-- It's a cluster-$#@%. Close games galore. Who will reach the NCAAs? Will any ACC fans survive the season?

-- From Ken Tysiac:

The chorus going up from press row lately is that flopping is becoming unbearable in the ACC, especially from players trying to draw charges on drives into the lane. It might be time for college basketball to consider a foul for flopping similar to the NHL's diving rule. Problem is, such a rule requires referees to discern intent, and that's not easy to do.

Wouldn't it be enough to just call a blocking foul on the flopper? More no-calls would be fine with me as well.

-- Quentin Thomas, free at last? Over the course of his career, this is how Thomas's Asts/40min numbers have compared to the starting point guard:
 2005 2006 2007 2008
Felton 8.7 Frasor 6.4 Lawson 8.7 Lawson 8.8
Thomas 8.0 Thomas 9.3 Thomas 11.5 Thomas 7.8
Yeah, I know almost all of his time has come in garbage time. I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.
