With the decade coming to a close, it is time to reflect on some of the players who defined the ACC in the 2000s.
These lists are always difficult to compile. Do you go with the best players overall, even if they lasted only one or two seasons?
Do you go with the players who meant everything to their teams? Players that define the program and have a place in its history.
Do you select players based on statistics and awards? What about the most important statistic of all: victories?
This list attempts to balance all of these factors. Some of the names made their mark even more pronounced in the pro ranks, while other names have never found success in the NBA.
Nevertheless, they represent the best and the brightest of this decade and, as you would imagine, the titans of Tobacco Road dominate the list.
