The only game on the schedule Tuesday night is Boston College at Virginia Tech.
B.C.'s Tyrese Rice is the best sort of player, in a sense, a self-made star, a guy almost no one thought could be this good. But there he is. A native of Salisbury, he was a UNC fan but was never considered by the Heels - or most of the rest of the conference. Think State would like to have him now?
His team has struggled even while Rice has taken off. B.C. is sliding towards .500 overall and is only 4-8 in the conference. But there's a lot of young talent to bring along, and they'll be back.
Virginia Tech is playing better than B.C., though, and as Al Skinner noted, beat B.C. even when short-handed. Deron Washington says his team has bonded since before the season started.
UNC has played increasingly well since Ty Lawson's high ankle sprain, and now they'll get a bit of a break and some time to recharge. Tyler Hansbrough has been pretty amazing down the stretch as he's elevated his game another notch, which didn't seem real likely, but there it is. He's an absolute lock for the ACC Player of The Year
Barry Jacobs says, yes, Tyler Hansbrough is a great player, but, well, he's kind of boring.
Maryland's up-and-down season continues, and much of it is tied to the performance of Greivis Vasquez and James Gist, who has been great at times and invisible at others.
State's had an ugly season, and Hayes Permar of 850TheBuzz has some fun at the expense of State fans.
