Clemson outperformed the ACC preseason media prediction more than any other team in the league, and it wasn't even close. Clemson was predicted to finished 14th in the league and ended the season eight spots above that to earn the No. 6 seed in next week's ACC tournament. No other team beat its preseason prediction by more than three spots.
