ACC Roundup: League's upper echelon separating itself in a good way

Well, the ACC lost the ACC-Big 10 Challenge outright for the first time since 2011 last week, but the ACC's top teams have acquitted themselves very well so far. The bottom part of the league is concerning -- Wake Forest (4-5) and Virginia Tech (4-4) are bad, while Boston College (4-3) and Clemson (5-3) aren't much better and Florida State (4-4) has struggled.

ACC Basketball Preview: #10 Clemson Tigers

The Sports Bank’s college basketball season previews undergo a face lift this season. Rather than counting down the top 111 teams in 111 days, we will go conference-by-conference.  I’ve already counted down the Pac-12, Big 12, SEC, and AAC, and now turn my attention to the already new-look ACC. Without a whole lot of offensive firepower, the Clemson Tigers must once again...

Clemson coach confident Tigers can win this year

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson coach Brad Brownell didn't think last year's team was as bad as its next-to-last preseason projection in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Duke escapes to the ACC Semifinals

Let’s make one thing clear. The foul call on Rodney Hood was the right call. K.J. McDaniels threw his hip into Rodney Hood as he drove to the basket in the final seconds. Did Hood embellish? Sure, why not, but it was still a foul. Yes, we all hate when games end on whistles, but if it’s a foul, the referee needs to call it whether it’s five minutes into a game or five seconds...
