Court Vision: Duke shows unselfishness, offensive flair in Furman blowout

DURHAM, N.C. -- Just three days removed from its three-game road trip, No. 4 Duke (6-0) dominated Furman (1-3) by a final of 93-54, and the only drama was if Duke would cover the over 40-point spread, the most it had been favored by in well over a decade (it didn't).

ACC Coming Attractions: ACC-SEC showdowns highlight final weekend

Ah yes, it's the one week a year where ACC fans go to curl up in the fetal position and die, otherwise known as the week where the in-state rivalries between ACC and SEC teams have -- at least, of late -- been dominated by the SEC. Florida State-Florida is an exception to that, as the Seminoles have risen back to prominence and the Gators have fallen down several pegs (FSU has won...

ACC Power Rankings: Head-scratching results muddle the league's middle tier

With only season-finale games against rivals -- both in-conference and out-of-conference -- looming, the ACC has to bounce back from what was a pretty tough weekend, all things considered.

The ACC has taken a number of not great losses over the past few days, and while this wouldn't have been the worse of that bunch by a long shot, it wouldn't have been good, either. The better part of NC State's non-conference schedule...

East Carolina WR Hardy breaks FBS career receptions record

After a late-season downswing, the East Carolina Pirates' dreams of breaking into a major FBS bowl fell off a couple weeks ago.
