Four Corners: NC State Curse on Maryland

We are back and bringing the home stretch of the ACC basketball season to a close there are several scenarios that could happen which is muddying the water for what will take place in the ACC tournament.

One: NC State fans will be doing the unthinkable Wednesday night.  They will openly be pulling for the Terrapins. Now you may be saying NC State fans are always against UNC and you could be right, but there is a difference between wanting the Tar Heels to lose and needing a team to beat North Carolina to help out the Pack.  NC State needs to win out and have UNC lose to better their position in the ACC tournament.

Two: Duke is playing Virginia tech tonight or should I say they played Erik Green. Erik Green is one of the best players America will not be able to watch during the NCAA tournament.  It is a shame  because Green is one of the guys worth the price of admission to see.

Three: Ryan Kelly is back for Duke and regardless of how you feel about Coach K and the Blue Devils his return will solidify the Devils as a team that can win the National Championship. How UNC does versus Duke at home will be a strong indicator of how far the Tar Heels can advance in March.

Four: James Michael McAdoo has had some stellar games versus the weaker teams in the ACC.  North Carolina goes on the road versus Maryland and finishes with Duke. The Tar Heels will need a big time performance from McAdoo in order to win either of these games.
