Many years back over a conversation about women’s basketball, a man, who I don’t know to credit, told me “If you know the game, hoops is hoops!” While concerns about post-season tournament berths worry many that follow ACC Men’s Basketball, the women’s teams are competitive within the conference and nationally with five teams ranked in the Women’s Top 25 polls. Only one team is ranked on the men’s side. The ACC Network and partner RSN gave fans another full night of exciting games featuring nationally ranked teams as #24 UNC defeated #3 Louisville 66-65 while #19 Notre Dame traveled to #16 Georgia Tech for a 72-66 overtime win, and #4 NC State maintained first place among the women’s teams with a 92-61 win over Wake Forest. With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, all 15 teams could see their league standing change with each game. Key games to closes the season on February 27th, that may decide final seedings for the ACC Tournament include NC State at Virginia Tech, Louisville at Notre Dame, Georgia Tech at Wake Forest, and Duke at North Carolina. Enjoy the hoops!
