NBA projection:
Acy has been projected as a second-round pick, and he's got a chance to impress an NBA team with his combination of athleticism, willingness to perform blue-collar tasks and character. He's also a competitor with a motor that is stuck on high gear.

2011-12 Season:
Acy was one of Baylor's glue guys as it advanced to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight for the second time in three years. Acy lead the Bears in field-goal percentage, blocked shots and offensive rebounds and was a leader on and off the floor.

Key statistics:
12.0 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 1.0 apg, 1.9 tpg, 0.9 spg, 1.8 bpg, 29.7 mpg, .577 FG, .600 3PT, .782 FT

Cool statistic:
Nearly half (48.5 percent) of Acy's career field goals were dunks (244 of 503).

Reminds me of:
Gerald Wallace

What Insiders Say:
Baylor coach Scott Drew
"For those who never saw Quincy Acy as a freshman, if he didn't dunk, there was no way he could score. And that's five on zero, one on zero. I mean, the old Mikan drill. He couldn't get two in a row. And the fact he's worked this hard to develop his game, it's a real credit and testament to him. I know he's got the beard and everything, but he's a year younger. He could have stayed in high school another year. And just to see him mature -- that's why you get into coaching, to see guys come on -- he was a little kid, and now he left a man."

What Outsiders Say:
Xavier coach Chris Mack
"He's a cage rattler. We knew that. He's just ... I want to see his birth certificate. He's that kid, when you're coaching AAU and you look over, and he just looks so much bigger and stronger than everybody. We knew about him a couple of years ago. He was terrific in Orlando when we lost to Baylor. More of the same today. I can take some of the offensive rebound put-backs, but when he starts facing up and hitting jump shots, it's not what the doctor ordered. It's not fair."
