The 2019 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament was the 66th annual postseason men's basketball tournament for the Atlantic Coast Conference, held March 12–16, 2019 at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Virginia Cavaliers and North Carolina Tar Heels entered the tournament as the top two seeds, both with 16–2 conference, and ranked #2 and #3 in the country respectively. Both teams were defeated in the semifinals, by the #4 Florida State Seminoles (ranked #12 nationally) and the #3 Duke Blue Devils (ranked #6 nationally). Duke defeated Florida State, 73–63, in the championship game, claiming their 21st ACC Tournament title and 15th during head coach Mike Krzyzewski's tenure. Duke's Zion Williamson was named the tournament's MVP.

Seeds[edit]

All 15 ACC teams participated in the tournament, seeded by their record within the conference, with a tiebreaker system to seed teams with identical conference records.[1] The top 4 seeds (Virginia, North Carolina, Duke, and Florida State) received a double bye. Virginia Tech, Syracuse, NC State, Louisville, and Clemson receive single byes. Boston College, Miami, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, and Notre Dame played in the first round.
