Fifth on this list comes from another relative newcomer to the ACC. The Pittsburgh Panthers inaugural ACC hoops season was just seven years ago. However, Pitt’s Michael Young made this list of the top 10 statistical seasons of the last decade.

The 6-foot-9 forward from Duquesne, Pa., played all four seasons for the Panthers. During his senior campaign (2016-17), by far his best, Young poured in 19.6 points per game, grabbed 6.8 rebounds per game, and added 4.5 assists per game. Those averages proved just good enough for sixth-best here at 38.8 fantasy points per game (again, just 0.1 points ahead of No. 6 John Mooney).

With 648 points, Young finished third in the conference and garnered All-ACC Third Team honors. A year after finishing ranked as high as 20th in the AP Poll, and despite Young’s tremendous season, the Panthers won just 16 of 33 games (only four of those wins came in conference play).
