The ACC released their postseason All-Conference honors Sunday, and Virginia Tech’s Seth Allen was named ACC Sixth Man of the Year by the league. The voting was done by a panel comprised of all 15 head coaches and selected members of the media.
Allen dominated the voting, earning 43 points, with no other player scoring more than 4.

Allen has started just 5 of the Hokies’ 29 games this season and averaged 13.1 points per game in 28.8 minutes per game. He made multiple game-winning shots this season.
In other awards, no Hokies were voted to the ACC First, Second, and Third teams, but Allen and Zach LeDay earned enough votes to be on the ten-member Honorable Mention All-ACC team. LeDay led the Hokies in scoring (Allen was second) with 15.6 ppg, good enough for 14th in the ACC. LeDay’s 7.1 rebounds per game were 13th in the ACC, and his 53.1% field goal percentage was third in the conference behind only John Collins (Wake Forest, 62.3%) and Kennedy Meeks (UNC, 53.9%).
Virginia Tech and Boston College were the only two teams without a player named among the 15 members of the First, Second, or Third teams.
Buzz Williams was a distant fifth (tied) in Coach of the Year voting, with Georgia Tech’s Josh Pastnor winning the award.
