Although cheerleading is not recognized as a sport by the NCAA, competition has evolved over the years to require as much practice and dedication as a sanctioned sport. ACC All Access reporter Heather Catlin takes a look at cheerleading in the ACC and the 2007 Maryland Terrapins squad, who took the crown at the National Cheerleaders Association Championships.
Virginia women's basketball guard Monica Wright scored 35 points Monday night in the Cavaliers' upset win over the Tennessee Lady Vols. ACC All Access profiles Wright's success with the Cavaliers and her hopes for the remainder of the season.
And in the ACC All Access Hog Blog, Mike Hogewood spotlights the Clemson University football team, which has endured the resignation of head coach Tommy Bowden, its coach of ten years, and is currently fighting for one more win to become bowl eligible.
The show will air on Thursday at 6 p.m. ET on Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Carolinas and Fox Sports Tennessee. The show can also be seen on Friday at 9 a.m. ET on SportSouth.
