Gary Williams was unhappy with his team's intensity against Delaware State and can't have been very happy that they let Elon stay with them for 35+minutes.

Note for Cameron: Elon loves the three.

We have to give BC some credit for hanging with Wisconsin for as long as they did (a second-half 26-2 run killed them) and then for cutting it to a 10 point game late.  Wisconsin badgered Reggie Jackson into a 6-21 performance.

Virginia Tech won a critical game in beating Oklahoma State.  It's the kind of game they usually blow, frankly, and that they didn't speaks volumes about the team.  Bad news: Jeff Allen, Victor Davila and Cadarian Raines all picked up four fouls - Raines in just eight minutes.

This game and a very credible performance against Kansas State will really help them down the road.

Georgia Tech took down UTEP behind a 19/11 game from Glen Rice Jr. in the Legends Classic.

They'll get a tough opponent next: Syracuse in the finals.

Clemson's now 5-1 after the SC State game where Milton Jennings got his first double-double.

Next week starts the ACC-Big Ten Challenge, so we'll get a better idea soon of just where they are.
