Hansbrough is the preseason frontrunner for every national player-of-the-year award, and for good reason: He's capable of averaging 20-and-10 as a junior. Thompson, who will assume the power-forward spot vacated by Brandan Wright, played only 12.4 minutes per game as a freshman, but was highly productive and should blossom into one of the ACC's better low-post players.
