The ACC named its different players of the year on Sunday which was led by Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon winning Player of the Year over UNC’s Brice Johnson. Brogdon was also named the Defensive Player of the Year over Johnson. Here’s a comparison of the two players:
Johnson’s per game stats and advanced stats are generally better than Brogdon’s per game stats and advanced stats, especially in the defensive categories. Johnson has a 91.4 defensive rating while Brogdon’s is 99.7 (the lower the number the better) and Johnson is averaging more steals and blocks on the season as well.
Clemson’s Jaron Blossomgame was named the Most Improved Player of the Year, UNC’s Isaiah Hicks was named sixth man of the year and Duke’s Brandon Ingram was named Freshman of the Year to give the Blue Devils their third straight winner of that award.
