ACC Midseason Report Card Articles (ACC Sports Journal)
D : It’s been an ugly season so far, but with the lack of talent and experience on the roster no coach may have been able to keep the Eagles from a rebuilding year. Still you have to question Donahue’s recruiting job since their young rotation is now mostly full of players he recruited.
