Virginia blows by Tennessee State 79-36

Tonight’s 79-36 win lacked any real drama, so one was left to manufacture some in order to keep things interesting. In order: Would Justin Anderson ever miss? Would we double up our hapless opponent, or would CTB pump the brakes? Would everyone who played score? Would Maleek Frazier get his first career points? The answers: No. Justin made all seven of his...

ACC Morning Linkfest 11/25/2014

It has been rare in the past few days, but the ACC had a perfect night on Tuesday.  Believe it or not, the best win went to Clemson who defeated a top 100 Pomeroy team, LSU, 64-61.  A new star may be emerging for Clemson, as freshman Donte Grantham got a start and finished with 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals in the win.  After losing to Winthrop and Gardner-Webb...

Pitt defeats Chaminade in Maui Invitational Opener, 81-68

Pitt got back on track on Monday night with an 81-68 win over Chaminade. With the victory, they will advance to play the winner of BYU and San Diego State on Tuesday night. Mike Young was clearly the best player on the court with 27 points and 15 rebounds. What was particularly refreshing was to not only see the team repeatedly go to him when many players weren't shooting well, but...

Can UVA repeat as ACC Champs? Outside of Charlottesville, most think not

A fluke? A fluke?! You’ve got to be kidding me. I’ve heard many refer to Virginia’s 2013-2014 season using these exact words, or others very similar. And while they are ranked around #10 on average in top 25 polls right now and have even been picked to win it all by a couple of media members, I never seem to hear about Virginia when talking to fans about ACC title contenders...

Virginia downs Miami 30-13

Historically, the U is used to the defense being on their side. Unfortunately, Scott Stadium is not a Coral Gables courtroom, and a dominant Cavalier defense teamed with tough running from Khalek Shepherd and Taquan Mizzell for CML’s fourth win over Miami in five tries (versus seven in 34 against everyone else in the ACC), a win keeps both our postseason dream and London’s hopes...

ACC Morning Linkfest 11/23/2014

While Duke picked up a win in the Coaches versus Cancer Classic, Saturday wasn't exactly a banner day for ACC basketball.  FSU took another blackeye losing to Providence by 26 points while Virginia Tech lost to Appalachian State at home on a last second shot.  That said, at least no one called a timeout without having any. Duke defeated Stanford 70-59 behind the continued solid...

Duke Beats Stanford 70-59 to win Coaches vs Cancer Classic

Duke emerges as the Champions of the Coaches Versus Cancer classic by defeating a tough and gritty Stanford team coached by Johnny Dawkins. Duke would win the game by 11 but seemingly controlled the game from the tip. Stanford would make various runs but never got the lead closer than 8 in the second half. One time recruit Chasson Randle scored 22 in the losing effort for the...

Pitt bowl hopes still alive with win over Syracuse

Pitt needed a win on Saturday to keep its bowl hopes alive and they got it with a 30-7 drubbing of Syracuse. While I expected the Panthers to win, I figured the Orange would put up a little more of a fight. The Syracuse offense struggling wasn't a huge surprise since Syracuse has struggled mightily on that side of the ball. The Orange defense, however, was a bit easier to contend...

ACC Network discussions pick up steam?

John Swofford likes to keep things close to the vest, and then all at once something happens. Discussions on an ACC Network have been quiet the last few months. The only noteworthy news about the ACC Network has been a couples of isolated comments from Swofford the last few months, that negotiations were going well with ESPN. That is until this week, when Swofford and Florida State...

Pitt basketball falls Hawaii 74-70

Pitt loses their first game of the year. No, it wasn't a misprint, or a bad dream -  this actually happened. Pitt lost to Hawaii 74-70 early Saturday morning (or, locally, late Friday night).  Obviously we don't have much to go on with this one other than the box score since it wasn't on TV.  If you want a little more advanced reading on the game, Paul Zeise of the...

Virginia takes GW's punch and hits back harder

Last night was not a great example of the beauty of basketball, but it did allow us to flex our collective muscles in the face of a little adversity. The offense was dead in the first half. The ball movement seemed a step behind (and didn’t push through to a good shot), there was too much dribbling, and every possession seemed to end in someone trying to produce points out of an...

Duke Cruises By Temple 74-54

The Duke Blue Devils won by 20 against a scrappy Temple Owl teams but it won ugly. Duke did not shoot the ball well against the owls, shooting 39% for the game and 30.4% from 3 point range. Duke would have to find other ways to put away the Owls and defensively the Devils stepped up to the tune of forcing 17 turnovers. Duke would turn those turnovers into 22 points. Duke would...

Clemson's just Webber'd a basketball game

I'm not one to write Clemson basketball game recaps.  The team just hasn't been very good in recent memory, and readers just aren't that interested in reading about bad teams.  That said, Clemson made this quick write-up necessary today when they Webber'd a game.  That's right, they lost to Gardner-Webb today when they were called for a Technical Foul calling...
