A nice run of ACC news today so let’s jump right in.

Syracuse picked up a solid big man when 2020’s 6-10 Frank Anselem opted to anchor Jim Boeheim’s 2-3 zone. He has real potential as a shot blocker so good get for the ‘Cuse.

Future teammate Quincy Guerrier underwent groin surgery this week and will hopefully have a quick recovery.

And finally for news from Lower Canada, SU transfer Jalen Carey will announce his next school tomorrow.

Boston College has found its man and hired Temple’s Patrick Craft as new AD. If he wants to make BC relevant with the professional competition the Eagles have, aside from facilities and so on, his best bet is to hire coaches with exciting styles.

UNC AD Bubba Cunningham has spoken out against NCAA moves to allow athletes to profit from NIL (name, image and likeness). He says that “eight in 10” members of Congress he has talked to don’t want to deal with this problem which will make things interesting to say the least.

Clemson’s Aamir Sims has wisely decided to return to Tigertown next year rather than enter the NBA Draft. He’s promising but not ready yet and while he could make a living overseas, which he probably will do ultimately anyway, he has a shot at the league and another year of experience will help him greatly.

Finally, congratulations to Coppin State coach and former Maryland great Juan Dixon, who has proposed to his ex-wife.

Many of you paused there and inserted your own joke. May we continue now? Thank you kindly.

High school sweethearts, Dixon and Robyn were previously married from 2005-2012 before going their separate ways. The soon-to-be-Mrs-Dixon (again) has a bit of fun with her looming nuptials in this article.

Best of luck to both of them. The old joke is that a second marriage is picking hope over experience but when you remarry the person you first married, maybe you just are admitting that giving up was a mistake in the first place. And Dixon, as we learned in the ACC, is nothing if not tenacious.
