Duke University senior defender Sebastien Ibeagha earned his second consecutive All-ACC first team selection to highlight the Blue Devils’ four selections to the 2013 All-Atlantic Coast Conference men’s soccer teams. Ibeagha is a three-time All-ACC selection.

Junior Sean Davis picked up second tem recognition, while sophomore Zach Mathers and freshman Brody Huitema both landed on the third team. Huitema also garnered All-Freshman Team accolades.

A two-year team captain, Ibeagha is one of two defenders to earn first team recognition. The two-year captain has been Duke’s defensive anchor at center back throughout his career and helped the Blue Devils to a 0.93 goals against average and eight shutouts this season. The Missouri City, Texas native also contributed a pair of goals in 2013 to bring his career total to eight. A two-time All-ACC first team selection and a second team honoree in 2011, Ibeagha has started all 70 games of his career, amassed eight goals and three assists for 19 points and helped Duke to 21 shutouts.

Davis, Duke’s leader in the midfield, earns his second All-ACC award after being voted to the second team in 2012. The motor to Duke’s offense, Davis had an outstanding season with a career-high six goals and three assists for 15 points. During the Blue Devils’ eight-game unbeaten streak, the Holmdel, N.J., native paced Duke with four goals. He played all but 17 minutes in 2013 and has started all but two games in his career. Overall in Davis’ three seasons, he owns 45 starts, seven goals and seven assists for 21 points.

Duke’s utility man, Mathers has played all over the field for the Blue Devils in 2013. He started the year in an attacking role and notched a pair of goals in the first two games. Midway through the season, the Keller, Texas native moved back into a center back role with Ibeagha. Following Mathers’ move to the back, Duke allowed just nine goals in 11 games and six shutouts after allowing nine scores in the opening seven contests of the season. In addition to his defensive prowess, Mathers also contributed three assists in Duke’s eight-game unbeaten streak to finish the regular season. For his career, he has started all 36 games and tallied four goals and nine assists for 17 points.

Huitema, Duke’s offensive leader, was one of three freshmen voted to the three All-ACC teams. The rookie striker led all Duke scorers with six goals and four assists for 16 points. He ranked second among all rookies in the ACC in goals and points. A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, he tallied a career-high two goals in the Blue Devils’ come-from-behind win over Davidson and posted a goal and three assists during Duke’s eight-game unbeaten streak.

Duke sports an 8-5-6 overall record after finishing the regular season on an eight-game unbeaten streak. The Blue Devils most recently fell to top-ranked Notre Dame in a narrow 1-0 contest in the ACC Quarterfinals. Duke will await its fate for the NCAA Tournament Monday, Nov. 18 at 12 p.m. The selection show will be broadcast online at NCAA.com.
