UNC's James Michael McAdoo seems to be playing with more oomph lately

Our apologies - after a very long day we mistakenly posted football links here instead of our normal ACC stuff. The right links are here now.

In New Year's Eve ACC action, Pitt survived Albany, 58-46, Maryland downed NCCU 70-56, Syracuse knocked off Eastern Michigan 70-48, Virginia Tech took Maryland-Eastern Shore 82-66 and UNC waved bye-bye to Wilmington, 84-51.

After a rocky start to the season, Maryland may have turned a corner in the last few games. Certainly the Terps were better against Central than they have been lately.

Seth Allen came off the bench this time, playing 20 minutes, and had four assists.

Nick Faust has also been moved to the bench. He scored 19 to lead the Terps and also grabbed nine boards.

Dez Wells, with 10, was the only other player in double figures.

Maryland held Central to 32.7% from the floor.

In Chapel Hill, UNC started slow, leading by just eight at the half, but finished Wilmington in the second half when they built a 30-point lead.

James Michael McAdoo, who seemed to have problems finding his role earlier, is on a bit of a roll. In the last five games, he's averaging 17.4 ppg and six rpg.

Against Wilmington McAdoo had 23 points and 10 boards. Maybe he's figuring it out.

Eastern Michigan was good for one half against Syracuse and that was about it. Still, 70-48 looks worse than it is, not that a 22 point loss is good. But it looks worse than that.

Jerami Grant had 15 while rookie Tyler Ennis had nine assists.

On Wednesday, BC visits Harvard for what has become an annual beating.  The Eagles will probably lose again.

Due to the late finish for football, we will only do an abbreviated ACC Roundup today.
