Updated ACC stats.

Anybody care to guess which team leads the conference in turnover margin? You're right- Virginia Tech.

Seriously, though, trying to analyze stats when conference play hasn't begun is comparing apples to oranges. But a couple of things stand out:

Georgia Tech ranks last in 3-point field goal percentage. During its first three games, the Jackets have made only 18 of 63 3-point attempts. Tech also ranks next-to-last in field goal percentage, hitting 81 of 188 shots. Tech also ranks 9th in free throww percentage, hitting 33 of 57 field goals;

N.C. State tops the league in scoring offense, scoring margin. field goal percentage, 3-point field goal percentage. rebounding defense, assists, assist-turnover ratio and three-point field goals made;

Newcomer Miami is tied with Duke in offensive rebounds, averaging 17 per game;

Clemson leads the league in steals with just over 19 per game, while the Wolfpack is next-to-last with just under 8 per game.

Again, comparing stats is more fun when conference play starts. But if Georgia Tech is shooting this bad now.....
