ACC Rookie of the Year (nobody tell him)March 7, 2007 at 10:17 am | Posted in Basketball, Ed Geth | Leave a comment
Brandan Wright has been named ACC rookie of the year, beating out Georgia Tech guard Javaris Crittenton and Cow College redshirt freshman Brandon Costner. This is the third RoY that UNC has fielded in as many years, with Wright following Tyler Hansbrough and Marvin Williams to the honor.
Wright finished the regular season hitting a staggering 66 percent of his shots, averaging 14.9 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
I eat, sleep, and breathe on the fence when it comes to players going pro. In these times of confusion, I trust in the counseling that the coaches provide, let the chips fall where they may and hope for the best. In the meantime, let’s all raise a glass to Brandan Wright for his accomplishment this Friday at noon. Please don’t tell my boss.
