DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — It’s been a wild week for No. 5 Duke. After losing to their most hated rivals, the Blue Devils took down the No. 1 team.
A look at five things to watch in the Atlantic Coast Conference this week:
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Marcus Paige and his North Carolina teammates have endured so many wild swings — big wins, surprising losses, NCAA drama — that no one can blame their Hall of Fame coach for wondering what’s next.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — To a man, the Boston College Eagles were convinced of one thing: DK was looking down on them.
ATLANTA (AP) — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski insists there has been no talk of big games still to come this week.
ACC Hoops analyst Dan Bonner joined the Mac Attack to discuss Round 1 of Duke-UNC being snowed out, Scared Coach K, the Roy Williams can’t coach crowd, Roy adapting on the fly, Duke’s growth and NC State’s bubble status.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — North Carolina faced an unlikely 15-point deficit with one of its top players having an off night against Florida State on Monday. Maybe just as unlikely was Kennedy Meeks stepping up to save the day.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Forced to become North Carolina’s go-to guy on the perimeter, Marcus Paige has kept finding ways to up his game in the second half.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Seven games separate No. 1 Syracuse from an undefeated regular season. Maybe it will be a lucky seven after a buzzer-beater kept the Orange on the course to perfection.
Duke assistant basketball coach, Jeff Capel, joined the Mac Attack to talk about the Blue Devils season and the upcoming matchup against the Tar Heels.
