The NCAA has come down in a huge way vs. Syracuse today. This really kills Boeheim's legacy, as he's losing a ton of Ws and drops to 6th place. It will also be interesting to see how this affects the basketball team tomorrow, as SU plays NCState in their last game of the season, so it becomes their championship game. Also, the winner would tie the U, assuming the U beats VTech at noon (never a guarantee obviously), for 6th place in conference. Likely it is better for the U in jockeying for NCAA tnmt. position to see SU win, as NCState is likely a bubble team just like Miami. Of course, I just want to see Coach L wrap up another winning ACC and 20 W season. Anyone near Blacksburg willing to wear orange and green tomorrow? Don't suppose I should ask Terrance which one is the shark? BTW, nice personal article. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun.

http://scores.espn.go.com/ncw/recap?gameId=400766431 Not a good day for the Lady Canes, although to beat NDU twice in one season might have been too much to have asked.
Might as well note the Lady Canes have just advanced out of the 2nd round of the ACC tnmt, as the #8 seed beating #9 seed UVa today. Next up is the #1 seed and #2 team in the country, NDU. Big note for this game is that NDU has only lost two games this season. One was to #1 UConn, and the other was to the U. I'm assuming the Irish want revenge, but it's a huge matchup and a way to potentially truly make the U's season if they could take NDU down twice in one season. The game is tomorrow. The other key is that this team had played well throughout the season before hitting a slump late in the year, I think losing 4 conference games late and ending up .500 in the ACC. Heating up late is never a bad thing. UM hoops in both genders is well-coached and exciting.

For those who think the U has no chance to make it, we still have to keep in mind that they're tied for 6th in the ACC with NCState and Syracuse, are one game up on each in the overall W-L column, have beaten each and Syracuse has already removed itself from postseason contention. All 5 teams ahead in the ACC are ranked, and a win over VTech would get the U to a 20 W season. Main thing is to get the W on 3/7, and to increase the odds of pulling out of the bubble, win at least 1 game, preferably 2, in the conference tnmt.

And the U takes down Pitt tonight, in spite of missing injured players, 67-63, on the road and overcoming a 4 point halftime deficit. It moves them back to one game over .500 in the ACC, and makes the game of VTech that much bigger in giving them a fighting chance for the tnmt. Wow, did Duke take it to WFU tonight.

81-77 FINAL! CANES WIN! I hate to say that it doesn't fully feel like a W, but I'll take this vs. completely blowing it. 'Night all.

Mayes with the d rebound, Angel with the quick foul with 2 seconds left, not giving FSU a chance to set up a 3. Hits the first, misses the 2nd one on purpose, of course, and the U with the board! FSU fouls, with 2 second left, and Davon Reed hits 2 huge FTs for the 81-77 lead with 2 sec. left, and the U calls time. No fouls please!

R-Mayes hits both FTs, back to a 3 point game. Now 2 with another FT, Jekiri then hits 1 of 2, back to a 3 point game, FSU with one more chance as time is running out....

FSU foul, as expected, McClellan knocks both FTs down. 16 sec, Mayes misses a 3, FSU with the board, foul on Angel!!? Are you kidding me? Stops the clock with 16 sec. left and the U leading by 5.

Another FSU foul, Jekiri hits both FTs, FSU follows up with another 3, this time by Berwick. 76-73, 20 sec. left, TO FSU....and I was going to quit making the call with the 16 point lead a few min. ago. Hopefully still wins, but not playing and finishing like a tnmt. team.

As my distraction, Duke is up by 5 with 28 sec. left. FSU fouls again, 46 sec left, Angel to the line again, hits the first....misses the second. Mayes misses a 3..how about that. The U with the rebound, 42 sec. left.

Foul was on Davon Reed, 1:03 left, 73-70.

Make that 31, after hitting a 3 and the FT to make it a 3 point game, and now I'm getting nervous.

Angel hits the 2nd, now up by 7, leading the scoring for the U tonight. No need to mention who's killing it for FSU with 27.

1:17 left, FSU has to foul again, Angel to the line again, hits the first, 72-66.

Angel hits both FTs, then R-Mayes hits another 3 for FSU. Come on!

Layup by FSU, game now at 6 points with 1:28 left. Good time for a U timeout. Maybe someone will guard Ranthen-Mayes now?! Hitting 3s and layups non-stop the last few minutes.

This team can ruin a well-played half with a very sloppy 2 minutes, killing a game. Luckily they should escape this one, but this has been one of their problems all season. McClellan layup, but then another Mayes FSU 3, followed by a McClellan turnover, ball back to FSU. Ugly....

Lecomte misses a 3, FSU follows up with a layup, down to 7, and then a quick FSU foul with 2:51. Angel hits both FTs at least, after an ugly 2 minutes, and back to 9.
Toggle Commented Feb 26, 2015 on Four Play Starts Now! at Canespace
Make that Lecomte...take the neg. off of Angel. Another 3 pointer by a hot FSU shooter, and the lead is down to 9 with 3:30 left.

Jekiri hits the second FT only, a 15 point lead, FSU hits a quick 3, then Angel turns the ball over again. Ugh.

Foul on FSU at 3:42 left, and Duke and VT go to OT. That's gotta kill the Dukies!

About 4 min left, now a 17 point game after a dunk by Jekiri (left out a few plays prior). Then, Angel with the unnecessary foul on a 3 pt shot by FSU, 3 FTs, back to 14. Just under 4 min. left. Great game between Duke and VTech, 10 sec. left and tied.

FSU hits the layup, Angel responds with a jumpshot, still at 14, @5:30 left, FSU turnover, Davon Reed with the jumper, now 16, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say the U has come through tonight, playing a strong 2nd half against a team they gave the second half to last time in Tally.
Toggle Commented Feb 26, 2015 on Four Play Starts Now! at Canespace
Uceda hits the first, misses the 2nd, but the U now has its largest lead of the game at 14. FWIW, both teams are in the bonus.
