ACC Morning Linkfest 3/3/2015 with Game Sim Predictions

Congrats to Virginia for clinching their second consecutive ACC regular season title.  The Cavaliers did it in sort of an odd way.  Consider this graphic from ESPN's broadcast from around 16 minute mark in the 2nd half. Virginia scored 2 points in their first 17 possessions, 10 of which ended in a turnover.  Over the next 17 possessions, they scored 38 points.  Bizarre.  Ultimately...

The Chronicle exposes the "The next big Duke scandal"

When Rasheed Sulaimon was dismissed from the team everyone was shocked.  Rumors swirled around social media wondering if Sulaimon was a bad teammate, if grades were the issue, or perhaps something worse.  It seems that reality falls in the something worse category. Duke's student newspaper, The Chronicle, is reporting that there are allegations of sexual assualt surrounding Sulaimon...

Pitt basketball road woes continue with loss on Sunday

It's not surprising for college basketball teams (or teams in any sport, really) to have more success at home than on the road. Pitt, however, has shown more extremes than most in regards to that. Despite not having a great season by their standards, the Panthers' home advantage at The Pete has continued to hold to form. Pitt has an incredible 14-2 record at home, including wins...

ACC Bubble Analysis for March 1, 2015

It’s officially March… That means March madness. Which ACC teams are locks and which are still trying to get into the Big Dance? In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses outside the RPI top (100) is considered a bad loss, and outside the RPI (150) are even more damaging. I’m not counting future results only...

Freshmen Ineligibility: 5 Reasons Why the Rule Isn't Needed

With all the latest rumblings I’ve heard about freshmen ineligibility, I’d figure I’d take a stab at it with 10 reasons why it isn’t necessary at all. While it’s only being considered by the Big Ten conference currently, eventually, talk will go to if all conferences should institute the rule. 1. Instituting a freshmen ineligibility rule ignores the red shirt and grey shirt...

Who's Hot, Who's Not? ACC Basketball Edition - Feb. 26, 2015

With three games left on the #ACC basketball schedule for each team, the dust is beginning to settle. As an #ACC basketball fan, if you’ve been following games, despite overall records, the #ACC conference has a bright future ahead of itself. If the #ACC ever needs a slogan, I think it should be “Are you shocked too? Get used to it.” Virginia (26-1 Overall, 14-1 Conference...

Is Xavier Rathan-Mayes a One-and-Done?

Short answer…no. What Xavier Rathan-Mayes did Wednesday night against Miami was nothing short of amazing, arguable the greatest 4:38 of basketball performed by a single player that I’ve seen. With the Miami Hurricanes holding an 18-point lead with 4:38 remaining, Rathan-Mayes delivered 30 points, including 26 in a row. At one point, he connected on eight straight baskets...

Blue Devils escape Blacksburg with overtime win

After falling behind 15-4, “two wins in the ACC” Virginia Tech Hokies rolled, scoring on 16 of their next 18 possessions against a weak Duke man defense, to open up a surprising 39-37 lead at the half. In the second, the Hokies nailed a pair of threes from the corner (a shot that was there all night), building an eight-point lead early. However, at the 12-minute mark, Coach K...

Something not adding up with Swofford's ACC Network comments

When I saw a link today from the Courier-Journal with comments John Swofford made on the possibility of an ACC Network, I thought – oh some new information. Not only were the comments not new information, they could have been from 2013. What are the prospects of an all-ACC network? My answer to that really won’t change for a while. We are taking a look at that with ESPN, who...

Notre Dame's Cupcakes Problem

Mamma always said, you can’t live off of just junk and the same is true for college basketball teams looking to get high seeds in the NCAA Tournament. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish can kiss a two-seed officially goodbye. Don’t get me wrong, after the 30-point loss to Duke, a two-seed was already a long-shot, but after a home loss to Syracuse, the best Notre Dame can hope for...

Pitt holds on against Boston College for 71-65 win

Before the game, Brian over at BC Interruption predicted Pitt would win ugly over Boston College. That's essentially what happened after a six-point Panthers win on Tuesday. It didn't have to be that way, really. Pitt was cruising early and jumped out to a commanding 35-20 lead with under three minutes left in the first half. For a while, a 20-point win looked like it could be in...
