Week-By-Week Breakdowns


Week 12

Winner: Pitt's Lamar Patterson - Patterson went 7-28 with 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 7 turnovers in two losses. Also played just 28 min vs UVA because of foul trouble. Rough week for Patterson, who was my clubhouse leader for ACC POY at this time last week.

Runner-up: Virginia Tech's Devin Wilson - Wilson finished 3-11 with 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 6 turnovers in an amazing 78 minutes over two games. Some impressive non-contribution.


Week 11

Winner: Miami's Garrius Adams

Runner-up: Clemson's K.J. McDaniels


Week 10

Winner: Georgia Tech's Trea Golden -  Golden shot 9-for-28 from the field in 75(!) minutes over two games, but most importantly had three assists and 10 turnovers.

Runner-up: Wake Forest's Travis McKie  - McKie was 1-for-10 from the floor with five boards in 56 minutes, adding two assists and three turnovers.

Week 9

Winner: North Carolina's Leslie McDonald -  McDonald went a combined 4-for-17, 2-for-10 from 3 in two losses for the Heels. Two rebounds, five assists in 45 combined minutes.

Runner-up: NC State's Anthony 'Cat' Barber and Wake Forest's Codi Miller-McIntyre - Barber finished the week 5-for-18 from the field with two assists in 48 minutes. CMM went 5-for-20 with 6 assists in 64 minutes of play.

Week 8

Winner: Florida State's Ian Miller -  Miller went 2-for-8 from the floor, had seven turnovers and fouled out as the Seminoles got waxed at home by Virginia.

Runner-up: Boston College's  Ryan Anderson - Anderson went 2-for-10 with six turnovers and just two rebounds  in 33 minutes as BC fell to 4-11 on the season.

Week 7

Winner: Virginia Tech's Jarell Eddie -  who's 1-for-12 performance  (4 points, 3 TOs) against UNCG helped the Hokies lose to a terrible team at home.

Runner-up: Boston College's  Olivier Hanlan,who shot 3-10 (1-7 from 3) and had seven turnovers in a loss to VCU.

Week 6

Winner: Maryland's Evan Smotrycz - who shot a combined 4-for-20 over two games, including a 1-for-12 performance in a near to loss to Florida Atlantic. 

Runner-up: Boston College's Eddie Odio - who submitted an amazing 14 minutes, four foul performance in a loss to Maryland, then followed it up with a respectable 25 minutes, five point showing later in the week.

Week 5 (selections and comments by Lauren Brownlow)

Winner: Wake Forest's Madison Jones - This was a tough choice, because he didn’t play very much (34 minutes in two games) and Wake won both games. But Jones, a sophomore guard, didn’t do anything very well in that span. He scored one point in 34 total minutes, adding two rebounds, four assists, five fouls and EIGHT turnovers. 


Runner-up: Boston College's Olivier Hanlan was a close second here. He didn’t start at USC for what was termed “undisclosed disciplinary reasons”, and in two games last week (both losses) he had a total of 21 points on 8-of-20 shooting and added three assists, five fouls and six turnovers. Obviously, BC won’t win many games that he plays that poorly. Not that BC has won that many games this year anyway.


Week 4

Winner: Georgia Tech's Chris Bolden an unprecedented back-to-back Worst Player of the Week award. Bolden started three games (two of which GT lost), going a combined 8-for-29 from the floor in 74 minutes and registered three assists. Bolden gets the win over arguably more deserving players because of the way he continues to steal shots from GT's good players.


Runner-up: Wake Forest's
Arnaud-William Adala Moto is our runner up this week. Nine points and 12 fouls in 50 minutes over three games (two WF losses)


Week 3

Winner: Georgia Tech's Chris Bolden who finished the week 2-for-16 with 6 points, 6 fouls and two turnovers in 36 minutes of play.

Runner-up: Duke's Tyler Thorton who I have no good reason for putting here other than he's a foul machine who's a non-entity on offense.


Week 2

Winner: North Carolina's J.P. Tokoto who finished two games with a combined 4-for-15 from the floor, 6-for-20 on FTs and missed the potential game-winner vs Belmont. Tokoto has value to his team - he grabbed 16 rebounds, had 8 assists and just three turnovers in the same two games. He just shouldn't shoot.

Runner-up: Maryland's Shaquille Cleare, a center who had more TOs (6) than rebounds (5) or points (3) in 33 minutes this week. Cleare only lost out this week because he failed to cause an entire fanbase to melt down on his own, at least that I'm aware of.

Week 1

Winner: Miami's Garrius Adams, who went 4-18 and an incredible 0-8 from 3 in an OT loss to St. Francis.

Runner-up: Boston College's Eddie Odio who combined for more fouls (7) than points (4) as BC lost two games to open the year.
