Full-Court Press, May 10: ACC/Big Ten Challenge
According to Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com, several of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge match-ups for next season will be battles between potential top-25 squads.
The official release will come out later this week, but some of the match-ups Goodman reported were: Michigan State at Duke, Purdue at Virginia Tech, Ohio State at Florida State, North Carolina at Illinois and North Carolina State at Wisconsin.
Each of those games has a chance to be a marquee games. Michigan State and Duke could both be top-five teams -- even No. 1 vs. No. 2. Purdue is a top-five team, and Virginia Tech will have Malcolm Delaney back. Ohio State, sans Evan Turner, will be ranked in the top-10, but will have to deal with Florida State and its slew of big men. UNC and Illinois will face off in a rematch of the 2005 national title game -- and both can be top-25 teams. Furthermore, NC State has several highlight-reel players, and it could be quite the contrast to Wisconsin's half-court offense.
