Week two of the college basketball season just finished and holiday tournaments are taking place everywhere. Here is what’s happening in the ACC for this week.

Notre Dame senior forward Bonnie Colson is off to a fast start for the Irish as he has already put together two double-double games. The last one against Mount St Mary, when he went for 27 points and 11 rebounds in an 88-62 win. He now has 25 career double-double games for the Irish.

Also posting a double-double effort vs Mount St Mary was Rex Pflueger who went for 14 and 10. It was his first career double-double. With the win in Notre Dame’s home opener, head coach Mike Brey now has 384 wins. He finds himself just 10 wins away from Digger Phelps’ mark as the all-time wins leader.

The Virginia calling card the past few seasons has been defense. That remains true in the early going of this one. In their opening two games of the year, the Cavaliers have held both of their opponents (UNC Greensboro and Austin Peay), to under 50 points.

In their win over Austin Peay, five Cavaliers players finished in double figures led by Devon Hall who had 18 points. Even more amazing is their record in such games that now stands at 66-2 when their opponent scores fewer than 50 points.

Miami sophomore Bruce Brown Jr. registered the conference’s first triple-double, and the second of his young career with the Hurricanes. It came in their season-opening win vs Gardner-Webb. Brown Jr. went for 10 points, 10 assists, and 11 rebounds.

Against Navy, another Hurricane put together a solid ballgame. Dewan  Huell posted a double-double against the Midshipmen with 14 points and 10 boards. The rebounding total matched a career high, while he fell one point shy of matching his career high in points.
The Virginia Tech Hokies set a record for points in regulation with last Sunday’s thrashing of the Citadel by the score of 132- 93. The school records for points in a game was set back on February 6, 1988, in a double-overtime win over Southern Mississippi by scoring 141. With the win over Citadel, the Hokies set a record for assists in a game with 36.
In Syracuse’s season-opening win against Cornell, an interesting moment took place. Jimmy Boeheim the son of the Orange head man Jim Boeheim, played for the Big Red. The freshman opened the game by knocking down a three-pointer on his way to an 11 point, five rebound performance against his dad’s team.

Trance Mann, a junior guard at Florida State, returns as the leading scorer and rebounder from a season ago. Mann, who has played in 69 straight games for the Seminoles, scored in double figures in eight of Florida State conference games during his sophomore year.
