    I swear swofford is paying players to go pro just so an average unc team can get back to the top

    after UNC, conference should be pretty wide open next year

    UNC

    Duke
    UVA

    Louisville
    Va Tech
    FSU
    Miami
    Notre Dame
    NC State
    Syracuse

    Pitt
    Wake Forest
    Clemson
    BC
    Ga Tech

    Wake picked a good year to return everybody. Could move up to that upper half.

    I'm actually kind of annoyed by all these stupid programs who can't hold on to their best players, seems like FSU could make a decent jump, and Victor's pretty adamant about Cuse being good next year

    i don't know how your two biggest rivals winning a title in consecutive years will help your feels

    it's a bold strategy cotton. let's see if it pays off

    I am also legitimately sad not only that Anderson left (obviously) but that every #toptier team lost an underclassman to the draft, except that UNC's underclassman was a shithead who was good for as many turnovers as good plays per game.

    I have heard of FSU and Miami as the dark horse contenders next year. I also expect Virginia Tech to be much improved, if not obviously so yet.

    Duke will be interesting to watch with so much turnover, but you can count on them and Syracuse to always be competitive. Louisville is another question mark team.

    Georgia Tech and BC will continue to fuel their dumpster fires.

    Anyone know what's going on at Pitt? Are they expected to return to being good any time soon? Was last year a rebuilding year? I thought they were a good fit for the conference but I kind of consistently forget about them.

    Plus Sean Obi (not going to be a star, but could be a poor mans Richard Howell) but if anyone wants to loan us a point guard that would be cool.

    They also appear to have a 5* #18 in the country combo guard for 2016. Will be good to have them competitive again. League is so deep. Really only the two programs I mentioned above in bad shape.

    You can do that when your 3 (tokoto) can guard 2s and can distribute the ball (JP's assist numbers were close to those of Paige). Neither is true of Ingram, from what I've seen.

    the 2 and 3 are interchangable for roy so its not really necessary to pigeon hole one player as a 2 or a 3

    I think he'll take a big step forward. Talented player.

    As for the wing discussion, our 2/3s are interchangeable too but you still need to match up with the other team. Ingram isn't quick laterally, thus my concern about him guarding 2s. Don't think you want him in that situation, especially as a frosh.

    i agree on theo stepping forward but he is pretty much a freshman again. missed so much of conference play that he is still more raw than what we'd like as a rising sophomore

    i think roy starts with the two pg lineup of berry and paige and would use ingram as a super sub a la marvin williams in 2005. he'll get starter minutes but be the 6th man to spell justin and marcus.

    not to be "that guy" but how the hell was XRM not at least 3rd team ACC?

    He also became the first freshman in ACC history to score 30 or more points three times and finished in the top 10 in the ACC in scoring. He scored 35 points against both North Carolina (Jan. 24) and Miami (Feb. 25) and scored 30 points against Clemson in the ACC Tournament (March 11).

    now i figured out who kenny williams is.

    was just reading up on him yesterday.

    i think he's ours if we want him but he's definitely gonna have to wait for ingram and jaylen to announce

    so yes to your question

    simple question to answer it:

    who do you take off in favor of him as far as guards?

    he is amazing but i dont think he had a better year than any of the guards that actually made it

    i'm not sure Ingram is an instant impact guy. I look at him as more on the Justin Jackson path of struggling a lot for most of the season and finding his shot/role late.

    Huge upside and some think he's the best NBA prospect in the class, but dude's rail thin and not an elite athlete.
