ACC Morning Linkfest 1/31

Two of the ACC's contenders are playing teams that are in need of impact wins tonight.  Virginia hosts Clemson and the Tigers will be playing without forward Milton Jennings who was suspended indefinitely for academic reasons.  UNC travels west to Winston-Salem to play Wake Forest in another test of Roy Williams ability to motivate. 

Jennings absence will make stopping Mike Scott even more difficult for Clemson, but the matchup I'm curious to watch is whether or not Virginia can slow down Andre Young.  Young is the core of the Clemson offense and most likely he will be guarded by Virginia's Jontel Evans.  If Young gets his shot going, Clemson can beat anyone.

UNC's focus will be on two players, CJ Harris and Travis McKie.  For Wake Forest, you can't focus on one player in particular, but simply on challenging every single shot.  Georgia Tech really played off Kendall Marshall in transition and Marshall picked the Yellow Jackets apart.  If I'm Jeff Bzdelik, I'm taking a different approach and keeping a hand in Marshall's face at all times, see if you can limit his vision.
