The final weekend of the ACC's regular season produced more standout performances than most could count. Two players scored at least 30 points (one scored 42) with double-digit rebounds. Enough players scored 20 points in a game to fill out a whole school's roster. Here are the top five performances of the ACC weekend (March 8-9).
Fair was the driving force behind Syracuse's win at Florida State on Sunday to close the ACC regular season. He scored 22 points, while adding seven rebounds and four steals, as the Orange defeated the Seminoles, 74-58.
Even though Boston College lost by 10 points at NC State on Sunday (78-68), Hanlan had himself another big day as has been typical this season. Hanlan finished with 29 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the field, and added five rebounds for good measure.
For the second straight week, Patterson checks in at No. 3 after a 30-point game against Clemson in a win on Saturday. Patterson hit 10-of-19 shots from the field. he also grabbed seven rebounds and had two assists.
Always in consideration for a spot on this list, Parker left no doubt about his inclusion over the weekend as the Duke freshman lit up rival North Carolina for 30 points and 11 rebounds in the Blue Devils' 93-81 victory. The win lifted Duke to the third seed for the ACC tournament.
Having scored 83 points in his last two games, Warren put up 42 Sunday (with 13 rebounds) in a win over Boston College, which might give him ACC Player of the Year honors.
