The media and coaches votes fell in line when it came to outstanding basketball performances in the Atlantic Coast Conference for the 2013-14 season.

Both groups of selectors chose North Carolina State University sophomore forward T.J. Warren as the ACC's Player of the Year and Duke freshman Jabari Parker the ACC Freshman of the Year.

Warren, a Durham native, averaged 24.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game for the Wolfpack, who finished the 2013-14 regular season 9-9 in league play and 19-12 overall. He was named player of the year by 48 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Of the 113 eligible voters, 77 cast a ballot.

Warren leads the ACC in scoring and in field goal percentage at .532. The 6-foot-8 forward closed the regular season with back-to-back scoring games of 41 and 42 points in wins over Pittsburgh and Boston College, respectively. Warren has scored at least 20 points in 26 of the 30 games in which he played, and has scored more than 30 points on nine occasions.

Warren is on pace to join Clemson’s Horace Grant (1987) and Wake Forest’s Tim Duncan (1997) as only the third player in ACC history to lead the conference in both scoring and field goal percentage. He ranks third nationally in scoring, and his 9.8 field goals made per game ranks first.

Warren also ranks eighth among ACC rebounders with 7.1 per game – including an ACC-high 3.17 offensive rebounds per game – and is eighth in minutes played at 34.9 per game.

This marks the eighth time that an NC State student-athlete has been honored as the ACC Basketball Player of the Year. Warren joins Ronnie Shavlik (1956), Lou Pucillo (1959), three-time winner David Thompson (1973-75), Rodney Monroe (1991) and Julius Hodge (2004).

Duke’s Parker, who was named the ACC Rookie of the Week a record-tying 10 times during the regular season, ranks second in the ACC in scoring at 19.2 points per game and leads in rebounding at 9.0 per contest. The Chicago native leads the ACC with 14 double-doubles on the season and will take a 15-game double-figure scoring streak into this week’s ACC Tournament.

Parker received 72 of a possible 77 votes for Freshman of the Year, with fellow Wooden Award finalist Tyler Ennis receiving four. Parker becomes the seventh Duke Freshman of the Year honoree, joining Jim Spanarkel (1976), Mike Gminski (1977), Gene Banks (1978), Chris Duhon (2001), Kyle Singler (2008) and Austin Rivers (2012).

Virginia head coach Tony Bennett received Coach of the Year honors, and Clemson junior K.J. McDaniels was the Defensive Player of the Year.

    Not really sure what claim I am supposed to respond to? I am a Duke lifer and can assure you I have more ties to Duke basketball than most Duke fans on this forum. Doesn't matter what I say on this forum, I have no way to prove anything to you or anyone else. I also don't think I need to spend my day on here explaining my connection to Duke University.

    Actually, I am very happy for State fans, its gives you something to be happy about. It allows you to take your attention off of blaming refs, an average season up to this point and your recent failures in football. As a Duke fan I have nothing to be agitated about. Better than expected football season, another trip to the NCAA tourney and landing two of the top three recruits for next year keeps me smiling. It is always a good day to be a Duke fan, and I am happy that you finally have a day you can be happy to be a State fan.....good feeling isn't it. Now if you guys could get the rest of your team to do something and put it all together maybe you can feel like I do everyday. Don't understand the twitter hash tag thingy you do at the end but here is one for you,

    Congrats to Warren - glad they got this one right.

  • amysgen Mar 11, 10:33 p.m.

    I am a Wahoo, and I completely disagree with those who think the POY should be the best player from the best team. UVA won the conference because of their defense and teamwork, and there isn't a player who should be singled out for POY.

    TJ Warren is an excellent choice. He had a target on his back every game as the one and only consistent threat for his team, yet he was able to put up amazing numbers even with all of that attention.

    One of the most amazing things UVA did this season was hold TJ to 4 points. Still shaking my head in disbelief that they did.
