ACC Basketball Roundup(12/15)

New, comments

Exams were tough on everybody it would seem.

Wake Forest only won by 13 over a 2-7 Wright State team.

Georgia Tech lost to Illinois-Chicago. No word on if they made a bid for Obama's Senate seat in the process.

Miami muddled through versus Robert Morris winning by eight.

So for anyone freaking out about the Heels performance versus Oral Roberts, don't. Big breaks in the middle of the schedule shake things up and often times lead to rusty play. Meanwhile....

Boston College reeled off an impressive string of wins over the likes of UMass, Bryant U and USC Upstate. Actually, the win over UMass does carry some weight, especially since that same UMass team clipped Kansas over the weekend. Interesting to note that the Eagles offense seems to have found some balance. Tyrese Rice is only averaging 15 ppg with three other teammates averaging in double figures.

Virginia Tech lost to Georgia by one. The Hokies simply cannot win the close games. Their four losses have come by a combined eight points. And none of the losses are considered bad losses. Now #9 Xavier needed a half court shot at the buzzer to beat the Hokies. Wisconsin and Seton Hall are a combined 16-3 while Georgia is 6-3 and decent in their own right. Despite the record, VT will be a dangerous team to play when the ACC gets going.

Duke will not play again until Wednesday. Given the fact the prep for exams was tough on the team I can only assume UNC Asheville will beat the Devils since the exams themselves will likely be debilitating for the players.
