There are no more ACC teams left as Duke and Florida St. fell in the Elite Eight. If someone would have told me that FSU and Clemson would have been two of the last three ACC teams left in the tourney, I would have lost some money betting. Clemson did a great job of overcoming adversity this season and showed well to win two games in the tourney. FSU just came out of nowhere and played like they belonged, but I knew they weren't the best team in this tourney. Duke was a Grayson Allen bucket away from going back to the Final Four, but it rimmed out in regulation, before losing in overtime. In my initial bracket, I had Villanova and Michigan in the Championship game. It's still possible, but Kansas and underdog Loyola-Chicago are playing as well as anybody right now.
Unfortunately, it's tough to talk about Martinsville when a snow storm decides to invade the place. Since the Storm of 1993, there has never been a Cup race postponed due to snow. Since deadline came before the race ended, there isn't much to talk about until next week NASCAR wise.
