Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball – Power Poll – March 5, 2013

I’m filling for @HokieSmash this week on the ACC power poll. Here’s how I see the ACC power poll going into the last week of the regular season.

Without further ado, here we go:

  1. Miami – I’m not going to penalize the Canes that much, after losing by 3 points on the road at Duke in the face of Ryan Kelly’s best game ever.
  2. Duke – I like what I saw out of Duke with Kelly back, but before I can move them past Miami, I’d like to see a little bit more out of them, like winning at UNC this week.
  3. North Carolina – Eventually UNC’s lack of size will catch up with them, but it might actually be awhile before that happens. The Heels are playing extremely well at the moment.
  4. NC State – You know I think the Wolfpack are finally turning the corner. They are beating the teams they are supposed to beat, and no longer showing that tendency to play down to their competition.
  5. Virginia – I believe UVA should be in the NCAA’s, but losing at Boston College really leaves a bad taste.
  6. Maryland – The Terps are running out of time to make the Big Dance. Maryland’s guard play should be better.
  7. Florida State – The Noles are here kind here of by default. They really are a pretty mediocre team.
  8. Boston College – BC is 2 points from having beat Duke, Miami, Virginia and Maryland at home.
  9. Clemson – Brad Brownell – go recruit.
  10. Georgia Tech – That was a nice win over Maryland, followed by a decent effort losing to NC State. If the Yellow Jackets had a really good PG, this would be a very dangerous team.
  11. Wake Forest – The Deacs on a good day can beat anyone in the conference. The problem is most days are bad for them.
  12. Virginia Tech – The fighting Erick Green’s -> that’s all you need to know.
