GP's Naismith Award Top 30 ballot

How about Terrell Stoglin?  If you lead the ACC in scoring, by a wide margin, as a sophomore you should be a candidate for the player of the year.

Gary, why is Tyler Zeller not on this list?!? How can you have Kendal Marshall, Harisson Barnes and... Mason Plumlee on this list ahead of Zeller? Zeller has easily been UNC's best player since conference play started.
