In the sole Sunday game, Wake knocked off Florida State, 74-57, and in a big hurry, what was a promising, possibly break-through season for Florida State is in trouble, as the 'Noles have fallen to 12-7 and 1-3 in the ACC. Wake was led by James Johnson, whose game led Leonard Hamilton to gush that he was better as a freshman than Al Thornton. Not that that registered with Johnson, who has no idea who Thornton is: âFor a coach to say that, thatâs just a big compliment no matter if I know who Al Thornton is or not,â Johnson said after the game. âIf heâs in the (NBA), obviously heâs real good.â
Ah, youth. Lucky for him Thornton is gone.
It was an impressive victory for Wake, and their schedule is pretty favorable in the short term. Things are looking up. They go to Clemson on Tuesday, which is the next ACC game.
That's not the case for Virginia Tech, where Jeff Allen really screwed his team after getting suspended for two games after bumping official Zelton Steed Saturday. The two games are against Duke and on the road against B.C. He's become a key player for them, and they'll have a much tougher time without him. If they lose both games, they'll fall to 11-9. Allen was also just named ACC Rookie of the Week.
