With 26 points, Harrison Barnes most likely wrapped up ACC Rookie of the Year in this game, an award which was gift wrapped for Kyrie Irving before his injury. At this point, there's no serious candidate other than Barnes.

It was just a solid all-around effort by the Tar Heels, who, it must be said, are improving rapidly.

You certainly can't say that for Wake Forest.

After their first ACC win over Virginia, the Deacons fell back to their old ways and were subsequently crushed by Florida State.

No question Florida State's the better defensive team, but they manhandled Wake Forest in every aspect.

Both Virginia and Virginia Tech are having injury plagued seasons, but Tech has better leadership than does young Virginia. So who steps into the void? Mustapha Farrakhan, that's who.

Miami is losing, but not by much: they have been in pretty much every game lately; they just can't quite get over the hump.
