Smell in Blacksburg, Miami bounds, Heels show off for old dudes

So much for Virginia's ride atop the ACC, they stunk it up at in-state rival VT

Looking fresh and rested after not having played for the past seven days, the Virginia Tech men's basketball team jumped out to an 11-2 lead to start the game, led by as many as 23 points in the first half and never looked back, running rival Virginia out of the building en route to a 84-57 ACC victory over the Cavaliers at Cassell Coliseum on Saturday afternoon.

Tech regains its focus; Cavs inexplicably lose theirs

Hokies hammer UVa

Virginia Tech basketball games are starting to draw crowds that rival the football fans in enthusiasm.

Surprise, Carolina beats Wake

With members of the '57 and '82 Championship teams watching, the Heels whipped Wake. Can Prosser really recover from 2 straight last place finishes? I know they are young, but this has got to be worrying some people. Who would have ever thought Wake fans would be counting on their football program for school pride?

Rebounding Mystery

Sometimes you just can't explain college basketball. How does NC State hold Carolina to 11 offensive rebounds, then go to Miami and give up 21 against a team missing 5 bigs to injuries? The wolfpack made a little run late to make it almost interesting but with Miami getting 17 more shots in the game, and state playing with four and a half players, not much Lowe could do. I hope by now everyone's expectations are reset a little after the euphoria induced idiocy that came after beating carolina and dreams of the big dance jumping in our heads.
