First, before we get into the two wins that the ACC had last night, I wanted to give a quick update on the site.  Over the past 2 weeks, we've seen some slowness on the site, and we'd like to apologize.  We made some changes yesterday that should help with the problems, especially some of the timeout errors that users were seeing.  The good news for us is that we have more people on the site this year than ever before, and it is forcing us to adapt, and as Mike Krzyzewski has said, if you don't like change, then you don't like getting better.  So, we are trying to improve the site, but we need your help.  First, if you haven't already, fill out our 5 question survey which will help us get an idea of where we need to improve, and second, if you run into errors email us so we can get things fixed promptly.


Now, onto some ACC Hoops where Maryland and Wake Forest were in action last night.

Wake Forest 79 BYU 62 (Box Score)

Wake Forest beat a good BYU, thanks to 26 points and 5 steals from freshman Jeff Teague who went 8-10 from the floor, 8-8 from the free throw line, and made both three point attempts.  Helping out Teague was another freshmen, James Johnson (19 pts, 6 reb), while Chas McFarland (11 pts, 7 rebs) and Ish Smith (10 pts, 7 rebs, 4 asts) also finished in double-figures.

Dino Gaudio's team won with their defense, holding BYU to 36% shooting from the floor and forced 22 turnovers.  Keep in mind BYU is no slouch, as they have beat Louisville already this year and gave UNC a tough game in November.

Maryland 73 Holy Cross 48 (Box Score)

Maryland got 22 pts, 9 rebs, and 5 blks from James Gist and 17 pts, 6 rebs, 6 asts from Greivis Vasquez in their win over Holy Cross.  The Terps played without Eric Hayes who has an ankle injury that he sustained in practice on Sunday.  His status for the Terps game on Saturday will be evaluated later in the week.  Cliff Tucker started in Hayes place and finished with 10 pts and 4 asts.

The Terps also showed off a new look, yellow jerseys, a color the Terrapins haven't worn since the 1987-88 season.
