC Tournament one day shy of the league's title game. But many on North Carolina's team believe they are deserving of a No. 1 seed.

But while Wade has been banished to the sideline for the time being, the Tigers will be at the party. "There was never any pressure for me to rush back when I wasn't ready", he said.
