Historically, the U is used to the defense being on their side. Unfortunately, Scott Stadium is not a Coral Gables courtroom, and a dominant Cavalier defense teamed with tough running from Khalek Shepherd and Taquan Mizzell for CML’s fourth win over Miami in five tries (versus seven in 34 against everyone else in the ACC), a win keeps both our postseason dream and London’s hopes of keeping his job alive.
While Duke picked up a win in the Coaches versus Cancer Classic, Saturday wasn't exactly a banner day for ACC basketball. FSU took another blackeye losing to Providence by 26 points while Virginia Tech lost to Appalachian State at home on a last second shot. That said, at least no one called a timeout without having any.
Duke emerges as the Champions of the Coaches Versus Cancer classic by defeating a tough and gritty Stanford team coached by Johnny Dawkins. Duke would win the game by 11 but seemingly controlled the game from the tip. Stanford would make various runs but never got the lead closer than 8 in the second half. One time recruit Chasson Randle scored 22 in the losing effort for the Cardinal.
Dave Clawson earned his first ACC victory as Wake Forest's head coach when the Demon Deacons defeated the Virginia Tech Hokies 6-3. It was a sweet victory for Wake Forest fans who had not seen their team victorious since a September 20th win over Army. Regulation ended with a score of 0-0 after Wake Forest kicker Mike Weaver missed a 37-yard field goal as time expired that would have won the game for the Deacs. It was his third miss of the day, even though he had only missed one field goal all season entering today's game. Weaver recovered, however, when he drained a 49-yard field goal in the first overtime and a 39-yarder to win the game in double overtime.
