ACC Roundup

Miami pretty well stuck it to Clemson Wednesday, winning 62-38. The 38
catches the eye much more than the actual 24 point margin, but there's no way to
minimize it: it's a complete and thorough butt whoopin'. More surprisingly,
Miami, a team which seemed to be coming on, is now squarely in second place in
the conference, ahead of UNC, State, and everyone else. That's pretty
impressive for a team which seemed early to be in real trouble with
injuries. The
'Canes look to be making a move.

In Wednesday's other ACC game, Wake Forest finally won one, beating Georgia
Tech, 86-71. Eric Williams and Justin Gray continued to play very well for
the Deacs, with Williams getting 21 points and 11 boards, and Gray racking up
25.

Looks like Skip Prosser decided to mix things up, benching Kyle Visser and
"please don't squeeze the" Sharmain Dukes, who was getting squeezed
plenty by opponents. Harvey Hale scored 16 points in 27 minutes, which has
to be encouraging for Prosser.

UNC
has come off a couple of shaky games
as they prepare for Virginia, and this
as UVa is finding some hope. Will it be enough? We've been wrong on about
everything this season. We're picking the Heels. Will that be
enough?

One thought we had that didn't make into the summary was that State doesn't
really have a dominant player - but Cedric Simmons may become one. Mike
DeCourcy has a similar idea.
