No love for Virginia, Virginia Tech on ACC media day

The votes are in (and yes, we had one) from ACC media day in Greensboro.

No surprise that Duke is the favorite to win the league and Jasmine Thomas gets the nod for Preseason Player of the Year. Not much faith put in Virginia and Virginia Tech (picked to finish 10th and 11th, respectively), but we're thinking both teams will eek out a few wins to improve on that.

Here are the ACC picks as selected by local and national media and selected representatives from the schools:

2010-11 Predicted Order of Finish (First Place Votes)
 1. Duke (24)
2. North Carolina (6)
3. Florida State (2)
4. Maryland
5. Georgia Tech

7. Boston College
8. Miami
9. Wake Forest
10. Virginia
11. Virginia Tech
12. Clemson

  1. As a fan of Virginia Cavaliers, I think I like this poll mainly because this poll surely will motivate the team to prove everyone else wrong.
