The Celtics need shooting, and Jared Dudley, the 2007 first round pick out of Boston College who's going to be an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, could provide that as a stretch-four off the bench.
Thanks to its Big Three, Boston College will live another day. Tyrese Rice (26 points), Sean Marshall (21), and Jared Dudley (19) lived up to their billing Thursday afternoon, pacing the 7th-seeded Eagles to an 84-75 win over Texas Tech in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
At 12:25 on Thursday it will be time for everyone to put their "game faces" on. If you have any questions about what a game face just ask Bobby Knight!
It's full-tilt March Madness, beginning Thursday. We'll take a peek at the 16 first-round games played Thursday, as well as let you know who we think will get to Atlanta. And we'll also tell you who we think will be cutting twine in the Georgia Dome on April 2. The team's identity shouldn't surprise you.
The Eagles may be sitting on 10 conference wins and a bye going into the ACC tournament, like they were at this time last year, but man does it seem different this time around.
Can you believe that the regular season is over? I for one can't believe that I'm writing my final "This Week in the ACC" of the season. I have had a great time covering the conference and can't wait for this weekend's ACC Tournament.
Leave it to the seniors. For Jared Dudley and Sean Marshall, their last hurrah at Conte Forum was a special one.

"You have to feel bad for Jared Dudley. Besides his three crucial free throws, the guy played a tremendous game. Unfortunately, the likes of SportsCenter would have you believe he was the biggest goat in the country on Saturday."
