Clemson represents Duke's first ACC Tourney test

March Madness field set Villanova gets top seed AP

But one accomplishment has not been achieved, a win in the ACC Tournament. Villanova is one of the most balanced teams in the nation, and in the catbird seat for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

"We were determined to win the doubles point which allowed us to play loose in the singles", Louderback said. "They're just not. I think it says the fact that in six years, four tournaments, two Sweet 16s, two years missed the tournament (and) they're hunting for a new coach". "I do what I can when the opportunity is presented".

Syracuse opens ACC Tournament play on Wednesday, March 8, against a good Miami team. In the season's first eight and last eight games, he struggled to string together consecutive double-figure scoring games. We'll save the implications of that game for Thursday's Bracket Watch, assuming it happens, but the only way the Musketeers will be comfortable on Selection Sunday is if they upset the Bulldogs.

Tar Heels greats such as Billy Cunningham, Kenny Smith and Charlie Scott, the first black scholarship player at North Carolina, were native New Yorkers, as was Hall of Famer Frank McGuire, the coach who preceded Dean Smith in Chapel Hill.

Duke is 2-8 against the spread following a loss, 0-4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games, and 7-18-2 against the spread against the ACC. Clemson is 7-3 against the spread following a win, 14-6 against the spread in Wednesday games, and 4-9-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record. There will be plenty of action before they get involved though. It's hard to tell them apart, if you look at their resume, it's hard to tell them apart from Virginia.

The US economy in 2016 grew by 1.9% in the second quarter, which was weaker than expected at 2.1%, according to a revised report. Investors are betting that his policies on taxes and regulation will accelerate economic growth and boost corporate profits.

"I like their team". Freshmen Bruce Brown, Dewan Huell and DJ Vasiljevic have become invaluable contributors. They defend pretty well. "They have a lot of weapons".

Preview: Coach Rick Pitino's Cardinals have done well against one of the toughest schedules in the country this year - they now sit third in the RPI, one spot above North Carolina.

On Wednesday, UM meets the same Orange it lost to 70-55 on the road January 4. The version of the Orange that showed up against the Hurricanes closely resembles the team that went 10-7 down the stretch in the ACC, securing victories over nationally ranked teams like Florida State, Virginia and Duke.

UNC: The Tar Heels shot 51 percent and finished with a 15-5 edge in second-chance points. UM's top scorers, Reed and Ja'Quan Newton, were 5-of-23 from the floor. Giles and Bolden, both 6-10 centers, have been role players at best. Assistant coach Chris Caputo, an Elmhurst, Queens native, also played at Molloy. He finished with a season-low seven points on 3-for-12 shooting, with four turnovers. Game 6 victor - 9:30 p.m. Wins against Louisville at home and Virginia Tech on the road removed the only problem with their at-large profile, the lack of wins over tournament-quality competition. Syracuse is an extremely streaky team, and can catch fire and go cold at the snap of a finger, sometimes in the same game.
