Daily Dribble: Top 25 Players in the ACC

October 10th, 2007

This is the first of a new series ranking the Top 25 players from the Major Conferences. After the BCS conferences are through, I'll be moving on to the Top 10 from the 2nd tier leagues.

Up first is the ACC, which is loaded with talent. I've already finished the Big Ten ranking and the disparity between these two leagues is pretty amazing.

Feel free to disagree with my selections.. there's certainly many different ways this ranking could go.

G. Chris Lofton, SR, Tennessee
F. Chase Budinger, SO, Arizona
F. Tyler Hansbrough, Jr, North Carolina
C. Roy Hibbert, SR, Georgetown

2007-08 ACC Stats Preview

September 16th, 2007

This is the first of what will be six mini statistical previews of the major conferences. Each one includes projected starting lineups, projected stats for each player, and a short comment.

Boston College

G Tyrese Rice - 19, 3, 5
G Biko Paris - 6, 2, 4
F Rakim Sanders - 7, 4, 2
F Shamari Spears - 9, 5, 1
C John Oates - 8, 5, 1
6 Tyrelle Blair - 4, 6, 0

This lineup is by no means certain. If Paris doesn't perform, Rice could simply handle point guard duties. Blair also could get the minutes over Oates due to his defensive presence.

All-American Lineup Rundown

August 13th, 2007
No surprise that Coach K's 2007-08 squad will feature the most McDonald's All-Americans with a whopping 8, including three freshmen.

Below is a lengthy compilation of the projected starting five's of all 35 teams that include a single McDonald's All-Americans, in order of how many award winners fill the roster.

Top 10 Teammates in NBA Draft History

June 21st, 2007
The Florida Gators didn’t just make history on the basketball court this past season - they are now poised to make it in the NBA draft.  Three Gator teammates – Joakim Noah, Corey Brewer and Al Horford – are all projected to be top 10 picks in this month’s draft.  Three teammates have never gone in the top 10 in the same draft in the history of the draft – that is 60 drafts in total.
