Remember when everyone was concerned about the fact that No. 1 Virginia was losing by 10 to No. 16 Coastal Carolina in the first half? Seems like a long time ago, doesn’t it? The Cavaliers pounded No. 8 seed Memphis on Sunday night, shooting 55.6% from the floor in a 78-60 win that felt like…

GAME OF THE DAY: Southeast Missouri 118, Murray State 115 (2OT) This OVC contest was wild, with the Redhawks holding on for the three-point win despite giving Murray State one last shot at the tie with less than a second remaining in the second extra session. How’d it happen? SEMO’s Nino Johnson was hit with…

The second half of Syracuse’s loss at Virginia on Saturday made it clear that the Orange need more from their reserves if they have any chance at winning at competing for a NCAA title. The Orange were tied 40-all to Virginia with 13:55 left after a Trevor Cooney three, but Virginia’s depth and balance led…

In their final non-conference game before the start of ACC play No. 12 Virginia turned in its worst performance of the season, losing 87-52 at Tennessee in a game that was never in doubt. On that evening Tony Bennett’s squad looked more like a team that would have to fight its way into the NCAA…

Conference play in the ACC has been interesting to say the least. With No. 4 Syracuse, No. 6 Duke and No. 19 North Carolina all being interesting teams to watch for varying reasons, those three teams received much of the attention nationally. But none of those three currently lead the ACC. The leader is No.…

The month of February is all about separation. For the best teams it’s about making a final push for a conference title, with an eye towards improving their seeding for the NCAA tournament as well. And for other teams, separation refers to the need to rack up quality wins in order to simply earn a…

GAME OF THE DAY: Virginia 48, No. 18 Pittsburgh 45 It wasn’t pretty, and the game lacked the offensive fireworks seen last night at the Carrier Dome, but the Cavaliers and Panthers staged a tough battle in Pittsburgh. The difference was a Malcolm Brogdon three-pointer with less than a second remaining, moving Virginia to 8-1…

If Super Bowl XLVIII is anything as exciting as this weekend of ACC basketball, we are in for a treat tonight.

If you’re No. 23 Duke or you’re Mike Krzyzewski, it doesn’t really matter how ugly it was. At this point, coming off of road losses to Clemson and Notre Dame in the span of a week, winning ugly means, quite frankly, that you won, and at this point, that’s something the Blue Devils are going…
