Someone's always scoring a zillion points against us!

Marshall, Marshall, Marshall! - Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Here it is, my first ever fanpost. I hope not to bore everyone to death.

In this post by Omega Wolf, he mentioned Marshall Wood's high output game against the Wolfpack earlier in the year. He also mentioned several other players that lit us up (the 2 Devins, Gamble, Miller), and it got me wondering "do we really give up career highs to players more often than any other team?" It does seem as though every other game some unknown dude becomes an unstoppable scoring machine.

So I got it in my head to look up every player in the ACC and see what their career high is in scoring and against which team they achieved it.

I did all my recording in Excel, and have no idea what the best way to report it would be. I found that cut/paste worked out OK so take a gander at the tables below (players listed in order of points per game):

Madison Jones FR 14 Nebraska 10 NC State

And here is a table summarizing the findings:

Scoring Team
BC CL DK FS GT MD MI NC NS VA VT WF Total
BC 2 2 2 1 1 1 1 2 12
CL 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 9
DK 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 13
FS 1 1 2 1 5
GT 2 1 1 2 1 7
MD 1 1 3 2 2 1 1 11
MI 1 2 1 3 1 1 1 2 12
NC
3 1 1 5
NS 2 2 1 2 1 3 11
VA 2 1 1 1 5
VT 4 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 15
WF 1 1 1 2 3 1 1 2 12

The team across the top represents the scoring team, and the team on the side is the team on which a career high was achieved. The totals on the side reveal what we all already knew, it's hard to score on UVA and FSU. Only 5 players currently own career highs against those two teams.

Surprisingly, Duke led this list with 13 career highs against them. I guess that just goes to show that everyone brings their A game when Duke comes to town.

Miami has like zero returning players next year. Five of their top seven scorers are seniors. Good luck with that.

Both Warren and Wood have a career high of 31, and both have it against Florida State. Wood also recorded his as a freshman.

Erick Green's average this season is higher than his career high before this season (it was 25, and he is currently averaging 25.4 ppg).

Players that currently have conference career highs against us are: Devin Booker (27), Rod Hall (16), Terrence Shannon (12), Devon Bookert (18), Julian Gamble (16), JP Tokoto (12), Joel James (8), Marshall Wood (14), Devin Thomas (25), Madison Jones (10).

I'm not sure what to really take away from this little exercise.
