Found January 17, 2013 on SCACC Hoops:
Game Sim nearly nailed both games last night, predicting a Miami 1 point victory and a Maryland 4 point win.  Of course, it couldn't have predicted the bizarre ends of either game.  NC State loses on a airball from Pe'Shon Howard that finds its way into Alex Len who drops it in at the buzzer.  Boston College is called for a bogus offensive foul only to have Olivier Hanlan get fouled shooting a 3 with time expired.  Hanlan made the first two (using every bit of the rim) but failed to make the third.  While it wasn't pretty, it was an exciting night of ACC basketball. Check out the links below for recaps on both games. Tonight, Duke hosts Georgia Tech, and the Blue Devils are the more talented team.  It will be interesting to see how Duke continues to transition without Ryan Kelly.  Does Duke start Amile Jefferson tonight?  The Yellow Jackets are young and that isn't usually something that is helpful in Cameron. Check out game sim's prediction and the game preview below.

Maryland stuns No. 14 North Carolina State 51-50

North Carolina State played excellent defense, never let down after falling into an early hole and staged a fine comeback in the second half. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to offset an uncharacteristically miserable offensive showing by the best-shooting team in the country. Alex Len dropped in a missed shot by teammate Pe'Shon Howard with 00.9 seconds left, giving...
