I'm thinking Raines has much more than a "solid year" next season. He looked like the best "ACC caliber" player on the team at the end of the year to me, and hope he continues improving. I'm thinking he'll become an "All ACC player" by the end of the year. I'm expecting a lot, but he looked really good at the end of last season...really good.
I agree, to me Raines looked like the best big man we have had in a long time. And probably the best overall player we have had since 07.
