Two Virginia Tech basketball players were honored by the ACC on Monday afternoon.
Finishing with 70 points in the voting, Erick Green was the last player to be named Second Team All-ACC on Monday, narrowing beating out Duke’s Seth Curry (65 points). Other members of the second team are Kendall Marshall (UNC), Terrell Stoglin (131), Michael Snaer (FSU) and C.J. Leslie (NC State.).
Stoglin is the first ACC player since Clemson’s Terrell McIntyre in 1999 to lead the league in scoring, yet not make First Team All-ACC.
Green was Virginia Tech’s leading scoring in 2011-12, averaging 15.3 points per game. He also pulled down 3.2 rebounds per game while leading the team in assists (82) and steals (40).
Dorian Finney-Smith was named to the ACC’s All-Freshman team after averaging 6.3 points and 6.8 rebounds. He received 53 out of a possible 61 votes. Austin Rivers (Duke) and Ryan Anderson (Boston College) were unanimous selections, while Shane Larkin (Miami) and Nick Faust (Maryland) were also chosen.
Finney-Smith is the third Tech player to make the All-Freshman team, joining Deron Washington in 2006 and Jeff Allen in 2008.
