Another week another collapse by Louisville. The team that I led the charge on just a five or so weeks ago has completely lost it’s confidence and forgotten how to close games.
Meanwhile, Pitt continues find new ways to fall apart as well, pissing away a game against Georgia Tech from the free throw line. The Panthers went 20-38 from the stripe in McCamish on Wednesday.
On the flip side, Miami seems to have found a bit of a groove, even if only at home. The Hurricanes protected home court yesterday against Georgia Tech, winning their third home game in a row.
Anyways, here they are, the new and improved ACC Basketball Report Power rankings. Also, North Carolina State fans, if you’re looking for Kinchen, Charlie and I stashed him in a bunker until the fact that he put UNC at #1 blows over.
We have a new #1. Welcome to the top North Carolina Tar Heels. Regardless of whether or not Zion played more than 30 seconds, Duke still has a roster that is loaded. If you struggle with a team that has five 5 stars and at least a couple 4 stars, there isn’t much I can do for you.
UNC: Ceiling is the damn roof. …I’m going to have to pen a formal apology when we lose to Cuse, won’t I? – Charlie
UNC number 1 with two impressive wins this week. I held down vomiting 4 times as I wrote that sentence out. – Kinchen
Virginia: A top five team as #3 in their own conference seems ridiculous, and while Virginia has beaten UNC, the Wahoos haven’t looked all that spectacular lately. – Mychal
The 6 teams playing on Tuesday in Charlotte currently are Boston College, Miami, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Notre Dame, and Pitt. All but BC have sub-.500 overall records. It’s been a while since I’ve seen that many bad ACC teams in the basement cellar. – Kinchen
I can’t put anyone other than Wake at the bottom. Even though Wake Forest owns the head to head, I just like Pitt more. – Mychal
Syracuse- Most frustrating team to try to judge. They’ll probably get the shit kicked out of them by Wake, but knock off either UNC or UVA too. – Charlie
Georgia Tech stays out of the basement due only to the ineptitude of Wake and Pitt. The Jackets couldn’t hit water if they fell out of a boat. They are shooting under 31% from deep in league play. – Mychal
I may have bailed on North Carolina State too early. Bold strategy to build a 13 point lead and then try to ride it out for 12 minutes without scoring, but they worked it out. Only “bad” loss is still just Wake. – Charlie
