Clemson struggled a bit with Georgia State, but the Tigers prevailed, and
they seem to have uncovered an exciting freshman in Trevor Booker, who racked up
a double-double. He hasn't gotten a lot of attention, but the kid is
averaging 10 ppg and 6 boards

Things change a bit now, with in order, FSU, Georgia Tech, State, Maryland,
UNC, B.C. and Duke coming up. What happens from here on, no matter what it
is, is going to be one of the most interesting stories in the ACC.

UNC ran over Dayton, and while we don't know a lot about Dayton currently,
it's a program which has a strong tradition (including a Final Four appearance
during the Wooden years) and demands respect. They came in at 10-2 and
lost by 30. Ol' Roy Williams says that his guys are coming around
defensively, and that's bad news for the rest of the conference.

Maryland won by 19, but like Duke's game against San Jose State, it was
closer than you might think. The Terps continue to struggle defensively,
but after Siena got as close as seven points at 80-73, Maryland finally put them

This isn't the first time this season Gary Williams has expressed irritation
with his team's effort. It's getting towards money time, as he well knows,
and his team needs to get it together before the ACC chews it up and spits it
out into the NIT again.

Boston College got by Northeastern, but like Maryland, they had a tussle for
part of the game and had to get a run near the end to pull it out.
Northeastern is coached by Bill Coen, a former Al Skinner assistant.

Georgia Tech's
Zach Peacock broke his right cheekbone
in the St. Francis game. His status
is uncertain, but he'll miss the Winston-Salem State game.

Tomorrow features an interesting game with Wake taking on ECU and Wake
transfer Jeremy Ingram, who would love to go back to Joel and steal won from the
Deacs. And the Deacs are pretty vulnerable, too. Well,
ESPN lists it as Monday.
The ACC's calendar has
it as a Tuesday game.
This article says
it's Monday.
So does Wake's official site. But no TV!

The rest of the week is non-conference stuff, with one exception, but on
Saturday, conference play begins in earnest with four games.
