ACC Preseason Poll Out: Maryland #5, Vasquez In First Team

Today was the ACC basketball media day (almost there), and with that comes the ACC preseason poll. Pretty expected, except for Clemson's high ranking and Georgia Tech's first place votes:

1. Duke (25 first-place votes) 545 points

1. North Carolina (20) 545

3. Clemson 409

4. Georgia Tech (2) 387

5. Maryland 378

6. Wake Forest (1) 315

7. Florida State 314

8. Virginia Tech 273

9. Boston College 251

10. Miami 135

11. Virginia 116

12. N.C. State 76


Greivis Vasquez, Maryland 45 votes

Trevor Booker, Clemson 44

Kyle Singler, Duke 43

Malcolm Delaney, Virginia 24

Ed Davis, UNC 21


Singler 19

Vasquez 15

Booker 8

Not really sure I agree with Duke being so high with basically only two established guards on their team and no Gerald Henderson, but pretty straightforward.

It was great to see Vasquez near-unanimous first team, though I think he maybe should've been the POY too (just my inner homer speaking). Singler is perennially overrated, unfortunately.

Any thoughts, other than "Thank god for basketball season"?
