Take The Win

Projected Picks

As long as the final score is to your advantage, you take the win. That doesn’t mean you have to be happy with the outcome. Players and coaches should never be satisfied with yesterday’s performance. In some cases this past week, specifically in ACC basketball there is plenty of room to be happy, for others, not so much. There will likely be a few restless nights this week as not only players and coaches but fans replay some haunting moments from this week’s games.

On this week’s episode of ACC Nation Podcast (Episode #151), Xayveon and Jim will slather some of that basketball ugly in between two slices of whole wheat bread. They’ll toss in a slice of tomato to keep it interesting and then invite you to take a big bite along with them. In some cases, it’s not so tasty.

First things first though as we check out sports from across ACC Nation. Find out who’s on top of the conference in wrestling and indoor track and field this week in the rundown.

There’s a battle going on in gymnastics and it involves three schools from the ACC. Find out what teams from the conference are ranked in collegiate ice hockey.

New preseason polls are coming out soon for beach volleyball, rowing and golf. We’ll have all three and hopefully, we’ll drop fewer puns.
