Duke dismissed fears of a defensive letdown last night against Virginia Tech with a "step on their throats" mentality. Coach K said that Marshall Plumlee will have a more and more prominent role.

Florida State

North Carolina
The Tar Heels moved back into the Top 25 after beating No. 5 Duke. They are ranked No. 19. As North Carolina prepares to take on the Wolfpack, Leslie McDonald and Kennedy Meeks are both hobbling around.

N.C. State
After biding his time for a few years, Tyler Lewis is now making the most out of his starting role with the Wolfpack. Luke DeCock wonders if State has improved enough to where a zone defense from UNC won't prove impossible to overcome.

Notre Dame
Andrew Hall breaks down Notre Dame's spring football practice schedule. Eric Murtaugh takes a look at how former Notre Dame players did in the NFL combine.

After looking at some numbers, it seems like Pitt's home field advantage at Heinz Field doesn't help them out as much as you'd think. Scouts are raving about Aaron Donald after he ran a 4.68 40-yard dash and did 35 reps in the 225-pound bench press.

Virginia could win the ACC title this week, but before the Hoos get ready to take on No. 4 Syracuse, they have to beat Miami at home. One of the players that Virginia is looking for to have some big performances is Justin Anderson, who's given the Cavs a spark on many occasions.

Virginia Tech
The Hokies put up an encouraging effort, but they were no match for an impressive defensive game from Duke. The GobblerCountry.com staff wonders if the Virginia Tech football team will fall victim to the trend of fans staying home now that their sellout streak is over.

Wake Forest
The Demon Deacons finally found a spark against Clemson and beat the Tigers 62-57. In BloggerSoDear.com's latest podcast, they discuss whether or not the players have quit on Jeff Bzdelik and wonder when the head coach will be fired.
