Ladies and Gents, we have our first blowout

Well, all the games can't be gems can they? Even though today was supposed to feature the 8 worst teams in the ACC, we have seen some pretty good basketball. All three of the earlier games were close and came down to the last few minutes. This game is only a good one if you are a Maryland fan. Things are going so poorly for Georgia Tech, even a breakaway dunk by Mario West nearly ended in injury after he came down awkwardly on his left leg. The Yellow Jackets shot just 33% from the field in the first half, and if I had to guess, I would say it has probably gotten even worse thus far in the second half. The Greensboro Coliseum is pretty empty right now outside of the Tech and Maryland sections. I'm beginning to think the upper level seats really aren't that bad. Despite the fact that there are a few thousand seats available in the lower level, quite a few people are still sitting in the top row of the upper deck. Maybe this blowout looks better when you can't quite see it as well... I'm being hard on Georgia Tech, but they are missing layup after layup. Maryland is up by 26 right now at 62-36. Mike Jones has 19 points and Nik Caner-Medley has 13.
