While we’ve been working on ACC previews, it struck us just how many players were from this state. So we thought we’d break it down.

Boston College, Florida State, Miami and Syracuse don’t have any this year but last year, FSU had Patrick Williams, who will soon be a first-round draft pick. Not too long ago, Boston College had four North Carolina players - Ky Bowman (Havelock), Jerome Robinson (Raleigh) and the Hamilton brothers, Jarius and Jared, from Charlotte.

It’s not surprising of course. North Carolina is a basketball state and the ACC is the best basketball conference.

It just seems like a lot more players are playing in the conference than ever before and it speaks to the state’s love of basketball.
