Mike DeCourcy Of The Sporting News Talks ACC Hoops On The Mac Attack
Mac Attack 1/23/12: The Sporting News’ Mike DeCourcy tells the guys why he thinks North Carolina may be a better team after the Dexter Strickland injury, and weighs in on whether NC State is a tournament team.
Mike explains how the loss of Dexter Strickland will actually help UNC more then hurt them. They will now added a shooter to a lineup that desperately needed it. The starting lineup as it was before was not built for the type of high level offense they want to run.
Jim asks Mike how much his top 5 has been shaken up from the preseason. Mike say his top 5 is pretty much the same, but UCONN has been the biggest disappointment based on where their expectations were when the season began.
Mac asks Mike if FSU has a chance to finish ahead of UNC and Duke in the ACC. He says that FSU is good and playing better team basketball than they were earlier in the season, but it will take a big stumble from the Heels or Devils to finish above them. He also thinks NC State needs to be some quality teams down the stretch to prove they are worthy of NCAA consideration.
