ACC. . . . 9-4. 12. 447. 1-1. .

It was an ugly start to the post-holiday break for the Hokies. They were blown out at Wake Forest, 86-63 and it was never really that close. They get a full week off and it's going to be a long week for Mike Young and his team. They can't afford many more losses like that this season.

Last week: No. 8

Games this week: Jan. 6 at Florida State

9-4. 11. . ACC. . . . 444. . 0-2

The Panthers' trip to Western New York ended with an 81-73 loss to the Orange. Pittsburgh led 38-30 at halftime but gave up 51 second-half points to remain winless in conference play.

Last week: No. 7

Games this week: Jan. 2 vs. North Carolina, Jan 6 at Louisville

10. . 431. . . . 0-1. . 9-3. ACC

It was a week off for the Eagles who will return to action this week at home against a Wake Forest team that was clicking on all cylinders against Virginia Tech Saturday. BC is still one of the ACC's unknown teams this season.

Last week: No. 11

Games this week: Jan. 2 vs. Wake Forest, Jan. 6 at Georgia Tech
