College Basketball: Maryland Virginia, Virginia Tech North Carolina State, ACC struggles and more college basketball -
What can they do to get to a 4 of 5 seed? Tough question because the landscape shifts every day and it will remain fluid. But if you take a look at teams in line for 4 or 5 seeds now -- say Wake Forest or a Baylor. One difference is that those teams have three or four top 50 victories. But another I see is that those teams have seven or eight wins over top 100 teams. I do think this is an issue for Maryland, which has only won four games against top 100 competition.

It’s early but we’re asking, is Tech an NCAA tournament team? | Tech
He knows things get no easier with three more ACC road games at Wake Forest, at Maryland and at Clemson. (Tech’s home schedule is potentially a little friendlier with games against North Carolina, Boston College and Virginia Tech – but you can’t assume that, either).

My Take on Wake - The Battle of the `Staches’ |
Chas told me after the Miami game he’d been growing his for a few weeks. I checked him out after Tuesday’s game against BC and it looked like he’s got a ways to go. Then I noticed the growth above Farouq’s upper lip and couldn’t resist. "Who’s got the better mustache, you or Chas?‘’ I asked. "Oh I think Chas does,‘’ he replied. "You’ve been working on yours. How long have you had yours going?‘’ I asked. "Just a little bit. Mine doesn’t grow as fast as Chas’,‘’ he said. The only way to have a true contest, obviously, would be for us to all start clean-shaven. I wouldn’t even mind giving both Chas and Farouq a couple of months head start. So here’s the challenge. If Wake reaches the Final Four, I’ll shave my mustache along with my beard. Then I’ll grow only my mustache back until Chas’ graduation in May, at which time we will declare a winner.
