Seven Triangle players voted to All-ACC Coaches' team

Posted March 18, 2013

— Duke University's Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry were voted to the first-team of the inaugural Coaches All-ACC Basketball team, which was announced by the league Monday. 

Plumlee and Curry were joined on the first team by Virginia's Joe Harris, Miami's Shane Larkin and Virginia Tech's Erick Green. 

Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own players, and first-team selections were worth three points with second-team picks worth two points and third-teamers receiving one point.

Plumlee currently ranks second among ACC players in per-game scoring (17.2), rebounding (10.2) and field goal percentage (59.2 percent). Plumlee was recently named the ACC Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year and also ranks among the league’s top five in blocked shots and minutes played.

Curry heads into the NCAA Tournament ranked just behind Plumlee in scoring (17.0). The 6-foot-2 senior guard from Charlotte ranks fourth in the ACC in 3-point shooting accuracy (43.0 percent) and second in 3-point shots made (83). His 81.7 free-throw shooting percentage (103-of-126) is third among ACC players.

Four other local players – UNC's Reggie Bullock and James Michael McAdoo and North Carolina State University's Richard Howell and Lorenzo Brown – were voted to the second team. They were joined by Miami's Kenny Kadji.

Ties in the voting resulted in a six-member third team, led by N.C. State’s C.J. Leslie (14.9 ppg, 7.4 rpg) and Florida State’s Michael Snaer (14.5 ppg, 81.3 free-throw percentage). Boston College's Ryan Anderson, Miami's Durand Scott, Wake Forest's C.J. Harris and Virginia's Akil Mitchell rounded out the third team. 

ACC rookie of the year Olivier Hanlan of Boston College was a unanimous selection to the all-freshman team.

Hanlan, who set an ACC tournament record for freshmen with 41 points in the first round against Georgia Tech, was joined by Duke's Rasheed Sulaimon, North Carolina State's T.J. Warren, Wake Forest's Devin Thomas, North Carolina's Marcus Paige and Georgia Tech's Robert Carter Jr.

ACC defensive player of the year Durand Scott was one of three Miami players on the coaches' all-defense team. Teammates Larkin and Julian Gamble were joined by Virginia's Jontel Evans, Florida State's Michael Snaer and Plumlee.

    ^Wood is too one-dimensional, and disappears in games too much to be considered....its very telling that he has not been mentioned for ANY post-season accolades...for a guy that shoots 92% from the stripe, its interesting that he is not even listed in the statistics for the acc or ncaa...he would lead the acc in free throw%, and be 3rd in the nation...however, he doesnt have enough attempts to qualify, despite being 8th in minutes played in the do you average 33 minutes a game for the year, and not have enough ft attempts to qualify for the rankings????...passive game is why...he has been doing well lately, which just shows he could have been doing it all along

  • HeelHater Mar 19, 2013

    How can Scott Wood not show up on any of this?

  • StunGunn Mar 19, 2013

    Congrats to all. Howell on second team, questionable, but who would you take off the first team - Harris of UVA? Maybe should have had a tie on first team as well and put Howell there, the guy was a beast all season.

    Make no mistake about it...I'm a Tarheel fan through and through.But, I have to hand it to Shane Larkin. Larkin turned in a performance yesterday reminiscent of Randolph Childress's undressing of my Tarheels during the ACC tournament of his (Childress) senior year when he scored 100+ points in just three games. Well done Shane Larkin...maybe you should enter the NBA draft and get paid to play.Us Tarheel fans are hoping you bolt for the NBA...Good Luck Shane

    Howell not on 1st team - Green and Larkin on 2nd team on 2 ballots makes this laughable

  • laytonjlje Mar 18, 2013

    WOW, the all time leader in 3's at ncsu doesn't get 8 votes?

  • Brigand Mar 18, 2013

    The fact that Bullock, McAdoo, and Zo Brown got more votes than Howell is laughable!...McAdoo did not come close to Howells productivity....Howell made first team All ACC by media but is the last place vote getter for second team by coaches. That is a joke. The guy was the key to many wins...easily a second teamer if not first.

  • ncsportsguy365 Mar 18, 2013

    Bullock and McAdoo had one of their worst years ever.

  • kmorsreturn Mar 18, 2013

    Post here if you your team is represented on the 1st teamm All ACC Coaches team...... that was fun. :)

  • VT1994Hokie Mar 18, 2013

    The teams sound reasonable since coaches couldn't vote for their own players. Larkin maybe should have been at the top in votes received.
