Around the ACC: April 11, 2014
Basketball is over. Football is long over. In fact, we are closer to the next football season than the last one. So… what else is going on to keep us interested?
Well, there is always lacrosse. The ACC is stacked in lacrosse right now. All six of the ACC programs are in the top 10, with Duke leading the way at #2. The women are nearly as dominant, with the same six programs in the top 18. On the womens’ side, however, the ACC has the top three spots: UNC, Maryland, and Syracuse. Also, Louisville is #19.
And the ACC is doing typically well in baseball too. Florida State is #1, while Virginia is #2. Clemson and Miami area also ranked, while soon-to-be ACC member, Louisville, is #11 overall.
But if you cannot get away from the revenue sports, there is always something going on somewhere involving an ACC team. Consider the following articles on the Internet today:
