Let’s get right to it; here’s what you need to know: ACC football schedule release, Virginia basketball continues to dominate, Miami adds QB Tate Martell and Boston College gets a new offensive coordinator.
Tuesday night: UVA wins big, UNC hangs on at home, NC State falls at Wake
This one got out of hand quickly: In Charlottesville, Virginia demolishes Virginia Tech, 81-59. The Cavaliers score 1.45 points per possession, which is sizzling, and connect on 13-of-24 3-point attempts (54.2 3P%). Virginia’s Big 3 was magnificent, too: Ty Jerome (14 points, 12 assists, 2 steals), Kyle Guy (15 points, 3 3-pointers) and De’Andre Hunter (21 points on 12 FGA).
UVA now ranks No. 1 overall in KenPom’s efficiency ratings.
Without lead guard Markell Johnson, NC State fell in a road upset to Wake Forest, which improves to 8-8 on the season with its first ACC win. Wake Forest built up a big 42-27 halftime lead, but saw that evaporate; however, the Deacons held off a second-half comeback from the Pack.

In the nightcap from Chapel Hill: North Carolina hung on to defeat Mike Brey and Notre Dame, 75-69. John Mooney was great for the Irish — 16 points, 19 rebounds — but it wasn’t enough. Oh, and UNC got a big game from Nassir Little, who looked bouncy.
Here we go: Mismatch with the 6-11 Durham on Nassir Little, but this is quick. Blow by and a slam in a blink. pic.twitter.com/uOZZ4tsB7k
