ACC Morning Linkfest 12/6

Wedneday night was an interesting night of basketball in the ACC.  One of my tweets from last night sums it up pretty well. Tonight's ACC hoops in one tweet: UVA won scoring 46 pts! Maryland won by 32 pts ! Wake Forest won! FSU had 19 pts with 10 min left! #goacc — Jon Pence (@scacchoops) December 6, 2012 Outside of perhaps Maryland, it wasn't one of the prettier nights...

No. 8 Duke Survives Upset Bid From No. 16 Virginia

by David Cassilo / @dcassilo After 12 straight wins No. 16 Virginia had a chance to legitimize its run at the ACC title with a trip to No. 8 Duke. But the Blue Devils fended off the Cavaliers best efforts, hanging on for a 61-58 victory. Duke trailed by four points at the half, but a 7-0 run after the game was tied at 38 put the team up for good. Virginia, though, had its chances...

Virginia's Jontel Evans making smarter plays

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Jontel Evans' performance in the first half Tuesday was forgettable. His second half was a hint Virginia could be dangerous all season if the junior guard can produce a multidimensional performance.
