ACC Power Rankings 12/22/17. Same #1 but a new #15.

By Mychal Hunter I omitted last weeks installment of the power rankings because there hadn't been a lot of games played in the period. It has been pretty thin this week as well but they need to be updated. There isn't a ton of movement from the 12/8/ rankings but there was one major development. …

ACC goes 9-1 on Monday/Tuesday. Wake wins 6th straight, FSU recovers, GT continues to slide

By Mychal Hunter Right now this conference is similar to a 90's action movie. The plot sucks, you can almost see any twists and turns on the road ahead but the fight scenes are incredible. Sometimes though, those movies had crazy endings that we never saw coming. What do we know? We know that Wake …

Clemson and UNC score big wins, Josh Okogie returns.

By Mychal Hunter The potential was there to hang some pretty nice pelts on the wall this weekend as the ACC came back from finals to play teams from the SEC, A10, AAC, Big XII and B10. UNC, Virginia, Clemson and Louisville were able to capitalize, while FSU, Notre Dame and NC State all stumbled. …

Huge weekend on the horizon for the ACC

By Mychal Hunter The conference in currently on a three day hiatus for finals with no games scheduled until Saturday the 16th. As a whole the conference has performed well as far as records go but this weekend provides the opportunity for a couple of programs to show they are for real. #22 Florida (6-3) …

BC overcomes slow start, avoids let down.

By Mychal Hunter An ACC team catching eleven at home against a 1-9 Ivy League team? Easy fucking money right? Columbia visited Chestnut Hill this evening for Boston College's first game of the post "We Beat Duke" era and had me a little nervous for about half of the first half. I had never seen …

Louisville looks better, but I want to see them on the road.

By Mychal Hunter Maybe I am underselling Indiana but I don't think the Hoosiers are that good. I laid the points in the Duke game and lost, even then I was not convinced. Louisville may have been a team I was overselling. It is possible that Pitino's persona that was fueled by bathroom sex, stripper …

BC comes out scorching. Upsets #1 Duke

By Mychal Hunter The only thing better than watching Duke lose is watching Duke lose to someone they have no business losing to. The only thing better than that is sitting around a poker table with a couple of Duke fans while they do it. Boston College was able to defend their home court today …

ACC Power Rankings 12/8/17

I thought this week would be easier, I even mentioned in yesterdays post that this out of conference schedule was starting to clear things up for me a bit. Then I started taking notes and looking at it a bit more. The most difficult part of doing these power rankings is separating teams that are …

UNC, VT, FSU continue to roll. Louisville gets back on track. GT continues to slide

By Mychal Hunter The ACC had a five game slate on "anything can happen Wednesday", which was fairly innocuous, or so I  thought. The highest ranked opponent in KenPom was Radford, which is now 181st in the country. Of the five games on the slate only one team, Georgia Tech, was playing on the road. …

ACC stumbling a bit coming off Big 10 domination

By Mychal Hunter Last week was a good week to be a fan of the ACC. The conference stood tall and destroyed the Big 10 in the annual inter-conference challenge, while the Pac-12 was still finding its footing with Arizona, Oregon  and USC faltering. The SEC, Big 12 and Big East all look like very …
