Vice Principal Brownell is pumped

If it’s Monday. it’s time to give the people what they want, and that includes you Syracuse Orange fans. Let’s get right to this week’s ACC MBB Power Rankings after an ACC/SEC Challenge Week:

Clemson Tigers (7-0, 1-0)

That was a big win on the road against Alabama.....beating Bama was the thing Dabo used to do. Did you think we were going to say something else about the Tigers?

North Carolina Tar Heels (7-1, 1-0)

Dropped 100 on Tennessee which is pretty impressive. Will be interesting to see if UNC can remain consistent through the season. Big OOC opportunity for the Tar Heels when they face UConn in NYC.

Miami Hurricanes (6-1, 1-0)

A forgettable trip to Lexington for the Canes. No one goes into Rupp and wins...well no one other than UNCW anyway.

Virginia Cavaliers (5-1, 0-0)

You might think the most impressive thing they did last week was beat Syracuse, but they also took out the 6-man Texas A&M squad. I mean this isn’t even close to the coaches box.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (4-2, 1-0)

Damon Stoudamire knocks off Duke in his first ACC game. That’s a pretty impressive debut.

Duke Blue Devils (5-3, 0-1)

Jon Scheyer’s probably on the hot seat right?

NC State Wolfpack (5-2, 1-0)

We’re approaching the muddled middle here. It feels like these teams are just going to trade wins and keep themselves all out of the NCAA Tournament in the end.

Pitt Panthers (5-3, 0-1)

Not the best week for Pitt as they dropped two games at home. Those are the ones you look back on in March and say “yeah that would have been nice to have”

Florida State Seminoles (4-3, 0-1)

So much for following up that Colorado win with some momentum.

Virginia Tech Hokies (6-3, 1-0)

We don’t want to say that the Hokies cost the ACC the win in the Challenge, but they did lose the game that let the SEC get the tie.

Syracuse Orange (5-3, 0-1)

Roller coaster week for the Orange who had fans going from Sweet 16 dreams to #FireAutry.

Boston College Eagles (5-3, 0-1)

If the Eagles want to get back into the NCAA Tournament, they need to avoid home losses like the one that they had to NC State over the weekend.

Wake Forest Demon Deacons (4-3, 0-0)

Wake lost to LSU and after watching the Tigers the other night it’s hard to put them much higher this week.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (3-4, 0-1)

Well ND fans at least you aren’t the team behind you.

Louisville Cardinals (4-4, 0-1)

I wonder what Kenny Payne’s buyout is...

Ok, that’s our list. What did we get wrong this week?
