The first upset as Clemson falls flat(shocking I know) and Georgia Tech sets up a battle of the crappy coaches versus FSU on Friday.

Georgia Tech going for the upset. According to C.Michael, Lewis Clinch is playing like he is All-ACC.

Yeah, playing in potentially your last game in college does that to you.

Previous updates after the jump.

GT giving Clemson a run at the half, tied at 39.

Clemson-GT tipoff.  More people showing up for this one considering that GT is in Atlanta and Clemson is probably the next closest school.

C.Michael: The 3 point shooting has been abysmal. From my seats, the rims are hard to pick out from the stands. Not sure if the same is true on the court.  Could be a benefit to a team like UNC that works from inside out.

Virginia Tech earns a date with UNC beating Miami 65-47.  According to C.Michael, Miami basically laid down for the Hokies and UNC would have run either one of them off the court whether Lawson played or not.

Clemson-Georgia Tech up next where I am sure the ugliness will continue.

UPDATE: C.Michael reports: "Ugly...This is Big East basketball at it's worst!"

VT 28 Miami 24 at the half.

Update: Here is the VT-Miami game at tipoff via C.Michael.  As you can see they are really packing them in for this one.

I like buffets.  Put me at any pizza buffet or even Golden Corral and I am a happy man.  This is a basketball buffet so eat up but pace yourself.
