Is Michael Gbinije an ACC Player of the Year candidate?

Four games into its ACC slate, Syracuse sits at the bottom of the ACC standings. The Orange are off to an 0-4 start in conference play, and while they’ll have a shot at getting a win against Boston College on Wednesday, that matchup will be followed by road trips to Wake Forest, Duke and Virginia.

Syracuse has already seen its fair share of challenges in the 2015-16 season, including Jim Boeheim’s nine-game suspension that started in non-conference play and ended after a 74-73 overtime loss to Clemson, but one of its veterans has emerged as a go-to threat. Senior guard Michael Gbinije is having his best season yet, and his play could lead to some postseason accolades.
