|Thursday Night ACC Action|
|Georgia Tech @ Miami||7:00||ESPN2|
Virginia has made a habit of blowing gamesÂ late this season, but not this time. After holding Clemson 13 points in the first half, Virginia let them back in the game before Mustapha Farrakhan hit the go-ahead basket with about a half-minute left and then closed the Tigers out with free throws.
As for State, no question that Virginia Tech is a mentally tough team, but there's no reason why State can't be too.
The Pack got embarrassed on the boards in the first half, getting smoked 27-12. Sidney Lowe tried to push various buttons but nothing made a difference.
In the second half, State did try to rallym but it was too little too late. Unfortunately, this is turning into yet another dreary season in Raleigh as the legacy of Everett CaseÂ slips further and further into the past.
There's no question in our mind that State could be revived, but it seems harder and harder to imagine Sidney LoweÂ being the one to do it.
Speaking of State, after Gavin Grant's arrest, the last thing they needed was another former player in trouble.
Unfortunately, that's exactly what they got: former Wolfpack guard Anthony Grundy was arrested and charged with DWI for the fifth time.
He's in serious trouble now, and a long way from his glory days.Â You have to work hard, or at least drink hard, to get arrested five times.
The evidence suwho him him him him him himggests that Grundy, who was truly a nice guy during his time at State, has developed a serious opponent in alcohol.Â We hope he realizes it and seeks help. He might not be so lucky next time, whenever he gets out of prison.
One game Thursday night as Georgia Tech visits Miami.
