Look at heavy-weight/high powered weaponry other ACC clubs brought to NCAAT

Notre Dame - Bonzie Colson, Steve Vasturia, Matt Farrell, V.J. Beachem
Louisville - Donovan Mitchell
Florida State - Xavier Rathan-Mayes, Jonathan Isaac, Dwayne Bacon
Duke - Luke Kennard, Jayson Tatum, Matt Jones, Frank Jackson, Amile Jefferson, Grayson Allen
Virginia Tech - Seth Allen, Zach LeDay, Justin Bibbs
Miami - Devon Reed, Ja'Quan Newton
Wake Forest - John Collins
UNC - Justin Jackson, Kennedy Meeks, Joel Berry

Yet, only North Carolina outlasted us in the NCAAT. For all the glitter and hype of the other clubs, we did just as well in the "Big Dance" as Duke, Louisville, Miami, ND and FSU ... and better than the Hokies and WF.

And with a lone senior, four juniors, two sophomores and three freshmen.

That's perspective, gentlemen. Other fan bases would likely take any of the aforementioned rosters over ours. Yet we hung in there all season and still came up with 23 victories, a winning regular ACC season and a pair of post-season wins in the ACCT and NCAAT.

And we can look forward to further development from all of our players and a few key additions who will only make our club stronger next season.
