List Rules Vote up the ACC schools with the historically best basketball team.

Most years, a list of ACC basketball teams could serve as a list of best college programs in the country. In the 2019 NCAA Tournament, three of the four number 1 seeds came from the ACC. Since 2001, ACC teams have won seven national championships, with the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels doing most of the damage.

Players like Michael Jordan, Rick Barry, Grant Hill and others who could be considered the best NBA players of all time have come from teams in the ACC. Some of the best current NBA players like Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum also came out of ACC basketball programs.

So vote for your favorites, vote for the best and come back to find who fans think is the best ACC basketball team. So vote below and make your voice heard, then head over and check out the best football teams in the ACC.
