The weekly in-depth look at the best (worst?) moments in ACC schadenfreude.

MAN YOU COULD'VE AT LEAST SHARED THAT FREE PIZZA I BROUGHT
MAN YOU COULD'VE AT LEAST SHARED THAT FREE PIZZA I BROUGHT

Well folks, we've reached the final week of the #goacc regular season. Starting next week, the Second Annual #goacc Tournament of Champions will begin! This is the last chance for entries to qualify for that tournament, so make sure to get the votes in early! This week's slate features a few that I think will sneak in to the field of 64, and of course, we'll close with our favorite wrasslin' commentator. Time to get down to business - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Duke players shield Duke player with towels while he's laying on the court (h/t @LeePaceTweet).

This is super odd - I've never seen this happen before during a game. Totally get the privacy issues, but when you have thousands upon thousands of people at the arena that can see around the towels, plus countless people watching at home...this all seems rather pointless.

2. Former Duke player Dahntay Jones "inadvertently" bumps Draymond Green during his postgame interview, Green absolutely ethers him for it (h/t @TheButlerDid_It and @Diamond83).

First, check out this bump during Green's postgame interview:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Dahntay Jones was this close to receiving the fade of his life <a href="https://t.co/BVMSSVxWOO">https://t.co/BVMSSVxWOO</a></p>&mdash; Sidney Deane (@TheButlerDid_It) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheButlerDid_It/status/574702433835872256">March 8, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Just look at that reaction from Green. My goodness, he's furious. Later on, in the locker room, Green had this to say:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Draymond Green rips Dahntay Jones <a href="http://t.co/nDyUx6rTkv">http://t.co/nDyUx6rTkv</a></p>&mdash; Diamond Leung (@diamond83) <a href="https://twitter.com/diamond83/status/574700144949653505">March 8, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

"I think he wanted a reaction from me...but he don't play....soooo....."

BURRRRRNNNNNNEEEEDDDD!!!

3. This free pizza ad from Papa John's is guaranteed to haunt your dreams (h/t @JerryRatcliffe).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>First thing I saw this morning. <a href="http://t.co/of9CXKU0xM">pic.twitter.com/of9CXKU0xM</a></p>&mdash; Jerry Ratcliffe (@JerryRatcliffe) <a href="https://twitter.com/JerryRatcliffe/status/572753993123799040">March 3, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

NOPE. NOPE. NOPE.

Speaking of terrible advertisements...

4. UNC had some odd restrictions listed in their ad for College Gameday.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>No Brand References?

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

How do hashtags get lumped in with profanity and vulgarity?

5. Oh...oh no, Mike Dunleavy Jr (h/t @gifdsports).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Mike Dunleavy Jr dunk fail <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/whitemencantjump?src=hash">#whitemencantjump</a> <a href="https://t.co/BtSviVUez3">https://t.co/BtSviVUez3</a></p>&mdash; gifdsports (@gifdsports) <a href="https://twitter.com/gifdsports/status/573667672946176002">March 6, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

When you're that tall, that's unbelievably embarrassing to get stuffed by the rim. Good heavens.

6. What on earth is happening here with Seth Greenberg?

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/SethOnHoops">@SethOnHoops</a>: Lowest point in my career. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/DUKEvsUNC?src=hash">#DUKEvsUNC</a> <a href="http://t.co/UdplPdrwvl">pic.twitter.com/UdplPdrwvl</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/574219791063453696">March 7, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Is he getting a tattoo? Is that his own face going on his leg? I'm so confused.

7. NC State fan gets juuuuust a bit NSFW when caught on camera (h/t @JamesCurle and @the_Jameson).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/JamesCurle">@JamesCurle</a>: So this guy happened: <a href="https://t.co/wKtzotv1H8">https://t.co/wKtzotv1H8</a></p>&mdash; Jameson (@the_Jameson) <a href="https://twitter.com/the_Jameson/status/574277725889904641">March 7, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

........Welp. Don't think anymore needs to be said here.

8. Greensboro is ready for the media to arrive for the ACC Tournament (h/t @marilyn_payne and @RTD_MikeBarber).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT “<a href="https://twitter.com/RTD_MikeBarber">@RTD_MikeBarber</a>: Greensboro welcomes the media ...

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

That might be the only place in America that still sells typewriters.

9. Tony Bennett's reaction at the end of the loss to Louisville is amazing (h/t @TheCauldron).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>GIF: Tony Bennett&#39;s reaction to Virginia&#39;s in-bounds tells you all you need to know <a href="http://t.co/EKZivsDHJr">pic.twitter.com/EKZivsDHJr</a></p>&mdash; The Cauldron (@TheCauldron) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheCauldron/status/574381410623979520">March 8, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

I mentioned this on Twitter, but this is the look you give when you're out at the bar, and your ex rolls in. Exact same look.

10. Duke players warm up with some synchronized squatting (h/t @bretstrelow).

Everything about this is awkward as hell haha.

And now, for your moment of zen,

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENTs OF THE WEEK!

We've got a pair of hilarious re-dubs of vines featuring the legendary voice of Jim Ross, with the first happening in the B1G with this hellacious dunk from Indiana:

Dear lord. But, not to be out done, a frequent guest in this spot returned yet again. Let's see what Jim Ross had to say about yet another destructive block from BeeJay Anya:
