ACC games mean ACC GameThreads. Everyone's a winner.
This is it. The season. The real season. No more cupcakes. No more directional schools from Indiana. This is the first real game in over a month, only the second or third real test for this team. (Depending, at least, on your view of Stony Brook.) Let's find out what they're about.
Random, Baseless Prediction: Today's leading scorer for Maryland? Seth Allen, with 14. A quiet 14, but 14 nonetheless.
Prediction: Erick Green drops 24 and Virginia Tech leads in the second half, but Maryland takes advantage of a Tech cold spell and runs off a quick 10-0 run midway through the second. They never look back and win by a comfortable margin.
Guessing Game: Who scores the first Maryland points of ACC play, and when and what is it? I say Dez Wells with a layup at 19:44.
