ACC Basketball Tweetable 2012-13 Previews

0 of 12

    In a world filled with texts and tweets, saying something significant in a few words is the standard. college basketball blogger Jeff Borzello posted a Big 12 Conference Catchup that included a "team commentary in 140 characters or less."

    Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I tip my hat to Jeff and offer 2012-13 ACC team-by-team previews that are 140 characters or less.

Boston College Eagles

1 of 12

    BC (9-22, 4-12 ACC). Nowhere to go but up. All-ACC frosh Ryan Anderson returns to help the Eaglets learn to fly. Head Coach Steve Donahue needs to give Tom Crean a call.

Clemson Tigers

2 of 12

    Brad Brownell will have the Tigers (16-15, 8-8 in ACC) ready to pounce, but from where will the points come? Devin Booker and Milton Jennings could be nasty down low.

Duke Blue Devils

3 of 12

    Blue Devils (27-7, 13-3 ACC) have more senior experience than just about anyone in the country. Mason Plumlee's return makes a deep run in March Madness possible.

Florida State Seminoles

4 of 12

    FSU (25-10, 12-4 ACC) will challenge for the league title. Could senior guard Michael Snaer be the first 'Nole to win the ACC POY award in school history? Possibly.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

5 of 12

    Tech (11-20, 4-12 ACC) may be better off without Glen Rice, Jr. Sad. Mfon Udofia is ready for a breakout senior season. Incoming PF Robert Carter will be special.

Maryland Terrapins

6 of 12

    Maryland (17-15, 6-10 ACC) is regrouping. Terrell Stoglin’s exit changes dynamic of the team. If incoming frosh Shaquille Cleare is ready, watch for Terps to jump.

Miami Hurricanes

7 of 12

    Miami (20-13, 9-7 ACC) has two of the best bigs in the league. 6-11 Kenny Kadji can do damage from the perimeter. 6-10 Reggie Johnson is a handful in the lane.

North Carolina Tar Heels

8 of 12

    UNC (32-6, 14-2 ACC) loses four draft picks but will challenge for the league title. James Michael McAdoo will be a star. Frosh PG Marcus Paige can score in bunches.

North Carolina State Wolfpack

9 of 12

    NC State (24-13, 9-7 ACC) has its best squad since the Jimmy V era. C.J. Leslie is ready for a monster season. Will be tough to keep the three freshmen off the court.

Virginia Cavaliers

10 of 12

    Virginia (22-10, 9-7 ACC) will miss Mike Scott. The rest of the Cavaliers return to build off '11-12 success. Tony Bennett signed a fantastic 2012 recruiting class.

Virginia Tech Hokies

11 of 12

    Virginia Tech (16-17, 4-12 ACC) lost big talent after Seth Greenberg's firing. Senior guard Erick Green (15.6 PPG) is ready to blow up. Hokies will struggle again.

Wake Forest Demon Deacons

12 of 12

    Head coach Jeff Bzdelik will eventually be through cleaning house at Wake Forest (13-18, 4-12 ACC). C.J Harris and Travis McKie are back to lead the way.
