posted on November 9, 2016
The depth of the ACC was nearly on full display in 2016-17. The league produced seven NCAA Tournament teams, six of which ended up in the Sweet 16 and two in the Final Four.   The final AP poll, before the start of the NCAA Tournament, featured five teams in the top 20 — No. 3 North Carolina, No. 4 Virginia, No. 10 Miami, No. 16 Louisville and No. 19 Duke.   So why was this a year of near-greatness?

posted on November 9, 2016
For the second straight season, Notre Dame has lost two vital pieces of an Elite Eight team. But the Fighting Irish — as they have done so often in the Mike Brey era — will identify new leading men.   “Outside, the expectations will rotate back to what they were going into (Jerian) Grant and (Pat) Connaughton’s last year,” says Brey, in his 17th season with the Irish. “People on the outside will be thinking, ‘They’re rebuilding. Maybe they’re...
