UNC Picked Fourth in ACC Coastal Division

New, comments

The ACC preseason poll is out and UNC has been picked to finish fourth in the Coastal Division in what looks like a fair amount of vote splitting.

UNC received 27 first place votes, one of six teams to get a nod for the top of the division. The Tar Heels finished one point behind third place Virginia Tech. Miami was the choice to win the division followed by Duke. Georgia Tech, Pitt and Virginia(the only team not to receive a first place vote) rounded out the lineup in the Coastal. Given the significant fracturing of the vote in the Coastal it stands to reason any one of four or five teams could win it.

In the Atlantic Division, FSU was picked to win the division and  the ACC Championship by a wide margin.

Here is the full list via the ACC.
