The Future Of The Acc

April 7, 2003 ACC Sports Journal readers like the usual preseason previews and postseason reviews as much as anyone else, but they've always said they particularly enjoy one of our annual features that focuses on the "bigger picture" at each of the conference's nine basketball programs. This year's "Future Of The ACC" articles include insightful contributions from nine of the league's top sportswriters, plus a review of each team's performance over the last decade and an early glance at each team's projected 2003-04 roster. The text focuses not on next year's ACC race specifically but rather the variables that will affect the future of each program in the longer term. Among the topics discussed are the identity/stability of the head coaching position, the quality of the staff, the depth of quality young talent on the roster, the level of administrative/financial commitment to the program, history/tradition and fan support. You'll never see anything else quite like it. 1. Duke Krzyzewski's Program Remains Model For Everyone Else
