Led by sophomore wing MJ Walker — 22 points, six 3-pointers, five assists — Florida State picked up a key ACC road win on Sunday, defeating Miami 78-66.

FSU is off until Saturday, when it hosts Georgia Tech; Miami, now a game under .500, must face Virginia Tech on Wednesday.


BIG Monday Hoops: Duke at Notre Dame

There’s only one game in the ACC tonight, but it’s a fun one: Duke at Notre Dame. The Irish and Blue Devils will tip at 7 p.m. In upset fashion, can Notre Dame hit the brakes on a four-game losing slide against Duke?


North Carolina women’s basketball knocks off No. 1 Notre Dame

On Sunday in Chapel Hill, North Carolina pulled off a stunning upset — knocking off No. 1 Notre Dame, 78-73. Paris Kea led the way with one heck of a performance, too: 30 points and 10 rebounds. For UNC, the win was the program’s first against a No. 1 team in nearly 13 years.


Welcome back to the ACC: NC State lands grad transfer WR Tabari Hines

On Sunday, former Wake Forest and Oregon wide receiver Tabari Hines committed to NC State. Hines played three seasons of ball (2015-17) at Wake Forest: 123 receptions for 1,496 yards and 13 touchdowns. His one season at Oregon was cut short due to an injury, but Hines played in four games and caught three passes, including one for a touchdown.

With Jakobi Meyers departing for the NFL, the 5-foot-9 Hines adds a veteran to the mix at slot for NC State in 2019.


Pitt football adds grad transfer OT

Pittsburgh’s offensive line for the 2019 season grew by one on Sunday. Former Michigan lineman Nolan Ulizo will transfer to the program. Ulizo spent the last few seasons at Michigan; he played in five games during the 2018 season, and was a starter for portions of 2017, too.

Pitt ranked third in the ACC in raw rushing yards per game during the 2018 season.
