ACC Roundup

Maryland beat Monmouth by 33 despite committing 22 turnovers. Sean Allen had seven alone; Nick Faust had four of his own. Mark Turgeon confesses himself frustrated with his team: “We’re playing Monmouth. Nothing against Monmouth, but our guys should play better against Monmouth than they’re playing,” Turgeon said. “You guys want me to be honest? I’m honest. I’m disappointed. They have to give me more. Problem is everyone’s telling them how good they are because of their record. And they’re listening, instead of listening to me. I have a lot of time with them. They’ll all be fine.”

Athlon Sports takes a look at the ACC and ranks Duke as the major surprise. We would have taken Virginia Tech.

They also point out UNC's free throw percentage is just 61.7%, which is very surprising. We had no idea it was so weak.

Two ACC alum notes: former UVa coach Terry Holland is stepping down as ECU's A.D. Perhaps more widely admired as an A.D. than he was as a coach, which is not to diminish his very able coaching, Holland leaves ECU much stronger than he found it.

Secondly, David Thompson recently auctioned off a fair amount of his memorabilia. He netted $164,000, including $44,427 for his national championship ring.

He could've gotten millions if he could have figured out a way to auction off his leaping ability.

As we mentioned yesterday, Solomon Poole is showing up at Tech early. It might make sense to redshirt him, but CBSSports is reporting that he'll play as soon as possible.
