The Arrival of Kerry Blackshear Jr.

By Mychal Hunter Since I started ACCBR in September of 2017 few players have been the topic of my weekly podcast more often than Virginia Tech's Kerry Blackshear Jr. I often talk about how good the Hokies would be if the versatile 6'10 big man could simply stay on the floor. As we all know, …

By Charlie Manolakis Another exciting week of ACC basketball is ahead. Look for more later this week as we move towards another full slate Saturday, but fortunately we don't have to wait more than a few short hours to see the best conference back in action. Here's a preview of everything we can look forward …

What does Phil Cofer’s injury mean for the Seminoles?

By Mychal Hunter According to reports that came about on Wednesday, Florida State will be without last years leading scorer, Phil Cofer, with a foot "injury". Not a broken foot. Not a lisfranc injury. Just an injury. He averaged 12.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game last season. While some original reports said "indefinitely", Jeff …

Javin DeLaurier out with a foot injury

By Mychal Hunter According to reports, Duke junior center Javin DeLaurier will be out 10 days with a stress reaction in his foot.

The ACC is done but did it fail?

By Mychal Hunter So every team from the ACC has officially been eliminated from the the NCAA Tournament. 2018 marks the first time since 2014 that the ACC did not place a team among the last four standing. Given the rich history of the conference, one question needs to be answered: Did the conference fail …

ACC/B10 Challenge Night 3 Preview and Predictions

I really wish I could make money picking money lines. I am sometimes terrible against the spread but so far in this challenge I am 6-1 picking winners. I should have stuck with my gut feeling Virginia Tech would boat race Iowa. The Hokies look absolutely unstoppable at times. Georgia Tech pulled out a win …

Happy Belated Thanksgiving! ACC Power Rankings

-By Mychal Hunter Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday, I must admit. I find myself sweating for no reason for about five days afterwards. Whether or not that is a direct correlation to typically having about five days of turkey, gravy, stuffing and potatoes leftover has yet to be proven beyond a shadow of a …

Remember Pitt Fans, You Wanted This.

By Mychal Hunter We all have that friend right? The guy that for whatever reason just thinks he deserves the world without really doing anything to earn it. He's the same guy that asks "Who the fuck do you think you're talking too?", when you challenge him on something as insignificant as Pepsi being better …

Opening Night Game Notes, Who Impressed and “Jamie, We’re Sorry”

Anyone want to guess who impressed? Ha... There were 12 ACC games being played last night, so I had to do a bit of jumping around. Duke and UNC were never in any real danger so I kind of back burnered those teams, though UNI kept it respectable like I knew they would. Duke came …
