Boston College
Olivier Hanlan's 25 points were not enough to help Boston College to a win against Duke this Saturday. The Blue Devils managed an 89-68 victory as the Eagles have been struggling with consistency against Duke and Virginia.

Clemson wasn't able to pull out an upset against Syracuse over the weekend, losing 57-44 to the top-ranked Orange. Clemson wing K.J. McDaniels stays grounded with his family and four-legged friends.

Last year, Duke beat Boston College by just one point, but on Saturday the team used an explosive second half to blow the Eagles out of the water. Jabari Parker took advantage of Boston College's lack of size and had a career night with 29 points and 16 rebounds.

Florida State
After dropping four of its last five games, the Florida State basketball team is in a must-win situation with Miami coming up on the schedule. FSU football coaches talk about the length and athleticism that their 2014 recruiting class gives them.

Georgia Tech
Wesley Simms takes a look at Georgia Tech's top 2014 recruit, Steph Durham. Some numbers suggest that Georgia Tech overachieves with the talent they bring into their football program, while in-state rival Georgia underachieves with lots of talent.

Rebounding is going to be a key for Maryland tonight when the Terps take on Virginia. They haven't rebounded well this year, which is something unusual for Mark Turgeon. Jonas Shaffer breaks down Maryland football commit Damian Prince, an offensive tackle.

The Hurricanes are redshirting sophomore first baseman Christopher Barr, who is trying to overcome shoulder issues. The Miami basketball team is starting to struggle after a strong start to ACC play. 

North Carolina
With a five-game winning streak, it seems like confidence is finally restored in North Carolina. After taking down Notre Dame, the Tar Heels are eyeing Duke--along with everyone else in the country. 

N.C. State
Steve Ruinsky discusses N.C. State and the "Russell Wilson complication." The Wolfpack barely came away with a victory against a struggling Miami team Saturday. 

Notre Dame
After losing at home yet again over the weekend, it's starting to seem like Notre Dame doesn't know anything about a homecourt advantage. Jim Miesle takes a look at the quarterback, wide receiver and tight end positions in the Irish's 2014 recruiting class.

While Pitt is having a successful season so far, there is a growing concern for the weak offense that is showcased more and more of late. The team is going to have to figure something out, because they have a big game coming up with No. 1 Syracuse.

C.J. Fair scored an efficient 19 points in the Orange's win against Clemson. Syracuse football recruit Lamar Dawson's enrollment will probably be delayed as he is fighting a life-threatening blood disease.

The Wahoos are preparing for their final home game against Maryland with "a bull's eye on their backs." The Cavs are coming off of a 64-45 win against Georgia Tech, where they dominated the second half.

Virginia Tech
GobblerCountry.com takes a look at Virginia Tech's pitchers in their 2014 baseball preview. The same site also examines Virginia Tech's struggles recruiting the 757 area code--a talent-rich area in Virginia.

Wake Forest
The Wake Forest football program received a $2 million dollar gift from Alan Fox, a Deacon alumnus. The money will go to a new sports-performance center and enhance the nutrition program for all Wake Forest student-athletes, including Dave Clawson's 26 new football players.
