The ACC regular season race

Recommended Posts

Duke upheld its end of the bargain against Wake Forest, despite allowing Wake to whittle a 23 point deficit down to 6 with a few minutes to play. This team really seems to lose concentration at times. Still, 13-2 in league play and 8-0 on the road is nothing to sneeze at. Bring on the Heels!

They have blown a ton of big leads this year.

They stop attacking and get complacent.

It has a lot to do with the lack of a real leader on the floor.

The good news that they have done this vs weaker teams, not the better ones for the most part...and they will be playing better teams from here on out.

Now, I do worry a little bit in those first 2 rounds...I think Duke ends up a 2 seed in the NCAA tourney(lose to UNC) and the 15 seeds are better and better...if you aren't careful and allow one of these smaller schools in the game late, you could get in trouble. Same thing for round 2 but I wouldn't expect them to be blowing out the team in round 2.

The other side to this is it they are winning these games and showing something late and that is important.

Duke is better now than I thought they'd be 4-6 weeks ago. The main difference is that Rivers is more under control and has learned how to penetrate and make good decisions about when to kick out. They are still limited defensively and I don't know what has gotten into Mason Plumlee but he has been way off his game lately (Miles, on the other hand, is playing the best he ever has).

I think UNC will get its revenge this weekend because they just have too many weapons inside. Duke has a chance if they have a good night shooting 3-pointers, and no chance if they don't.

Their defense is very much improved but you are right about them being limited because of their perimeter athleticism.

They need Dawkins to stop being a giant douche and be more consistent.

What an odd season for VT. 10 of their last 14 games have been decided by 2 points or less, or in OT.

Greenberg won't have much to complain about come Selection Sunday this year, at least.

Being a VT basketball fan has got to be a huge exercise in frustration. Greenberg seems like a good coach, they usually have some talent, they always seem to play hard...yet they always seem to fall a little short of their goals.

    • That is up to Mullins.   He is on the 40 man roster.  He will be in ST.   If he hits well  at Norfolk then he could be promoted to the O's.
    • He should’ve. Probably would’ve lashed it for a double. 
    • I'll take a crack .....Harvey has a 97mph + fastball that's deemed plus and a plus curveball and Hader. Hader has a low 90s fastball with a lot of movement. The reason he's been so successful is that his slider drastically improved from 2017 to 2018 in regards to his control.
    • Agreed ...but he looked much better the last start as well.
    • Ponies Stave Off Baysox, 4-3 Ripken records first Double-A home run.   BOWIE, Md. – Andres Gimenez drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to lead the Binghamton Rumble Ponies to a 4-3 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 2,236 at Prince George's Stadium Tuesday night.   Bowie (39-20) jumped out to a quick lead with a run in the first inning. A double and a flared single put runners on the corners for Carlos Perez, who beat out a potential double play to drive in Ryan McKenna on a fielder's choice.    Binghamton (26-36) tied the game on a bases-loaded walk in the second inning and took a 2-1 lead on a throwing error from Perez in the third inning. The hosts, however, answered in the bottom half of the third.   RHP Zach Lee had retired nine in a row until Jesse Valentin flared a single to shallow right-center field. One pitch later, Ryan Ripken lined a missile off the top of the right field billboards for his first career Double-A home run and a 3-2 lead.    Gimenez launched his seventh home run of the season to right-center field to immediately re-tie the game in the fifth inning, and then put the guests ahead with a RBI single in the eighth inning off reliever Zach Muckenhirn.    The Baysox and Rumble Ponies conclude their season series Wednesday afternoon at 12:05 p.m., when RHP Cody Sedlock (1-1, 2.95 ERA) seeks his second straight win against RHP Tommy Wilson (4-5, 4.57 ERA) during Summer Camp Day at the ballpark.
