The Virginia men’s soccer team earned the No. 4 seed at the 2008 ACC Tournament and will face No. 5 seed Duke Wednesday at 8 p.m. at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. All games are available free of charge online through ACCSelect.com, while the championship game will be nationally televised on Fox Sports Net.

The Cavaliers finished the regular season with a 9-7-1 overall record and 4-4 mark in the ACC to earn the No. 4 seed. Duke, meanwhile, finished with a 10-6-2 record (3-3-2 ACC).

Virginia has won nine ACC Tournament titles, with the most recent coming in 2004.

The Cavaliers advanced to the quarterfinals last season, after defeating NC State in the first round. Boston College won the quarterfinal match, 1-0.

Several Cavaliers earned ACC honors, announced Tuesday. Tony Tchani was selected the ACC Freshman of the Year and named to the second team, while Shawn Barry, Brian Ownby and Tchani were named to the All-Freshman team.

The Blue Devils, who defeated Virginia 1-0 in overtime earlier in the season, have won the last three meetings all three coming in overtime or double-overtime. However, the Cavaliers hold a narrow 36-35-7 advantage in the series.

Should Virginia advance to the semifinals, it would face the winner of No. 1 Wake Forest vs. either No. 8 NC State or No. 9 Virginia Tech Friday at 8 p.m.

Tuesday and Wednesday’s action will be played on WakeMed Soccer Park’s Koka Booth Stadium, while the semifinals and title game on Friday and Sunday, respectively, will be played on the main field, WakeMed Soccer Stadium. The championship game will kick off at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 16.
