'Hoos rule the ACC

Roll over Barry Parkhill, make way for the one and only, Sean Singletary.

What about Jeff Lamp? Wally Walker?

Well, we’ll see...

As a result of tonight’s ACC action, Virginia (20-8, 11-4 in ACC) is now alone in first place in the top-rated conference in Division I basketball. That, with only one game left in regular season play. Singletary (pictured above), the Cavaliers amazing-but-true junior point guard, scored 17 points tonight in leading Virginia to an easy win in Charlottesville over arch rival Va. Tech: Virginia 69, Va. Tech 56.

Later in the evening fading North Carolina (24-6, 10-5 in ACC) lost to surging Georgia Tech (19-10, 7-8 in ACC), dropping the Tar Heels into a three-way tie for second place with Va. Tech (21-9, 10-5 in ACC) and Boston College (19-9, 10-5 in ACC).

Picked to finish in eighth place in the ACC by the preseason pundits, this year’s ‘Hoos are still a work-in-progress. If Virginia can beat Wake Forest (13-15, 4-11 in ACC), there, on Saturday, it will capture the ACC regular season title for the first time since 1995.
