John Henson insisted he and coach Roy Williams were agreed that the UNC freshman's NBA future lay on the perimeter. Perhaps. His college career, however, has so far been a different story. Henson was the worst foul shooter among ACC regulars, had 10 more turnovers than assists, and made 22.2 percent of his 3-pointers.

Wake Forest finished 20-11in 2010 and coach Dino Gaudio was fired. Three of Wake's losses - at Miami, Virginia Tech, and Florida State - were by four or fewer points. Imagine how different things might have been if playmaker Ish Smith had converted free throws at his 2009 rate (.789, 30-38), rather than with the fecklessness that marked his senior effort (.494).
Only Georgia Tech and Miami did not have a player among the ACC's dozen least-accurate regulars in 2010.
