This Week in ACC Basketball: January 29

Jan. 29, 2013

A full 12-game schedule of ACC Basketball features three top 15 teams, due to conference-leader Miami’s rapid ascent in the polls … The Hurricanes moved up 11 spots to No. 14 in this week’s Associated Press poll, their highest ranking since 2002 and the second-highest one-week jump by any team in poll history …  Led by ACC Player of the Week Durand Scott, Miami became just the third team to start 6-0 in league play since the conference expanded prior to the 2004-05 season … Inside play continues to be an ACC strong suit, with both Duke’s Mason Plumlee and NC State’s Richard Howell posting 12 double-doubles so far this season … Howell has grabbed at least 10 rebounds in 12 of his last 14 games … Virginia Tech’s Erick Green continues to lead the nation in scoring and has now scored at least 21 points in 18 of 19 games this season.
