The ACC Tournament was held last week at Barclays Center, with Virginia beating North Carolina on Saturday night to cap off an incredible tournament.

Virginia, the number one seed in the ACC Tournament, finished the regular season as the top team in the nation, and they will enter the NCAA Tournament as the top overall seed, expected to break through and win a national championship.

North Carolina, the defending National Champion, entered as the six seed, and after a solid win over Syracuse on Wednesday night, came back from 14-0 down early to beat Miami, and then outlasted Duke in a classic in the semifinals on Friday night before falling to Virginia on Saturday night.

Here are some images of the big moments and the festivities of the ACC in Brooklyn:

Bands are a huge part of any college basketball game, especially a conference tournament. This is the Virginia band.
