With the ACC season just 9 days away, let's take a trip around the ACC and see what's in the headlines.

Leonard Hamilton is Ready to Run

Florida State is without Al Thornton this year, and as a result Leonard Hamilton sees a change of philosophy this season.  FSU wants to push the ball down the court to look for easy baskets, but if they get an a halfcourt set, expect the 'Noles to take their time.  FSU will be implementing a new halfcourt offense that results in less sets and more motion.  One other interesting note, is that freshman center, Soloman Alabi, had a stress fracture in his leg.  Alabi's leg has fully healed, but his conditioning has suffered.

UNC Cleared of Violations

UNC's NCAA compliance committee has cleared the Tar Heels of any violations when some former players contacted prospective basketball athletes.  Over the weekend of Sept 15-16, Sean May and Marvin Williams made contact with some recruits which was initially deemed a possible violation.  The Heels have decided since May and Williams were part-time students, that there was no wrongdoing in their contact.

Virginia Tech's Bell Out 4-8 Weeks

The Hokies and Seth Greenberg received a bit of bad news as forward, Terrell Bell, underwent hernia surgery.  Bell wasn't in contention to get big minutes, but will be out 4-8 weeks to recover.

Morrow Ready for Big Year

Last season, Anthony Morrow dealt with less playing time due to two prized recruits, a stress fracture in his back that kept him from even walking, and a wildly inconsistent junior season.  One thing that his injury helped him realize was the importance of conditioning.  This season, Morrow showed up in the best conditioning of his life, and has Paul Hewitt saying, "He's primed to have a huge year."

ACC Nation

ACC Nation is in full preseason ACC basketball mode, as they have thrown up several team previews, and recently an interview with Dick Vitale.  Of course, the interview could have been generated by the "Random Dick Vitale Quote Machine."  Among previews, they have posted Miami, Virginia Tech, and Florida State.
