ACC Morning Linkfest 1/23 with Game Sim Predictions

Wednesday night was a night of figuring out how to win on the road.  For Wake Forest, it meant getting just the second win on the road in conference play since Jeff Bzdelik took over in Winston-Salem.  After a 83-77 victory over Virginia Tech, Bzdelik is now 2-27 in conference road games.  For Duke, it was about bringing the same defensive intensity and focus on the road that...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/20 with Game Sim Predictions

Notre Dame's victory on Sunday over Virginia Tech capped off an interesting weekend of basketball around the ACC.  Outside of Clemson (4-1) and UNC's (1-3) records I can't say anyone necessarily surprises me much.  Syracuse earned their right as the 1st place team in the ACC with a close win over Pitt in the Carrier Dome.  Duke may have turned the proverbial corner...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/10 with Game Sim Predictions

FSU went to Death Valley and pulled out a good conference road win over Clemson 56-41.   In a lot of ways, the matchup confirmed where the two teams stand in the league this year.  While FSU has been somewhat inconsistent this season, winning by 15 on the road over any ACC opponent says a lot about your team.  On the other hand, Clemson had been impressive early on against a...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/9 with Game Sim Predictions

Consistency is seriously lacking in the ACC this season.  Virginia's up and down season is currently trending upward after big conference wins over FSU and now Wake Forest.   On the other hand, UNC is the shining example for the Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde syndrome, as they lost at home to Miami last night to drop to 0-2 in conference play.  North Carolina drops to 0-2 in conference...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/20 with Game Sim Predictions

First day of vacation for me so forgive me for this being short.  Over the next couple weeks I'll likely skip a few days or give you quick posts.  Last night, Duke downed UCLA 80-63 in Madison Square Garden.  To my eye, it was easily Duke's best defensive performance of the season especially considering the opponent.  You can see Duke's offensive and defensive efficiencies...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/17 with Game Sim Predictions

Duke and Georgia Tech picked up wins on Monday night and neither game was particularly close.  I traveled over to Cameron Indoor with my wife and two kids and got to take in the game and it gave me a slightly different perspective on this Duke team.  The concern and "want to" to be a good defensive team was seen on their faces between plays.  You could see the intensity...

Really interesting slate of games in the ACC and nationally today as we're finally through with exam week and can get back into a full college hoops schedule.  The marquee games in the ACC feature Kentucky at UNC and Notre Dame vs Indiana.  The ACC should win the other matchups. Nationally, Arizona/Michigan, Cincinnati/Xavier, Purdue/Butler, BYU/Utah all face off as well. ...

Notre Dame defeated Bryant in the only ACC game on Monday night.  The Irish won 70-59 but Bryant proved to be a scrappy team and the game was much closer throughout.   The big news on Monday though was that Wake Forest has hired their next football coach, Dave Clawson of Bowling Green.  Make sure to follow BloggerSoDear.com for all of the updates on the hire.

The story on Saturday in the ACC was Florida State winning the ACC Championship with a 45-7 victory over Duke.  The Blue Devils kept the Noles scoreless for a quarter, but FSU settled down and handled business the rest of the way.  Next stop is Pasadena for FSU where they will play for the college football national championship against Auburn.

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/2

UNC took a trip to Birmingham on Sunday and UNC (Belmont edition) showed up apparently as the Heels lost 63-59 to UAB.   Miami came back to beat Arizona State 60-57 and Notre Dame handled Cornell easily 101-67. The Belmont Heels were unable to shoot FTs or put together any kind of coherent halfcourt offense.  It was defense and rebounding that dug the hole though, as UAB led by...

The story on Saturday had to have been on the football field. Whether it was Duke beating UNC to clinch the Coastal Division championship, Clemson losing to South Carolina, or a double OT game between Georgia and Georgia Tech, it was an eventful day in ACC football.  On the basketball court, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest laid a couple eggs, while NC State thankfully woke up in...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Just a quick post today since its a holiday.  Duke and Syracuse took care of business last night.  Syracuse won the Maui Classic with a 74-67 victory over Baylor.  Duke played as good as they have all season in spurts and as bad as they have all season at times but still managed to defeat Alabama 74-64.  They'll play #4 Arizona on Friday. ...

Is Pitt the best team in the ACC?  Metric polls like the SCACCHoops.com Power Poll (yet to be posted this season) and KenPom.com think the Panthers are.  Pitt rolled over Texas Tech 76-53 and the game wasn't really as close as the final score indicates.  Syracuse got a scare from Minnesota but made enough plays late to secure a 75-67 win.   Maryland also picked up a 56-52...
