Maryland fans were worried about a North Carolina bias in the ACC player of the year voting.
It didn't turn out that way.
Greivis Vasquez got 39 of the 53 votes, while Duke's Jon Scheyer had 12 and Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney had two. That's 73.6 percent of the vote.
As a comparison, Albert King got 71 votes out of at least 104 ballots cast in 1980 (the records are incomplete), for no better than 68.3 percent (and probably lower).
In 1985, Len Bias got 54 of 92 votes accounted for (at least in this year's ACC media guide), good for 58.7 percent.
In 1986, Bias got 81 of 133 votes --- 60.9 percent of the electorate.
In 1995, Joe Smith appeared on 84 of 106 ballots --- 79.2 percent.
And in 2002, Juan Dixon received 41 of 84 votes --- a plurality of the vote at 48.8 percent.
So that's a rather impressive feat on Vasquez's part.
Meanwhile, Maryland's Gary Williams hauled in 42 of 53 votes to win his second ACC coach of the year award. It was the most decisive coach of the year vote since Roy Williams carried 87 percent of the electorate in 2006.
In rookie voting, Georgia Tech's Derrick Favors collected 45 of the 53 votes, with Maryland's Jordan Williams earning six votes.
