Two Virginia Tech players earned All-ACC honors in a voting consisting of ACC head coaches and some members of the media.
Kerry Blackshear, who was dominant in the month of February, was named Second Team All-ACC with a total of 170 points. Nickeil Alexander-Walker was Third Team All-ACC with 72 points. Blackshear also received two votes for the ACC’s Most Improved Player.
Here’s how the voting looked…
Head coach Buzz Williams finished second in the voting for ACC Coach of the Year. UVA’s Tony Bennett won the award with a total of 30 votes. Most of the media was split between four other candidates, which prevented anyone being a serious challenger to Bennett at the top. Here’s how the voting broke down…
Tony Bennett, UVA: 30
Buzz Williams, VT: 12
Roy Williams, UNC: 11
Leonard Hamilton, FSU: 10
Chris Mack, Louisville: 7
All ACC coaches plus 55 media members took part in the voting. A separate AP All-ACC vote will be released on Tuesday.
