ACC Preseason Basketball Poll
The ACC media released their preseason poll today and unsurprisingly Duke was a unanimous selection to finish first. After a bit of a rebuilding year for the Blue Devils, if winning the ACC Title and going to the Sweet 16 can be called rebuilding, the Blue Devils are restocked and led by outstanding seniors JJ Redick and Shelden Williams. Redick, who graduated from Roanoke's Cave Spring High School, was named preseason player of the year, beating out Williams.
The ACC media gave a lot of respect to newcomer Boston College, who came in second in the preseason poll. As for the Commonwealth's teams, VT is predicted to finish 8th, while UVA is picked to finish in last place. Sadly, we'll have to wait a few more weeks to see if the Hokie's Seth Greenberg can build on last year's success and if UVA's new coach Dave Leitao can right the ship in C'ville.
