ACC: Final-ly!

By - March 09, 2007

We have a final from Tampa: Wake Forest 14, Georgia Tech 12.

The game was like the movie Dreamgirls: overlong and a royal mess but ultimately a satisfying experience. The most bizarre basketball contest I've attended all season featured 74 field goals, 11 double-digit scorers, 48 turnovers and 30 missed free throws.

A quick glance through the tournament record book confirms that tonight's nightcap was the highest-scoring game in event history. More to come from the post-game press conference, where Wake coach Skip Prosser just used the word "Herculean" in an awkwardly funny way before quoting Tom Clancy. (Stay tuned, I promise I'll explain.)

Speaking of history, the four underdogs each won their first-round games Wednesday -- an ACC tournament first.
