The Atlantic Coast Conference media gathered in Charlotte last week to tip-off the basketball season by listening to the coaches and players of the league’s 15 schools. The media also submitted its preseason poll, selections for 1st and 2nd team members, and choice for ACC preseason “Player of the Year”. Those results were released on Tuesday with not much optimism for Brad Brownell and the Clemson Tigers. However, as is often the case, the media has plenty of faith in North Carolina, Duke, and Virginia.
