GREENSBORO, N.C. — When asked to reflect on his first season as a head coach earlier this week, Virginia Tech’s James Johnson could only admit the year went by a lot faster than he expected. But Wednesday, on the eve of his first ACC tournament, Johnson thought about pink shoes.

Back in February, when Virginia Tech was promoting Breast Cancer Awareness night, an equipment manager wanted to know if the Hokies’ players were allowed to wear them. The question prompted Johnson, 41, to contemplate his own career. Never before had he needed to consider such things during 19 years as an assistant, including the past five in Blacksburg, Va.

— Shaky, disappointing, up and down.

Asked to describe its fifth-place, 11-7 ACC finish, that’s what three N.C. State players came up with Wednesday after their final practice before the start of the ACC tournament.

Coach Mark Gottfried had a different answer.

"Good," the second-year coach said. "You know, not great, it has been good. I wish it would have been better and that falls on me, it’s my responsibility."
