Guard Olivier Hanlan was ACC Freshman of the Year and the only rookie to earn an honorable mention for the all-ACC teams. He has failed to score in double figures during only two league games (wins against Wake Forest and Clemson).
Number to know
1 Total wins the Eagles have against the top six ACC teams (53-52 over Virginia after the Cavaliers beat Duke).
