Day one ACC WBB provides a couple of upsets -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


PITT, WAKE FOREST AND BOSTON COLLEGE SURVIVE DAY ONE

In first round action in Greensboro...one ranking upset with #14 Boston College knocking off Virginia tech 44-32, Wake Forest eliminating Clemson 73-58 and crowd favorite North Carolina falling to Boston College in the opener 82-72 in overtime.

PITT BEATS UNC IN WILD FINISH 

The opener was a back and forth affair early...Pitt leading 19 to 18 after one...until the Panthers went on a 17-2 run over the final 5 minutes of 
the half... taking a 41 to 31 lead after 20 minutes.  

Thank goodness the third quarter mercifully ended. UNC outscored Pitt 14 to 6...to tie it at 47-47. The teams were 6 for 27 in the quarter...Pitt going 1 for 11.

The contest was sent to overtime when Jamie Cherry sank a three with one second left.

North Carolina had nothing left. Pitt went on a 10-2 run to start the extra session and won going away.

WAKE FOREST ROMPS CLEMSON BY 15

The second contest went pretty much as expected...with WFU jumping out
 to a 19-8 first quarter lead and stretching that out to a 40-22
 halftime advantage.

Wake held a 27 to13 rebounding advantage and was shooting 51.5%. 

Clemson was able to get within 14 points a couple of times in the second half...but had no answer for forward Milan Quinn and her 20 points and 15 rebounds. 73-58 and Wake Forest moves on to face Georgia Tech.

BOSTON COLLEGE OUTLASTS VIRGINIA TECH

Hold your hats...B.C took only eight threes in this final game but they were enough in downing #10 seed Virginia Tech 44-32.

Stretches of this battle were a defensive lovers delight. ..especially in the final quarter...where B.C. outscored the Hokies 5-2.

Virginia tech scored 10 points in the final twenty minutes and shot 28.8% for the game. 

More fun Thursday with four games....starting at 11 a.m. with Miami and Pitt.

Softball splits with Lambuth 

Sandy Pearsall's Louisville softball squad went 1-1 on the day against Lambuth...dropping the opener 2 to 1 and winning the final 7 to 1. 

The Cards gathered only four hits in the first game and Lambuth led 2-0 before Brittany Sims doubled in the sixth and scored on Maryssa Becker's sacrifice bunt.

Becker (3-4) took the loss...allowing seven hits and striking out seven.

Louisville was down 1 to 0 before getting home runs in the fourth from Hailey Smith and Megan Hensley to go up 4-1. 
CUofL added two in the sixth on a Lillie Getz triple. The Cards completed the scoring in the seventh with a RBI double from Sims.

  6. Duke survives against Virginia in a close one and Pittsburgh no match for Miami in the first two games today. Rebecca Greenwell didn't play for Blue Devils (back)
    Azura Stevens sure did though

    1. Wake Forest. Tech is the more talented team of the two with Whiteside and Rogers leading the way

  11. Rick Pitino needs to shut up and take the punishment. The more he talks the more he brings in the whole athletic Dept with him

    1. Rick needs to do the right thing and move on. It happened on his watch, he is responsible for his staff. All staff involved need to move on. The university should not have protected him and punished the team. Should have offered him up and not the team.
