ACC Roundup

Virginia did something pretty impressive in the first half against Virginia Tech in throwing a blanket over star guard Erick Green. He had just one point at the half but got 21 in the second.

UVa's Joe Harris had a career high 26. Virginia is now back in third place and if Duke holds serve on Thursday, they'll have a two-game lead on UNC. 

The Duke-UNC game is the highlight game on Thursday, but Miami heads up to Tallahassee to play FSU. That's another good conference rivalry, but Miami has a clear advantage. Still, if Leonard Hamilton can get his guys fired up on D, you never know. Florida State is capable of tremendous defense.

And by the way, speaking of Miami, there's been a lot of people suggesting this is a Final Four-calibre team and maybe it is.

So is Florida. It would be a phenomenal thing if Miami and Florida met in the Final Four, much less the title game. Among other things, it would be the biggest boost for basketball in the state of Florida, well, ever.

As for Wake-BC, since the game in Winston-Salem was just a three-point win for the Deacs, and after what we saw Sunday, BC is our pick here. They have given Duke a tough game, very nearly beat Miami, only lost to State by five and nearly beat Maryland at Maryland. 

Wake has been pretty good at home but the road is another story.
