Virginia Tech, Miami tip off in ACC quarterfinals
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Happy Thursday. We're gearing up for Day 2 at Greensboro Coliseum, and this time Virginia Tech will actually take the court. Here's some reading to fill you in on the basics.
The fourth-seeded Hokies will face 12th-seeded Miami in a match up more favorable than if they had to play fifth-seeded Wake Forest, which is tough to defend in transition and can be nearly impossible to stop in the paint with Al-Farouq Aminu.
The Hurricanes knocked off the Demon Deacons thanks in part to the play of replacement forward Reggie Johnson, who was filling in for injured starter Dwayne Collins, who has a leg injury. He scored a career-high 22 points and put on a perfect shooting effort.
And finally here's a piece on Malcolm Delaney, who plays with an against-the-world mentality that has driven him to be successful. He is an underdog guard playing for an underdog program, and he wouldn't have it any other way.
