Our guesses for Monday night's game were more or less on target:Â FSU had little trouble with Central Florida, winning 73-50, Georgia Tech stung Delaware State 70-52, Virginia Tech mauled Monmouth, 91-46 and B.C. struggled with New Hampshire, 67-64. It was a tight game as you might expect from a team with 11 freshmen.

Bernard James has a surprise for opponents: he can score now too.Â The big man hit 18 against the Knights and pulled down 11 boards, almost all of it in the second half.
Remember UVa refugee Tristan Spurlock?Â He had 12 for UCF, one more than young Marcus Jordan, who had 11.
Nice job by Daniel Miller as Tech's big man had 14 points and 15 boards. Kammeon Holsey, who has been limited by injuries thus far, racked up 21. Glen Rice, Jr. is still sitting, suspended for whatever naughty thing he did.
Seth Greenberg hasn't been around long enough to relish beating King Rice's team, but we're guessing at least some Tech fans rubbed it in to the former Heels point guard. Dorian Finney-Smith wasn't nearly as impressive this time out but he did grab seven boards. It's early, but he's averaging 11.5 rpg.
Dorenzo Hudson is back: Tech's best guard shot 7-10.Â Erick Green played 23 minutes, so we're assuming he's recovered from his recent injury.
On Tuesday, Virgina Tech gets a brush with fame as Isaiah Thomas brings his FIU Golden Panthers to Casell a part of the Preseason NIT, Miami gets an interesting game from Mike Rice's Rutgers team and UVa has a meaningless workout with Winthrop. We could see Rutgers winning but the others? Please.
