FSN South's ACC ALL ACCESS spotlights the Atlantic Coast Conference, with behind-the-scenes, real-life experiences of ACC student-athletes and coaches in a live, weekly, half-hour show.
ACC ALL ACCESS examines one of the biggest women's basketball matchups of the year as North Carolina and Duke square off on Sunday (1/29). The second-ranked Blue Devils are fresh from a decisive victory over previously unbeaten and top-ranked Tennessee, and Duke looks to make a statement by knocking off two, top five teams in a week. However, the third-ranked Tar Heels have other plans when they visit Cameron Indoor Stadium. This rival battle's winner is likely to be the number one team in the land.
ALL ACCESS spotlights Duke women's basketball as guard Abby Warner is adding a new weapon to an already potent Blue Devil offense. The sharp-shooting freshman boasts 47 percent from the field and has hit 32 three-pointers on the season.
Reporter Jenn Hildreth profiles NC State guard/forward Gavin Grant (6-7, 212), who is showing style on and off the court. This sophomore standout often draws comparisons to high school teammate and former Wolfpacker and ACC Player of the Year Julius Hodge, but Grant is making a name for himself by bringing his individuality to the hardwood and the campus. Grant, who hails from The Bronx (N.Y.), has definitely brought some hometown flavor with him to Raleigh.
Tuesday's ALL ACCESS takes a look at the conference's surprise men's team of the year- the Virginia Cavaliers. UVA, the preseason pick to finish last in the ACC standings, is sporting a 4-2 conference record and turning heads. First-year coach Dave Leitao has brought a new style of play to Charlottesville, and his players are buying into the system.
Also, this week's show features women's basketball as Beth Mowins and Debbie Antonelli run down the leaderboard and spotlight the week's biggest matchups.
