According to the United States Basketball Writers Association, C.J. Fair is one of the top 10 players in college hoops this year.
And the National Association of Basketball Coaches thinks highly of him as well. (Spolier alert: They also like Tyler Ennis a fair bit as well)
Unfortunately for the Cuse, they'll definitely be without Fair and they'll likely be without Ennis when they serve as a host school for the 2014 2K Sports Classic in November.
The Orange may miss Madison Square Garden when they begin play in their first ever ACC Tournament Friday, but at least some of the guys will get back to the Garden for a different tournament next season.
