    This Week in the ACC - 1/11-1/17

    Three undefeated teams at the top, three winless teams at the bottom (one of which is guaranteed to get a win this week - assuming, of course, the game is able to be played), and a bunch in between (some of which have played only 2 games, others as many as 5).

    Monday is dark

    Tuesday
    [33]Virginia Tech (3-1) (-1) hosts [21]Duke (3-0) (7:00, ACCN)
    [104]Boston College (0-5) (+2) hosts [62]Miami (1-4) (7:00, ACCNX)
    [29]North Carolina (2-2) (-3) hosts [39]Syracuse (1-1) (9:00, ACCN)

    Wednesday
    [15]Virginia (3-0) (-10) hosts [89]Notre Dame (0-4) (4:30, ACCN)
    [31]Florida State (1-1) (-4) hosts [49]NC State (2-2) (6:30, ACCN)
    [125]Wake Forest (0-3) (+8) hosts [26]Louisville (3-0) (8:30, ACCN)
    [70]Georgia Tech hosts [76]Pittsburgh (POSTPONED)

    Thursday and Friday are dark

    Saturday
    [31]Florida State (1-1) (-2) hosts [29]North Carolina (2-2) (12:00, ESPN)

    [49]NC State (2-2) (-5) hosts [70]Georgia Tech (2-1) (2:00, ACCNX)
    [89]Notre Dame (0-4) (-3) hosts [105]Boston College (0-5) (4:00, ACCN)
    [18]Clemson (3-1) (-2) hosts [15]Virginia (3-0) (6:00, ESPN)
    [62]Miami (1-4) (+2) hosts [26]Louisville (3-0) (8:00, ACCN)

    Sunday

    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    Well, there may be at least one very good team in the ACC.

    Florida State crushed NC State 105-73 and did it with outstanding shooting. Some of the stats are stunning:
    12-18 from 3-pt for FSU (NC State didn't do badly in that area -- hitting 11-26)
    11-11 FT
    41-58 FG = 70.7%

    And
    Rebounding advantage 32-19
    Assists -- 24 assists for FSU vs 10 for NC State
    Seminoles led 57-32 at half

    I watched that game. Outliers exist, but it sure looked to me like FSU is absolutely the team we thought they might be pre-season. Just really talented, really athletic, and really long.

    Justin Champagnie warming up with his teammates before the Syracuse game. Will be interesting to see if he plays. Obviously would affect our upcoming game with Pitt, too, if arguably their best player is back early from injury.

    An update on my post above -- looks like Champagnie is in (and our upcoming game against them got tougher).

    Pitt's Justin Champagnie (knee) is participating in warmups and expected to play today against Syracuse, per a school spokesman. Was averaging 17.8 PPG and 12.3 RPG. Significant ACC news.

    Watching FSU vs UNC. There are a lot of teams in the ACC better than Duke is right now.

    Heels hit 10 threes and sill lost 82-75. Both teams have a lot of weapons. FSU played without their star freshman who tweaked his ankle against NCS.

    Someone please explain to me how Florida State is not ranked.

    No Scottie Barnes, no problem beating UNC by 7.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    They look as good or better than anyone else in the ACC at the moment. Maybe it's the small sample set?

    How about the FT Shooting of FSU.. 11/11 v NCS. 26/27 !! Vs UNC. And thatís a big FSU team. Not a bunch of 6í1 guards shooting those FTs. Many by 6í 8 and 7í1 guy. Honestly if Hurt is so good at shooting 3s he should be more dependable for us at FT line

    Clemson-UVa

    8 minutes in and UVa is up 12-2. While I respect UVa's defense, I can't stand to watch basketball like this.
