    Players to Watch
    NC State
    Andrew Brackman --
    Brackman tallied 14 points in 19 minutes against the Tar Heels, as he was NC State's most efficient player. If Ilian Evtimov can't go, NC State will need another big game from Brackman.

    Boston College
    Craig Smith --
    A potential All-ACC pick, Smith is having a terrific season. The burly forward leads BC in scoring and rebounding, and is a matchup nightmare for opposing power forwards.
