ACC Roundup

In Saturday's ACC action, Clemson beat Georgia Tech on a last-second driving
layup, the second straight game they've won in that manner, and the Tigers are
now the last undefeated team in the country after UCLA lost. Georgia Tech
has lost 14 straight road games. Zach Peacock can take some responsibility for the loss: after he was whistled for a flagrant foul and ejected, Clemson got pretty fired up.

Boston College seriously thumped State, 74-58, quickly shooting down our
theory that State might have won because they're more used to adversity than
B.C., which is getting over some injuries. Jared Dudley and John
Oates (minus Daryl Hall, presumably) are both back and both played a lot (38 and
21 minutes, respectively). Engin Atsur is back for State, too; he played
31 minutes and racked up 10 assists.

Down in Miami, Wake Forest had their worst offensive first half ever,
scoring only 20 points, but managed to bounce back in the second half to put
Miami away behind a 25-8 run.

In Sunday's ACC action, Virginia steps out of conference to take on Stanford,
a game which might have been interesting a few years ago but which isn't nearly
as attractive now with Stanford in a rebuilding mode. Certainly they're not what
they were when Mike Montgomery was coaching them.

And in the Sunday night Fox game, UNC welcomes Florida to the Dean

Florida State has the talent to play with a lot of teams - witness their
upset of Florida - but they have generally struggled in Chapel Hill. UNC has a
lot of size inside, which the 'Noles definitely don't have. It should be
an up and down game, so maybe it won't matter as much. But we'd be
surprised if they pull it off.
