That’s right. ACC basketball media day is today. Coach Jamie Dixon, James Robinson and Cameron Wright are down in Greensboro for the day. The ACC is doing interviews and taking fan questions on Twitter with the hashtag #ACCTakeover . I don’t see any problems when UNC Coach Roy Williams gets his turn. What could go wrong? There will be coverage on ESPNU and on ESPN3.com all day...
Maybe there’s some good news from Pitt basketball. Senior guard Cameron Wright, Pitt’s leading returning scorer, had surgery Friday after breaking his left foot a week before the team’s first practice, a team source said.

The 2014-15 PItt basketball team is one that promises to compete with the best of the best in the ACC. I expect the Panthers to finish within the top four of the ACC. There will be a tougher schedule for the Panthers given the conference’s newest addition is former Big East foe Louisville, and you know that Rick Pitino will have his sights set on a top spot in the ACC.

Cameron Wright probably regrets his decision to drive the basketball on the possession shown below. Wright, a junior guard for the Pitt Panthers, tried to take it hard to the hole against Virginia in the second half of Saturday’s ACC semi-final matchup. He was met by three Cavaliers, all of whom blocked his attempt. It’s one of the rare “triple-blocks” we’ve ever seen.
