Happy Saturday. Here's some reading, if you please.
Everyone in Blacksburg will probably have to wait until Sunday before knowing the status of Hokies guard Malcolm Delaney, who sprained his left ankle in a win over Longwood on Dec. 30. But North Carolina announced that fifth-year senior Marcus Ginyard will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained right ankle. Will Graves and Leslie McDonald are questionable with right ankle sprains.
Meanwhile, Norm Wood of the Newport News Daily Press takes a look at the Atlantic Coast Conference up until this point in the year. He writes that the conference "may be rivaled this season (again) only by the Big East, but the ACC was proven to be anything but infallible against elite competition in non-conference play."
One of the teams that Wood notes in the above piece is Miami. The Hurricanes, who are 14-1 and play at Virginia Tech on Wednesday, have shrugged off questions about their legitimacy. They will have a chance to prove their value on Saturday, when they play Wake Forest. If you're free to watch the Miami-Wake Forest game, I'd suggest you tune in to check out the Hurricanes, whose meeting with the Hokies is an intriguing match up of ACC teams off to a hot start against relatively soft competition.
