ACC coaches talk up incoming freshmen


I recently caught up with all 12 of the ACC head coaches at their media day. Here are their thoughts on some of their incoming freshmen:

Boston College coach Steve Donahue

Ryan Anderson: "He's a very skilled player who can really pass the ball. He needs to learn that he must work harder than he ever did before. Great kid with a good understanding of the game."

Clemson coach Brad Brownell

K.J. McDaniels: "Makes athletic plays above the rim, such as offensive tip-dunks and blocks ... things you can't coach."

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski

Alex Murphy: "He can be a key player for us. At 6-8, he is a heck of an athlete who can defend on the perimeter."

Austin Rivers: "I'm very impressed with his willingness to learn, for someone who was a dominating scorer in high school. He needs to learn what it means to score at this level; along with his defense and rebounding."

Marshall Plumlee: "He added 20 ponds of muscle over the summer."
