ACC Basketball Update(1/3)

Monday

  • Wake Forest won big over East Carolina on New Year’s Day, 81-65.  I cannot imagine anyone actually showing up to watch this game.

Tuesday

  • My alma mater, UNC Greensboro came very close to knocking off NC State at home.  UNCG was up three with five seconds left when Gavin Grant hit a three to tie the game.  UNCG then chose to call timeout instead of taking advantage of the defensive chaos which took away a made three that was shot a hair after the timeout was called.  Having been at UNCG during the Mike Dement years the first time around, I can tell you he is not that good of a coach.  Anyway, UNCG missed a shot to win the game and having squandered the chance to win the game they lost in overtime, 95-93.
  • Duke beat Temple 73-55 with sophomore forward David McClure who came in averaging 0.5 rebounds somehow grabbing 12 boards.
  • Miami knocked off UMass by one, 72-71.  Miami gets Wake Forest in four days which may be the last game they win until they play Wake again in mid-February.
