My All-ACC Candidate List

Because of the quick turnaround between the final game of the season and the All-ACC ballots being due, you have to start this legwork early. This is my exercise at getting the list of candidates to a manageable number.


My basic criteria were
1. Offensive rating for the season over 100
2. Used in more than 20% of their team's possessions
3. Played at least 25 minutes per game

The 20% usage criteria cut off a group of seven players, I added four of them back on the list:
Rasheed Sulaimon -19.7 usage %, which is so close I'm not leaving him off
Reggie Bullock - He's an All-ACC player with no doubt
Daniel Miller - Criminally underrated, I at least want to take a closer look
Scott Wood - Most efficient player in league

One other player, James Michael McAdoo, was so surprising so far off the offensive rating chart he doesn't come close to qualifying based on my criteria. I've added him back since I'm almost certain he will get votes, though expect me to be arguing against him pretty loudly for the next week.

Here's the final candidate list, a total of 30 players that will need to be chopped in half in just 10 days (stats are sortable if you click on the header).
