10 ACC Facts Part 1

By Mychal Hunter

I will be releasing these randomly as I find interesting things. A lot of today’s is stuff I found during the returning players countdown. I thought a couple of these were pretty interesting, especially number 10.


  1. If Kyle Guy received the same shot volume as Trae Young last year and maintained his percentages, he would have averaged more than 25 points per game
  2. Luke Maye was the only player in the country last year to average more than 15 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists and shoot better than 40% from deep.
  3. Tyus Battle played 96.2% of Syracuse’s 1500 game minutes last season.
  4. Battle, Oshae Brissett and Frank Howard put up the top 3 minutes played seasons in the ACC since 2010-11 last season.
  5. Jose Alvarado was one of only three freshman in the country to average 12/3/3 and shoot 37% or better from distance. The other two were Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of Kentucky and Teyvion Kirk of Ohio
  6. Four players averaged better than 8 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds and 1.5 assists last year. Trae Young, Jordan McGlaughlin, Devonte Graham and Markell Johnson
  7. Virginia has finished in the top 50 of both offensive and defensive efficiency (according to kenpom) each of the last four seasons.
  8. Georgia Tech has had one winning season in the ACC since the 1996-97 season.
  9. Coach K has not won an ACC COTY award in 18 seasons
  10. It has only been two full seasons since Pitt won 20 games.
