Looks like Dorenzo Hudson is okay: The Hokie guard racked up 31 against FIU.  Freshman star Dorian Finney-Smith added 14 points, 10 boards, five assists and two steals.  We haven't looked very carefully, but so far, he's having a great freshman year, probably as good as anyone in the ACC.

Seth Greenberg has gotten used to him quickly: “Doe-Doe is Doe-Doe, he affects the game in so many different ways. He’s still got to be stronger with the ball. In the first half, we probably left six to eight points on the floor.”

Doe-Doe? Seriously? Apparently that's what his grandmother calls him. He's still too skinny, but as we said, keep an eye on him.

Also, Erick Green says his foot is still bothering him: “I just put all my weight back on it in the 2-3 zone trying to plant, and I felt it go back to how it was. I just called it off, because I didn’t want to risk putting more pressure on it or hurting it. We were up in the lead, so I thought we’d be all right.”

Winthrop gave Virginia more of a game than the Hoos probably expected, but Virginia pulled away in the second half.  Mike Scott put up 18 points and eight boards, suggesting that he's definitely back.  Jontel Evans had a career high with 17 on 5-6 from the floor and 2-2 from the line.

Virginia is playing pretty well, albeit against weaker competition, but if they have a concern it may be depth:  their rotation right now is about seven.

Miami pretty much controlled the game against Rutgers, other than a strong run by the Scarlet Knights.  Miami squelched that without too much trouble.  Their excellent backcourt of Durand Scott and Malcolm Grant both hit for 19 and new addition (and Florida refugee) Kenny Kadji had 13 points and five boards. Veterans Erik Swoope and Garrius Adams also started and contributed six and nine points respectively.

We haven't really had a chance to get into this, but Maryland is in a serious financial hole and the Terps are likely to cut several sports.  No doubt they're excited about the extra revenue expansion promises.
