The ACC officially got shorter on talent Thursday night, courtesy of the NBA draft.
Four of the league’s top forwards — Georgia Tech’s Derrick Favors (No. 3, by the New Jersey Nets), Wake Forest’s Al-Farouq Aminu (No. 8, Los Angeles Clippers), North Carolina’s Ed Davis (No. 13, Toronto Raptors) and Clemson's Trevor Booker (No. 23, traded from Minnesota to Washington) — were all chosen in the first round at Madison Square Garden.
In addition, 6-feet-6 Maryland guard Greivis Vasquez was chosen 28th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies -- striding out of the stands to hug commissioner David Stern.
