    POY - Jared Dudley
    ROY - Brandan Wright

    All ACC 1st Team - Singletary, Dowdell, Dudley, Thornton, Hanstravel


    feldspar - My only disagreement with your list 1st team list would be that you have Thornton as POY but not 1st team ACC.


    *edited - meant to put Singletary not Reynolds

    I couldn't remember if the ACC does like other leagues and does not inlcude the POY in the All-Conference selection.

    The ROY award

    I think the ROY award should go to his Coka-cola commercial where he tells the story of his mother leaving him dimes on the counter each morning so he could have a drink after school with his buddies.

    It brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it.

    The only one I feel strongly about:

    POY: Sean Singletary

    Three reasons:

    Carried the load at Virginia.

    Freakishly good individual play at times.

    Other candidates have worse defects. Particularly Dudley. Really think he showed mental weakness in Duke loss and other recent games.

    Leito is more likely to get COY than Singletary to get POY, where it should be reversed, IMO.

    Bird - I'm not sure you can say that Singletary carried the load at Virginia when JR Reynolds has been averaging 21 ppg in ACC games.

    Plus, he has Jason Cain you know...

    Then I'd definitely replace Crittenton with Thornton. Also, I must have been reading theACC.com's stats wrong, because I could have sworn that Reynolds actually had better numbers than Singletary, but looking back I guess not.

    So, I'm going with Thornton as POY, All-ACC: Singletary, Dudley, Dowdell, Thornton, Hansblahblah.

    It seems the first team all acc is pretty much a consensus pick.

    Dowdell, Singletary, Thornton, Dudley, Hanstravel

    I think in the ACC, the top vote getter for 1st team All-ACC is crowned the POY. I believe that's how it usually works
    2003-2004 HLM

    Duke | Mirecourt | Detroit| The U | USA

    No, I'm pretty sure it's a separate ballot. The two awards are announced separately.

    Singletary v. Reynolds

    Carlos says: "Bird - I'm not sure you can say that Singletary carried the load at Virginia when JR Reynolds has been averaging 21 ppg in ACC games."

    You are correct, of course. Looking at the season stats, Singleltary and Reynolds have similar profiles:

    Season:

    Scoring

    Singletary 18.2 per game
    Reynolds 18.5 per game (Reynolds edged up in ACC play)

    Minutes played:

    Singletary 32.9
    Reynolds 32.0

    Rebounds

    Singletary 4.4 per game
    Reynolds 4.2 per game

    Assists

    Singletary 128 total
    Reynolds 103 total

    Steals

    Singletary 36 total
    Reynolds 23 total

    All ACC Awards

    I believe that the sportswriters pick three teams. My choices:

    1st team: Dudley, Thornton, Dowdell, Singletary and Hansbrough
    2nd team: Reynolds, McRoberts, Rice, Visser, Crittenton
    3rd team: Wright, Gist, Nelson, Strawberry, Costner

    POY Singletary

    COY Leitao

    The last time I saw the stats Dudley led the ACC in scoring and rebounding, so it is hard not to give it to him..........even though I would love to see someone else get it like Thornton or Singletary bc they show some class and don't whine and brag 24/7.

    Too many votes for Leitao, imo. What's his signature win? The 2-pt squeaker against Duke at home? Greenberg has two scalps of UNC and a victory over Duke in Cameron. He's a no-brainer choice if he completes the sweep of UVA/Leitao this week.

    POY will go to Dudley
    ROY will go to Wright
    COY will go to Greenberg

    Coy

    If you don't get your guys up to win against Wake for the outright title- that should do you in right there. I think Gary Williams might get it given how they have played down the stretch.
