Monday’s Check-Ins…Posted by rtmsf on December 14th, 2010
It was a light day all the way around, with only a handful of check-ins to present…
- ACC. With a solid road win over Maryland and topping a streaking Providence, BC takes the honors this week. The Terrapins led late in the game but couldn’t score for the last two and a half minutes. Maryland did not score a single point down the stretch. None. Still, Steve Donahue and his players deserve the credit. They took advantage of Maryland’s lack of a leader when it counted. The Eagles have a solid team that has the talent to finish second in the ACC.
- Big Ten. Gone is the subtlety of the ‘eleven’ hidden inside of the ‘Ten’ and, instead, we’ve got a conference logo that won’t have to change until they reach 20 teams. Despite the expansion to 12 teams, the Ten stays in the name. “Leaders” and “Legends” refer to the new names for the divisions in the 12-team conference. This isn’t little league, but all the Leaders will sound like they’re in first. I can’t wait till I have to write a sentence like ‘Ohio State now leads the Leaders by a game over Illinois,’ or some such nonsense.
- Big 12. The biggest story on Saturday has to be the debut of top ranked freshman Josh Selby in Lawrence when the Jayhawks take on the USC Trojans. The Jayhawks have been a pretty good team in the early going and all eyes will be on KU to see how the team dynamic changes with the addition of Selby.
