* CLEMSON TAKES ACC OPENER. Tournament week began Tuesday with a first-round ACC game between Clemson and Virginia Tech. The No. 9 seed Tigers advanced with a 2-0 win thanks to a pair of goals by Nathan Thornton. Their reward: a quarterfinal match with top seed Wake Forest on Wednesday at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. "I'm very happy for the guys," said Clemson coach Paul Hindson.  "It prolongs the season another day and we'll see what happens tomorrow.  It was a good performance and they worked really hard.  We're just happy to move on."

-- In the Horizon League quarterfinals, Valparaiso defeated Milwaukee, 4-0, in a game marred by a brawl, while UIC's season came to an end when it fell at Cleveland State in a shootout.
