ACC Roundup

Then tonight our ESPN app buzzed to tell us about Maryland-Stony Brook. Quick panic!

Then we realized that Maryland's not an ACC school, so no big deal.

As it turns out, Maryland only beat Stony Brook 76-69.

Mark Turgeon said they're a great team and maybe they are. But they're out of the America East, with stablemates like Hartford, New Hampshire and Maine and of course Maryland's traditional whipping post, UMBC.

Maryland was up 20 and let them back in the game.

Mark Turgeon was pleased that his team got a challenge and showed some gumption, but you know,  Stony Brook? Seriously?

Most of Saturday's games are basically tuneups, but there are some good subplots.

In the UNC game: can the Heels put the pieces back together? Can James Michael McAdoo be an assertive star? Can the big men collectively hit the boards? Will the defense improve?

In the FSU game: are they as bad as they have looked? Will they pull it together? And what's going on with Michael Snaer??

In the Wake Forest game: can young Wes Miller school the Deacs? Will Wake have a cross town let down?

In the Virginia Tech game: has depth already caught up to the Hokies? Do they have enough players?

In the Virginia game: DeShawn Painter gets an encore ACC shot. Can UVa shut him down?
