We know Virginia had a marvelous Feast Week.

The Cavaliers collected 2 elite wins at the Continental Tire Main Event in Las Vegas, demonstrating that last season’s NIT trip likely was just a blip on the radar, not a sign that Tony Bennett’s program was fading from its hard-earned national powerhouse status.

As for the rest of the ACC? It was a mixed bag, in truth. Duke showed some good — and some bad — in its runner-up finish at a stacked PK 85 Phil Knight legacy event. NC State showed it can play with anyone at the ESPN Events Invitational down at Walt Disney World. Louisville got a tan in Maui, but Kenny Payne’s first Cardinals team left with little else to show for their trip to Hawaii. And UNC … well, we’ll get to what happened to the Tar Heels in Portland, Ore.

With Feast Week in the rearview mirror and the ACC-Big Ten challenge on deck this week, starting with 2 games Monday night, here is a fresh set of Saturday Road ACC Power Rankings. Last week’s list is here.

15. Louisville (0-6)

Last Week (LW): 15

The Cardinals went 0 for the Maui Invitational, losing every game by at least 19 points. Ouch. It doesn’t get any easier for Louisville this week, with Maryland on deck in the ACC-Big Ten challenge and an ACC opener with Miami coming next weekend. An 0-8 start to the Payne era is … painful (sorry). Better days are ahead for the Cardinals, but it won’t be this season.

14. Florida State (1-7)

LW: 14

The Seminoles went 0 for their Feast Week, too, losing 3 games on a “semi-home” floor at the ESPN Events Invitational at Disney World in greater Orlando, Fla. Leonard Hamilton’s team got healthier, too, which makes the losses all the more concerning. Right now, FSU can’t stop anyone from scoring, ranking 180th in KenPom Adjusted Defensive Efficiency , a number that is astronomical for a program accustomed to being among the premier defensive teams in America. It’s too early to say Hamilton, 74, has lost a step, but a 2nd straight losing season in Tallahassee after the best decade in program history will raise eyebrows and questions.

13. Syracuse (3-3)

LW: 11

A win against a solid Richmond team had us thinking that maybe the Orange was turning a corner. It isn’t.

Syracuse lost to Bryant at the buzzer Saturday, and the team engaged in an on-court melee to put an exclamation point on the embarrassing evening.

Jim Boeheim’s team also dropped the championship game of the Empire Classic to in-state rival St. John’s in overtime earlier in the week, leaving the Orange little to feel good about as the team turns its attention to a brutal ACC-Big Ten Challenge game against Illinois.

12. Georgia Tech (4-2)

LW: 7

The Yellow Jackets impressed us during the opening weeks of the season but laid an egg in Fort Myers, Fla., during Feast Week, losing a tight game to Utah in their opener and then getting blown out by Marquette in the 3rd-place game. Josh Pastner’s team can’t score, which you’ll recall was the problem last season, too. Tech ranks 189th in KenPom offensive efficiency, and the Yellow Jackets are shooting just 29.7% as a team from deep, despite high volume.

11. Pittsburgh (4-3)

LW: 13

The Panthers bounced back from their last-place finish at the Legends Classic to win 3 consecutive games comfortably. Healthy versions of John Hugley IV, who missed the Brooklyn, N.Y., Feast Week event, and Blake Hinson, playing his 1st healthy campaign since his freshman season at Ole Miss, have given this team a nice 1-2 frontcourt punch. But until they beat a quality opponent, it’s hard to take Jeff Capel III’s team seriously just yet.

10. Notre Dame (5-1)

LW: 8

The Fighting Irish lost to the 1st team they’ve played this season with a pulse, falling by 12 to Saint Bonaventure at the Gotham Classic on Black Friday. Nate Laszewski had 11 points and 8 rebounds and freshman Ven-Allen Lubin pulled down 13 boards to go with 10 points for the Fighting Irish in the loss, but for now, Notre Dame’s lack of depth (6-man rotation) and rebounding issues (350th in the country and last in the Power 6 on the offensive glass) are limiting the Fighting Irish’s ceiling.

9. Boston College (5-2)

LW: 12

The Eagles won 2 games against decent competition last week, upending usually stout mid-major Wyoming at the Paradise Jam and then closing the week with a victory over Atlantic 10 mainstay Rhode Island. More useful than the victories is the fact Jaeden Zackery appears to have found his shooting stroke again. Zackery scored 16 points in both wins and when he scores, Makai Ashton-Langford has the help he needs in the backcourt to make the Eagles a formidable opponent.

8. Clemson (5-2)

LW: 9

Clemson placed 3rd at the Emerald Classic in Florida, falling to No. 25 Iowa in an outstanding game and then handling Cal to finish 3rd. Considering the Tigers’ best player, PJ Hall, scored 0 points against the Hawkeyes and didn’t grab a rebound against Cal, a 1-1 trip to Niceville is somewhat encouraging for Brad Brownell’s team. At some point, though, you have to wonder if Hall rushed his return after offseason surgery, as he has struggled mightily since surprising most everyone by returning in mid-November. Clemson needs the big man to truly be a NCAA Tournament-caliber team in 2022-23.

7. Wake Forest (6-1)

LW: 10

The Demon Deacons handled 2 games with ease this week against SC State and Hampton, continuing to play electric offense. Wake Forest is up to 38th in effective field-goal percentage nationally, per Bart Torvik, a testament to Steve Forbes’ ability to scheme up open looks, as well as his team’s ability to knock down shots.

6. Virginia Tech (6-1)

LW: 4

A struggle of a victory over Charleston Southern is how Virginia Tech responded to losing to Charleston’s other basketball team, College of Charleston, in the Charleston Classic last week. Our guess? The Hokies have had enough of Charleston-associated things this season. Computers continue to love Mike Young’s team, which ranks 17th nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency, per Bart Torvik. We just aren’t sold yet, because the Hokies manage to play so many close games thanks to a failure to get stops consistently.

5. Miami (6-1)

LW: 5

The Hurricanes grabbed a nice road win Sunday, beating Central Florida 66-64 at Addition Financial Arena in Orlando. The best news for the U? Nijel Pack, among the biggest names in the portal last offseason, broke out of his early-season slump and poured in 39 points over Miami’s 2 games last week.

Miami is a 2nd-weekend threat if the guards play well, and they were splendid last week, a good sign for a team with a vastly improved frontcourt.

4. NC State (6-1)

LW: 6

NC State was the big winner during Feast Week, impressing the country with a hard-fought game against reigning national champion Kansas and then 2 quality wins to follow it on their way to a 5th-place finish at the Battle 4 Atlantis. NC State’s rout of Dayton in its 1st consolation game was the better of the 2 wins (Butler being the other), for 2 reasons. First, the Pack really locked down defensively, especially beyond the arc, where Dayton shot just 18%. Second, NC State won despite a rough night from their star, Terquavion Smith, who shot just 4-for-13 from the field and committed a career-high 8 turnovers. Last season, NC State would have no chance if Smith played poorly. This season, Kevin Keatts can lean on other players, like Ole Miss transfer Jarkel Joiner (27 points, 2 steals, 0 turnovers at the point guard spot vs. Dayton) to fill the void. NC State is a good team, and it could be as good as 9-1 before the next big test, a Dec. 10 trip to Coral Gables to play Miami.

3. Duke (6-2)

LW: 3

The Blue Devils finished 2nd in a tough Phil Knight Legacy field in Portland, Ore., falling to Zach Edey and Purdue in the championship game Sunday. Duke did get a sensational tournament from point guard Jeremy Roach, who had 21 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals in the semifinal win against Xavier. But it continues to miss the type of production it will need from the 2 top-10 freshmen, Dariq Whitehead and Dereck Lively II, to be elite. Whitehead averaged just 6 points per game and struggled to shoot in Portland; Lively II was even worse, scoring just 4 points over 3 games. The good news? The Blue Devils avoided disaster, rallying to defeat Oregon State by 3 in the tournament opener. A loss to the Beavers would have been the type of Quad 3 loss that really stings on Selection Sunday.

2. North Carolina (5-2)

LW: 1

The Tar Heels left the PK 85 with more questions than answers, finishing 4th with a 1-2 record after a semifinal loss to Iowa State and a 3rd-place game defeat to then-No. 18 Alabama. The Tar Heels fell from No. 1 to 18th in the rankings this week after the losses. That might be a good thing for a Carolina team that really has struggled defensively this season. The Tar Heels rank 85th in adjusted defensive efficiency, per Bart Torvik, and it was their inability to get stops that haunted them in both losses this past week. The biggest issues, as you’d expect with Armando Bacot protecting the rim, are on the perimeter. Alabama shot 16-for-38 from deep, a ridiculous 42% on immense volume.

Iowa State was even better, with Caleb Grill connecting on logo 3s on his way to a 31-point performance that led the Cyclones, who shot 45% from deep on the night.

North Carolina isn’t in trouble yet, but it is the hunted now, as opposed to the hunter. That’s a significant mental adjustment, and the Tar Heels appear to still be acclimating to that reality.

1. Virginia (5-0)

LW: 2

The Cavaliers take over the top spot after Duke and North Carolina’s Portland mishaps. The Hoos played just once last week, a pedestrian 27-point victory over Maryland-Eastern Shore. A better test, on the road at Michigan, will await Tuesday night in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
