With the ACC, Big 12 and SEC Championship games this weekend, plenty of you are probably thinking more about the pigskin (and the #@!# BCS) than hoops. But there's still a few games worth tuning into. Here's a look:
Saturday, Dec. 6
12:00 p.m. (FSN South, NESN) NC State vs. #24 Davidson
The Story: Jack McClinton was ejected in Tuesday night's game for slapping Ohio State guard Anthony Crater in the face. McClinton was reacting to Crater's swiping at him and Crater immediately covered his face after contact from McClinton, but remained in the game. Coach Frank Haith was angered Wednesday morning after reviewing the tape. "After watching the tape I was disappointed and I felt that Jack reacted to being hit in the face,'' Haith said.

Four games are on the schedule before Saturday, with the big one being an ACC Coastal showdown between #23 Miami (7-3, 4-2) and Georgia Tech (7-3, 4-3). The Hurricanes, currently in the driver's seat in the division, need a win to keep that status since North Carolina lurks just one game behind in the standings. And with the Heels due to take on NC State and Duke to end the season, a loss here could essentially hand the division to a Carolina team that has already defeated Miami and Georgia Tech.

A rivalry that in recent years switched from the Big East to the ACC takes center stage on Thursday night, as Virginia Tech (6-3, 3-2 ACC Coastal) visits Miami (6-3, 3-2) at 7:30 PM on ESPN. The winner gets a leg up in the unpredictable Coastal Division race, while the loser would be in serious trouble. Although Miami has a 16-9 advantage in the series, the Hokies have the upper hand of late winning nine of the last thirteen meetings. A star was born last Thursday night for Virginia Tech, with redshirt freshman Darren Lewis rushing for 253 yards in their win over Maryland.
