SMU might as well appeal the postseason ban because it's going to be hard for Larry Brown to assemble a group like this again, given the recruiting restrictions he will face, his ever increasing age and the NCAA microscope the program will be under going forward.
The NCAA is a point guard's game so the big story this season in the ACC should be the trio of upperclassmen PG's with tons of experience and a legit shot at making the NBA, which is not a combination you see all that often. Marcus Paige (UNC), Demetrius Jackson (Notre Dame) and Anthony Barber (NC State) are all playing their NBA lives and their teams will go as far as they take them this season.
What Danuel House and Dorian Finney-Smith have in common are physical tools and a skill-set that could allow them to carve out a long career in the NBA as 3-and-D wings.
