The Fizz’s Men’s Basketball ACC Preseason Awards

There is good news and there’s bad news. Let’s start with the bad– Syracuse Football lost again this weekend and is off to its worst start since 2005. But here’s the good news– Syracuse Men’s Basketball is gearing up for its season that is just around the corner.

As everyone gets ready for the college basketball season, the media has been sending in their ballots for the ACC Preseason Awards and Poll. Selected journalists are asked to create a preseason All-ACC starting five, pick someone for the Preseason Player of the Year and Preseason Rookie of the Year, and rank the ACC teams in expected order that they’ll finish. I thought it would be a fun exercise to partake in and compare it to the actual results. So here are my preseason awards with the tweets to the real awards:
