I don’t know the Javaris Crittenton that was arrested by the Federal Bereau of Investigation at the John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California this week.

That Javaris Crittenton was wanted for murder. He was on a Most Wanted poster. He allegedly shot a 22-year-old mother of four from a car. He was on the run. His mugshot was posted on every major media outlet in America.

Number 79 – Glen Rice, SF, Jr., Georgia Tech

The ACC-Big Ten Challenge was last month and truth be told, the match-ups are not the most enticing as they have been in year’s past.

The talent in the middle isn’t as a strong as it has been for both conferences. Because of that, the overall challenge doesn’t jump out as a must-see series.

Everyone loves rankings. So why not rank the games from worst to first in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge? Continue reading
