I actually think Wake could be a surprise team next year. Not saying they'll challenge for the ACC or anything but they could be a team to watch down the stretch as a potential spoiler. 

 

Really love the ACC/B10 tournament. They try to match up the teams based on expectations and talent level, so there's no surprise seeing Mich St vs UNC at the top of the list. What's really disappointing is my GF's idiotic MSU alumni friends have moved back to Michigan (thank God) and I won't be able to talk sh1t to them next year. 

 

Mitch McGary might snag 30 rebounds against Duke.

I agree with Wake, I also think BC could be a very nice team and if Wiggins picks FSU they could be an upper echelon team in the Acc. The Acc is going to be strong next year so it should be a lot is fun.

McGary might grab 30 rebounds but I guarantee he will get hammered by the crazies.

MSU perspective on the UNC/Sparty match up.

UNC's schedule is absolutely stacked next season. Duke x2, UK, Notre Dame X2, Louisville, @Syracuse, Pitt, Texas

 

 

From IC:

Looking Ahead to 2013-14: UNC will participate in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament (Nov. 23 vs. Richmond, Nov. 24 vs. Louisville/Fairfield), re-start the series with Kentucky (at home, 12/14), play at Michigan State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge (12/4) and non-conference home game have been scheduled with Holy Cross (11/15), Belmont (11/17), Northern Kentucky (12/27), Texas, UNC-Greensboro and UNC-Wilmington

I hate the B10. Their fans are idiots. It's an over rated conference in every major sport. I have to deal with their fans a lot. Michigan/Michigan State/Ohio State. It never ends. I understand the B10 was incredible last season, but they are not going to have seasons like that on a regular basis. I obviously don't care for Duke but man I'd almost like to see them beat the dogshit out of Michigan (who I think will suffer from a NCAA tourney hangover next year).

Duke has a touch OOC schedule too: Duke vs Kansas in Chicago, Duke vs NIT field at MSG, Duke vs Michigan, and Duke vs UCLA.
