ACC/Big Ten Challenge ends in a “tie”

The ACC/Big Ten College Basketball Challenge ended in a draw, 6 wins for the ACC and 6 wins for the Big Ten.  The marque game last night featured 2 Duke vs. 4 Ohio State.  The Dukies did not disappoint their fans at Cameron Indoor Stadium, winning 73 –  68.  In another game, Georgia Tech fell to 22 Illinois, 75 – 62.  The Jackets looked very impressive in this loss, they hardly looked like a team picked to finish 9th in the ACC.  Senior point guard Mfon Udofia suffered an ankle injury and one can only hope it is not as serious as it looked!

In some other sports news: U Conn and Cincinnati may be headed to the ACC as well?

B J Upton is heading from the Yankees to the Atlanta Braves.

Derek Fisher (former Laker) has signed to play with the Dallas Mavericks.

Tonight’s College Football match up will be a Big East battle between Louisville and Rutgers.

Big Thursday Night Football game in the NFL, the Saints visit the Atlanta Falcons.  The Falcons can clinch the NFC south with a win!  GO FALCONS!

Bit of an update:  Marcus Lattimore, injured star RB for South Carolina, is reportedly leaning toward declaring for the NFL draft.  Can’t blame him, two years in a row, serious knee injuries take him out for season.  Hope so much that this young man can come back and get a chance to play at the next level!  (Hope that for him and his family!)
