Weekly Superlatives

Player of the Week - Armando Bacot, North Carolina

Armando Bacot followed up his monster 29-point, 21-rebound performance in UNC's win over Virginia last Saturday with another huge game, dropping 29 points and 12 rebounds in North Carolina's 88-65 victory over Georgia Tech. 

Team of the Week - Florida State

On Tuesday night, RayQuan Evans made a pair of free throws with 0.8 seconds remaining and Florida State handed Miami its first ACC loss of the season with a tight 65-64 victory in Tallahassee. The Seminoles then picked up a hard-fought 76-71 win over Syracuse in the Carrier Dome on Saturday. Don't look now, but Leonard Hamilton has the Seminoles, who lost three non-conference games early in the season and lost two out of their first three ACC contests, tied for fourth in the ACC standings with a 4-2 conference record having won each of their last three games.
