Five games on the ACC schedule today with the marquee matchup likely being Virginia at UNC.  Both teams are in need of a win to help their NCAA tournament hopes, so look for a battle in Chapel Hill.  Duke travels to Maryland in a game that the Terps are capable of winning, although it becomes more difficult without Pe'Shon Howard available.  Maryland has enough talent to beat the Blue Devils, especially if Duke gets off to a slow start like did against Boston College or UNC.  Check out the game sim predictions, previews, links, and more below to get you ready for today's ACC action.
