2011 ACC Basketball Media Day: Boston College Picked Last In Preseason Poll

On Wednesday, the ACC held its 2011-12 Basketball Media Day down in Charlotte, which means the preseason media poll was released. As you would expect, Boston College finished 12th (last in the conference), receiving just 90 votes. North Carolina and Duke ran away with the top two spots (natch), with the Heels earning 57 of a possible 59 first-place votes.

The rest of the preseason poll below.

1. North Carolina Tar Heels (57) 706
2. Duke Blue Devils (2) 649
3. Florida St. Seminoles 560
4. Virginia Cavaliers 463
5. Miami Hurricanes 455
6. Virginia Tech Hokies 411
7. Clemson Tigers 403
8. N.C. State Wolfpack 316
9. Maryland Terrapins 264
10. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 176
11. Wake Forest Demon Deacons 109
12. Boston College Eagles 90

North Carolina's Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Tyler Zeller were named to the Preseason All-ACC team, joined by Miami's Malcolm Grant, Duke's Seth Curry and Virginia's Mike Scott. Harrison Barnes was the runaway selection for Preseason Player of the Year, while Duke's Austin Rivers is your Preseason Rookie of the Year.

The good news, if there is any, is that the Eagles miss playing the top 4 teams in the preseason media poll -- North Carolina, Duke, Florida State and Virginia -- twice this season. Instead, BC draw Miami (#5), Virginia Tech (#6), N.C. State (#8), Georgia Tech (#10) and Wake Forest (#11) twice this season, making for one of the easier conference schedules this season.

Nowhere to go but up, right? Any bold season predictions?
