ACCT 2010: Wolfpack wins Game 8!!

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Mar 12, 2010 in Wolfpack Athletics

Alternate title for this entry:  “This is what ACC basketball is all about!”

By 58-52, the N.C. State Wolfpack upends the Florida State Seminoles

Continuing my string of totally non-law-related entries begun yesterday, the #11 seed N.C. State Wolfpack scored an upset victory over #3 seed Florida State by six points tonight, in the quarterfinals of the 2010 ACC tournament. The victory was particularly sweet given the self-righteous arrogance of several FSU folks I crossed paths with at the game :angel:

Not saying every Seminole is a bad Seminole — at least one of my classmates here at NCCU Law is an FSU alum and he’s perfectly chill —  but those folks were a less-than-optimal reflection of the University.

On top of N.C. State’s upset win, 2 of the other 4 games were upsets as well #12 seed Miami taking out #4 seed Virginia Tech and #7 seed Georgia Tech scoring a big win over #2 seed Maryland.  We’ll be facing the Yellow Jackets tomorrow in the semi-finals :D

That means out of the 8 games played so far in the tournament, 6 of them (75%) have been upset victories.

It also means history will be made tomorrow by somebody: only 2 ACC teams in history have made it through 3 straight games to go from the prelims to the finals (NCSU in 1987 and NCSU in 2007), and with both GT and NCSU playing last night whichever team advances will become the 3rd.

That’s all for now, long drive home to Durham then I’m off to bed :)
