March Maddness Hits the ACC

After this weekend in the ACC, March Madness has clearly hit the ACC.

Saturday, dook was taking on NC State at the RBC Center in Raleigh. dook trailed NC State for the duration of most of the game, State had a convincing lead, so they thought, but dook chipped away at the lead and ultimately won the game with DeMarcus Nelson hitting free throws.

Also Saturday, Carolina traveled to Boston College. Tyrese Rice shot lights out with over 30 points in the first half for the Eagles. Carolina also overcame a huge deficit in the second half to ultimately defeat BC by ten with a final score of 90-80.

And this evening, Clemson traveled to College Park to take on Maryland. The Terps had a convincing double digit lead as well. Clemson came back in the last 11 minutes of the game and outscored the Terps 34-11, winning the game on a clutch 3 pointer and forcing some key turnovers at the end of the game.

Looks like it was not a good weekend to be the home school? dook and Carolina winning really does not affect the ACC too much, keeps them both tied for first in the league, but how does Maryland losing to Clemson affect the middle tier of the league? Well this win for Clemson sets them apart from everyone else, putting them at 9-5, Virginia Tech 8-6 and Maryland 8-7.

Definitely March Madness has begun in the ACC...
