Today’s matchup between Louisville and North Carolina could end up being pretty different than the other two when it comes to who is on the court. It’s only two guys, but two very important guys that played in the other two games that will not play today. For Louisville, it’s Chris Jones. For North Carolina, they could be without sophomore big man Kennedy Meeks due to flu-like symptoms.

The last double-bye in the ACC Tournament will not be determined until the final day of regular season games, which is Saturday.

Terry Rozier Previews North Carolina 1/30/15

Rick Pitino and Terry Rozier met with the media on Friday afternoon to preview the UNC game. This is Rozier’s portion of the press conference. He talks about the NBA draft, Yum Center rims, Chris Jones, and much more.

On the NBA draft: We haven’t talked about that. Like I’ve been saying the whole year, or since I’ve been on this little verge of people saying if I’m going to leave or not, it’s something that we’ve talked about. But we’ve said I’m going to focus on being the best college basketball player I can be. It would be selfish to think about the pros right now. I mean, I’m not going to lie and say I don’t think about it. It’s something in my mind. But for me to be thinking about the draft and me leaving without taking care of business here first is selfish of me. That’s all I’m focused on right now — helping my team go and win the national championship.

Rick Pitino and Terry Rozier met with the media on Friday afternoon to preview the North Carolina game. Here is Pitino’s portion of the press conference, transcribed by Jeff Greer of the Courier Journal.

Pitino talks about the Tar Heels, the recent intrasquad scrimmage, Terry Rozier’s NBA draft stock, and much more.

Opening statement: I guess, when I got on the plane or the bus ride back from Boston, checked out the ACC scores, I was quite surprised. And that’s the nature of any great conference — it’s full of surprises because the bottom is very close to the top. Boston College played Virginia to the mat; they pulled away at the end. We pulled away at the end. Any great league has to have the bottom close to the top, and the teams in our league at the bottom. Georgia Tech, I believe, was winless and just blitzed Miami at Miami. So that’s the sign of any really good league. If you’re not on top of your game, you’re going to come away with an L. Carolina’s playing much better than the first time we played them. They’re on a winning streak, they’re playing with more scoring, more confidence and they’re better than the last time we faced them, so we have to be better.

Opening statement: When you get into league play, every game takes on a different style and certainly this will be a totally different style from the Clemson game. There’ll be a lot more paying attention to transition baskets, rebounding, controling your turnovers. This should be a very exciting game for both teams.

ACC Football Schedule and Standings: Week 8

acc

The Cards are off this Saturday because of their game next Thursday against Florida State. There are still some other good games this weekend to pay attention to in the ACC division races. The Coastal is obviously all jumbled up as 1 game separates all 7 teams. Boston College needs to get back to their winning ways, so hosting Wake Forest should help that. Can Virginia get back on track against UNC and show that the first half of the season wasn’t a fluke?

And it will be good to see if Clemson can go on the road and play in a loud environment…

Other than that, there are still some good games that should put some separation between teams in the conference. Here is the schedule, followed by the standings.

Thursday

Pittsburgh (4-3, 2-1) def Virginia Tech (4-3, 1-2) 21-16.
