>For a change of pace, all three road teams won, though it wasn't easy for anyone: Duke of course won, as detailed elsewhere, Virginia Tech nipped Virginia in overtime, and UNC just barely got by Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
Indeed, if there was a theme for the evening's festivities, it was the home team fighting back and coming up short.
For Tech, it was the best performance of the year and suggests untapped potential.Â People will read this and think, sure, typical Duke guys, but we generally say what we think and the heck with it:Â we're not as sold on UNC as some folks are.Â Are they good? Heck yes. Are they great? Not until they prove it.
For Virginia, what can you say about Sean Singletary?Â The guy has had a tough time all through college, but he hands in there and does his best, and his best is better than normal athletes.Â But last year,Â he had J.R. Reynolds, and this year, his help is erratic and/or injured.
For Virginia, Tech, what a huge win. This is a young team, and they've got a long ways to go.Â Nonetheless, they areÂ bound to be optimistic after this, as they should be.Â We're impressed too.Â But is there any reason to go as overboard as Adam Kilgore of the Post?Â We didn't think reporters at the Post fawned like this.
In Raleigh, many fans have given up on the Wolfpack, and a lot of people think the team has given up as well. Check this out.Â Can it possibly be that bad?Â Well, perception is important, and in this case, when it rained, it poured.
