ACC Roundup!

Only one game Tuesday night as B.C. chugs down to Clemson to see if they can Tank the Tigers.  Things have gotten a bit tougher for Steve Donahue, but he's still doing an impressive job.   The winner will take at least temporary sole possession of fourth place.

As solid as Donahue has been, Brad Brownell has been steadily improving Clemson.  Both guys are having an excellent first season.

In Raleigh, CJ Leslie returns after a one-game suspension.  El Sid says he's learned from it and will be better for it.

In general, the ACC is grinding to a halt in anticipation of the Duke-UNC game.  We'll cover it in depth, but for now it's worth pointing out the tremendous improvement UNC has made.  We've talked before of the potential of Tyler Zeller and  John Henson.  Both big guys can fly, and now they have someone who can get them the ball.  Kendall Marshall and Harrison Barnes were named co-rookies of the week (Virginia Tech's Jeff Allen is player of the week).
