the acc next year is gonna be incredible. first is the merger of the acc and big east, which will already make the conference better. then add the fact that jabari parker is going to duke. now throw in the wild card in the acc, i really beleive julius randle will go to nc state and i think wiggins will land there too, either at fsu or north carolina obviosly. im gonna go with north carolina there, because they have way more to offer than fsu. so if we assume for a minute that both randle and wiggins land in the acc, thats a pretty power packed conference with three college stars and a bunch of great second and third year players. sounds like it would be quite a year of competition. im praying for this because i love the acc more than any other conference in college basketball.
Wow Randle, Parker, and Wiggins all on Tobacco Road. T.J. Warren and Julius Randle on the frontline together would be deadly! Both players can score from anywhere on the floor
I feel obligated to throw UVA out there. Undefeated against top 50 RPI opponents this year, and we're returning everyone except our starting PG, Jontel Evans, but is loss won't be felt too much as we have 2 PGs who have started this season returning and 2 solid PG recruits coming in. Probably a top 3 team in the ACC next season.
UVA isn't real. They'll lose about 4-5 more games and not make it to the tourney. If they're on the bubble, then they won't get in with those terrible 3 losses to the CAA teams including the loss to 3-22 Old Dominion. Next year they'll be middle of the pack at best, only reason they're #3 in ACC this year is because it's a down year. Sorry just being honest, there's a reason why UVA couldn't even make the top 10 lists of the two top 40 recruits from VA this year.
People were down on UVA on this site before the season even started, and now they're 3rd in the ACC. They're not as sexy as a Duke or UNC or NC State, but they win games. If they don't make it to the tournament I'll never come back to this site again.
I don't think Syracuse will win the ACC assuming that MCW makes the jump to the NBA, but they should be one of the better teams, returning CJ Fair, Jerami Grant, Christmas, Coleman, and getting Gbinije and Tyler Ennis.
