You Had To See This Coming: ACC Eyeing NYC As ACC Tournament Site

You had to figure with Syracuse, Pitt, Notre Dame and Boston College in the ACC that the league muckity mucks would be scheming on a plan to hold the ACC Tournament in the Big Apple.

We say, all ahead full.  

The tournament, a logical staple of Greensboro, NC when the league was centered in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland made sense.  With the addition of Georgia and Florida to the mix (and Boston College) it made sense to have the tournament in Tampa and Atlanta although Boston was never in the mix.

But the Big (L)East made a mint in both actual coin and recruiting cred with its’ tournament annually held at Madison Square Garden and the Tobacco Road alliance would be cray not to envy the exposure.  Not to mention it’s New York City.

We have attended the tournament in Greensboro and it has a nice homie feel to it, but it feels a little like a commuter event.  The North Carolinians come and go and dump their tickets when their squad is eliminated.  The lone tournament we attended in Washington D.C. was big fun as everybody from every school but Maryland was all mixed in together with nowhere else to go for four days.  Bar hopping around the Verizon (then MCI) center was like attending various alumni association meetings.

Now a school official has told ESPN that the city that never sleeps is back on the conference’s radar. 
That said, the deadline to bid for the 2016-21 ACC tournaments was in September, and neither Madison Square Garden or the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn submitted a bid. Oops.

Bids were submitted by the usual suspects for the 2016-21 skein including:  Atlanta (Philips Arena), Charlotte, Greensboro, N.C., Tampa, Fla., and Washington D.C. The 2013-15 ACC men's basketball tournaments will be held in Greensboro.

Four cities -- Miami, Orlando, Pittsburgh and Atlanta (Georgia Dome), who all submitted a bid to host a tournament between 2016-21 -- have been eliminated from contention to host because the ACC has chosen to eschew domes in favor of traditional basketball arenas.  Good on the ACC.

Let’s see what happens moving forward...

Mickelson’s Putt For 59 Lips Out, And Other Earth-Shaking News

(Hunter Martin/Getty Images North America)

ESPN.com: Phil Mickelson pointed his putter at the cup and started to walk toward the hole, ready to celebrate golf's magic number.

Right at the end, though, the ball caught the right edge of the cup, curled 180 degrees to the other side of the hole and stayed out. A fraction of an inch turned cheers to gasps and cost him a 59 on Thursday in the first round of the Phoenix Open.


"Six feet to go, it was in the center," Mickelson said. "Three feet to go, it was in the center. A foot to go, it was in the center, and even as it's approaching the hole, I couldn't envision which side of the hole it could possibly miss on, and it ended up somehow just dying off at the end, catching the lip."

His caddie, Jim Mackay, fell to his knees and stayed there several seconds.

"He could not have hit a better putt," Mackay said.

Hump Night ACC Basketball: Nothing Weird Happened

(Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
#5 DUKE 75, WAKE FOREST 70 - Mason Plumlee scored a career-high 32 points and No. 5 Duke held off Wake Forest on Wednesday night to avoid another ACC road upset.  


The main takeaway:  What a difference a Kelly makes -On Jan. 5, Ryan Kelly scored a season-high 22 points and hit 5 of 7 threes s as Duke dispatched the young Deacons 80-62.  Last night it was a completely different story albeit with the same outcome.

Seth Curry added 21 points, including a tiebreaking three-pointer in the final minutes for the Blue Devils (18-2, 5-2 ACC).

Duke shot nearly 52 percent - despite going just 2-for-14 from 3-point range - and got a huge night from their senior big man to earn their first road victory of the season.

Freshman Devin Thomas had 15 points for the Demon Deacons (10-10, 3-5), who were denied their second upset of a nationally ranked state rival in eight nights.

Recap

#14 MIAMI 73, VIRGINIA TECH 64 - It was closer than the final score would indicate and just another example of how hard it is to win on the road this season in the ACC.

Shane Larkin scored 25 points and No. 14 Miami took command with a 13-2 second-half run t0 beat Virginia Tech for their eighth consecutive victory.

Kenny Kadji added 18 points and Trey McKinney-Jones had 12 for the Hurricanes (16-3, 7-0 ACC), who trailed by 12 in the first half before getting a 22-6 burst spanning halftime.

National scoring leader Erick Green led the Hokies (11-9, 2-5) with 30 points and Jarell Eddie had 14, but Virginia Tech's other scorers struggled after a fast start. The loss was the seventh in the last nine games for Virginia Tech.
 

THE GAME WINNER  (Mike Ewen/Tallahassee Democrat)
FLORIDA STATE 73, MARYLAND 71 - End-game situation: FSU needs a shot to win the game.  You MUST guard Michael Snaer.  You must.  Snaer is going to take that last shot and, as it has been for most of his career, he will make that shot...Defend accordingly.

Snaer made his second game-winning basket in a week, drilling a three-pointer with 1.1 seconds remaining to lift Florida State to a win over Maryland on Wednesday.

It was the second last-gasp three-pointer in seven days for Snaer, who also lifted the Seminoles to a 60-57 win on Jan. 24 when he banked in a 25-footer at the buzzer to beat Clemson. (Did he call it?)

Snaer now has made four triples to win games in the past 13 months. He also had two buzzer-beating treys last season to give Florida State wins over Duke and Virginia Tech.

Do you sense a pattern here?

Snaer had 19 points and Okaro White added 14 points for Florida State (12-8, 4-3 ACC), which had lost three of its last four games.

Maryland's Dez Wells scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half, shooting 8 of 12 from the floor. But the Terrapins fell short as Alex Len, who averages 13 points per game, scored a season-low four points.

ACC Tuesday Night Scoreboard: The Pattern Continues

HARRIS (AP Photo/Steve Helber)

Big wins, followed by big losses. N.C. State snaps a 13 game losing streak against rival North Carolina and then loses to Virginia on the road...C.J. Leslie was sick and Lorenzo Brown sprained his ankle to add to the Wolfpack’s woes...

VIRGINIA 58, #19 N.C. STATE 55 - The little things that Virginia coach Tony Bennett preaches about doing are starting to add up to regular victories, and the fact that his freshman-heavy team is starting to find its comfort zone is helping a great deal, too.

Joe Harris scored 22 points, seven during a game-ending 13-6 run, and Virginia's nationally ranked defense slowed No. 19 North Carolina State's ACC-best offense just enough for a victory Tuesday night, the Cavaliers' fourth straight victory.

One game after freshman Justin Anderson led the way for Virginia, fellow freshman Mike Tobey had a huge hand in the victory with 13 points and, more importantly against the long, athletic Wolfpack, seven rebounds and two blocked shots.

Akil Mitchell added 14 points and 12 rebounds for Virginia (15-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), including an 18-foot jumper that put them ahead to stay with 3:53 remaining, before the nation's No. 2 scoring defense (51.1) closed it out.

Recap

McDANIELS (AP Photo/Anderson Independent-Mail, Mark Crammer)
CLEMSON 63, GEORGIA TECH 60 - K.J. McDaniels scored 15 points, including two foul shots with 16 seconds left, as Clemson held on to defeat Georgia Tech on Tuesday night, its sixth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets.

The Tigers (12-8, 4-4 ACC) held an 11-point lead early in the second half, but the Yellow Jackets (11-8, 1-6) gradually chipped away. When Mfon Udofia made a free throw with 17.2 seconds left, Clemson's lead had shrunk to 61-60.

That's when McDaniels grabbed the inbounds pass, got fouled by Udofia and confidently made both ends of the 1-and-1 attempts. The Yellow Jackets had a chance to tie, but Brandon Reed's 3-point attempt from left of the basket was off the mark and Clemson won for the fourth time in its last six games this season.

Daniel Miller had a career-high 16 points and Kammeon Holsey 14 to lead Georgia Tech.

NORTH CAROLINA 82, BOSTON COLLEGE - P.J. Hairston ignited a first-half run and scored 14 points before he was taken off the court on a stretcher after a scary fall late in the opening half of North Carolina's win over Boston College on Tuesday night.

Hairston banged the back of his head on the floor after colliding with teammate Dexter Strickland. A North Carolina spokesman said he suffered a concussion, but was not going to be taken to the hospital.

James Michael McAdoo led North Carolina (14-6, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) with 17 points and 10 boards. Strickland added 14 points.

Olivier Hanlan scored 22 points, Ryan Anderson 16 and Patrick Heckmann 12 for the Eagles (9-11, 1-6).

Boston College lost its fifth straight game.

North Carolina, which entered its sixth straight week out of The AP Top 25 after spending 33 consecutive weeks ranked, opened a double-digit lead midway into the first half and coasted to the win despite losing Hairston.



Judge Rules NCAA Athletes' Suit Over TV Money Can Move Forward

NCAA OFFICIALS CONTEMPLATE THEIR MOST RECENT WOES  (Buddhika Weerasinghe/Getty Images AsiaPac)

A federal court judge Tuesday dismissed a motion by the Suits From Indianapolis (formerly Kansas) to o prevent football and men's basketball players from legally pursuing a cut of live broadcast revenues.  Obviously the ruling monkeys with our favorite ruling body’s archaic and monopolistic economic model. Imagine the NFL where the players get room and board and advanced degree they may or may not ever use) while the team owners and the league made billions...?

Judge Claudia Wilken issued her ruling Tuesday, rejecting the NCAA's motion that players in the antitrust suit led by former UCLA star Ed O'Bannon should be precluded from advancing their lawsuit on procedural grounds. The original suit was filed way back in 2009 and has been moving slowly through the court system.

The NCAA objects to the players amending their lawsuit last year to claim a share of all television game revenues, not just those from rebroadcasts.

ACC Players Of The Week

SCOTT (Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)
Miami's Durand Scott has been named the ACC Player of the Week, while Wake Forest's Devin Thomas has been selected the league's Rookie of the Week.

In earning ACC Player of the Week honors for the second time this season, Scott averaged 18.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists as the Hurricanes won twice, defeating No. 1 Duke and in-state rival Florida State by an average of 25.5-point win margin.

In Wednesday's 90-63 win against the Blue Devils, Scott had 25 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 36 minutes of playing time. The Bronx, N.Y., senior was 9-of-14 (.643) from the field, 3-of-4 from behind the arc and 4-of-5 at the line. In Sunday's win against the Seminoles, Scott totaled 11 points, four assists and two turnovers as the Hurricanes improved to 6-0 in the ACC with a 71-47 victory.

Thomas averaged 16.5 points, 13.5 rebounds, 4.5 blocks and 2.0 steals per game while shooting .565 percent from the field in Wake Forest's two games last week.

On Tuesday, the Harrisburg, Pa., freshman led the Deacons to an 86-84 upset of No. 18-ranked NC State with 25 points, 14 rebounds, four assists, four blocks, and three steals. Thomas hit on 10-of-13 from the field and pulled down nine offensive rebounds, which ties for the third-highest single-game total in school history.

In Saturday's 82-62 loss at Georgia Tech, Thomas came up just short of his second straight double-double, finishing with eight points and a game-high 13 rebounds to go along with a season-high five blocks. Six of his 13 boards came on the offensive end. 

ACC Sunday Night Basketball

KENNI KADJI (Hector Gabino/El Nuevo Herald)
#25 MIAMI 71, FLORIDA STATE 47 - Trey McKinney Jones scored 15 points Sunday for the Miami Hurricanes, and the Atlantic Coast Conference leaders won their seventh game in a row by beating Florida State.

The blowout victory before a capacity crowd was the second in a row for the 25th-ranked Hurricanes, ensuring a significant jump in Monday's poll. They drubbed No. 1 Duke on Wednesday.
Miami (15-3, 6-0) is off to its best start in the conference, alone atop the standings, and is 9-0 at home. Florida State (11-8, 3-3) fell to 0-3 this season against ranked teams.

The Seminoles endured repeated long scoring droughts against Miami's man-to-man defense and shot a season-low 31 percent, the fourth time in the past five games they've been under 42 percent. Their starters went 7 for 26 and totaled 19 points.

Miami has not allowed an opponent to shoot better than 50 percent from the field this season. Michael Snaer went 2 for 5 and was held to four points, 10.5 below his average. The Seminoles went 3 for 17 from 3-point range.

Recap

JENNINGS (AP Photo/The Independent-Mail, Mark Crammer)
CLEMSON 77, VIRGINIA TECH 70  - Clemson received career-high scoring efforts out of Milton Jennings (28) and Damarcus Harrison (19) to propel the Tigers to a victory over Virginia Tech in front of 7,980 fans at Littlejohn Coliseum. The win improved the Tigers to 11-8 overall, 3-4 in ACC play. Tech fell to 11-8 overall and 2-4 in the league.

Jennings added 14 rebounds to tie a career-high in that category. The 6-foot-9 Jennings went to the line 18 times and made 16 free throws - the most by any Clemson player since the late Butch Zatezalo made 16 against Wake Forest in 1969. It tied for the second-most made in school history. Zatezalo made all 17 attempts versus Maryland in 1968.

Harrison scored 19 points in Sunday's game, eclipsing his previous high of 15 against SC State last month. The sophomore made 6-of-10 shots, including 3-of-7 from long distance. Clemson made 10-of-21 three-point baskets, its most since making 12 against UTEP in the Old Spice Classic in November.
