Atlantic Coast Conference
The 2013-2014 NBA season got underway last Tuesday night as the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat headlined opening night in the Association. On Thursday, the Atlantic Coast Conference sent out a release informing the media that sixty-seven players from current ACC schools were listed on NBA team rosters on opening night.
Wednesday featured the ACC’s Operation Basketball which was essentially the ACC Men’s basketball’s media day for 2013. Players and coaches from all 14 ACC schools gathered in downtown Charlotte with the credentialed media for a day full of interviews.
Years from now few people will remember who brought tight end Greg Olsen to Charlotte to play for the Panthers. The new father of twins should be around for a number of years but the man who was instrumental in his acquisition will be watching him from afar.
Luke Kuechly may be the most polished linebacker to come out of Boston College or anywhere else for that matter. Aggressive yet technically sound, Kuechly stepped right in as a starter for the Carolina Panthers when they opened the 2012 regular season in Tampa.
