Pitt star Lamar Patterson, a midseason candidate for ACC player of the year honors, was named second-team by the conference's coaches and media.

Patterson, a 6-foot-5 fifth-year senior swingman who averages 17.6 points and 4.5 assists a game, received 10 first-team votes and 158 points by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association and 31 votes from ACC coaches.

Pitt center Talib Zanna earned honorable mention on both All-ACC teams. The 6-9 fifth-year senior averages 12.5 points and 8.3 rebounds. He received 28 points from ACSMA, (which required at least 10) and the minimum of four votes from the league's coaches.

Duke freshman Jabari Parker, N.C. State sophomore T.J. Warren, Syracuse senior C.J. Fair and North Carolina sophomore Marcus Paige were first-team picks by both. Clemson junior C.J. McDaniels was named first team by ACSMA, while Virginia sophomore Malcolm Brogdon was voted first team by the coaches.

Paige was named Most Improved Player by both ACSMA and the coaches, but Virginia sophomore Justin Anderson won ACSMA's Sixth Man of the Year award, while the coaches selected Florida State's Ian Miller.

Virginia Tech freshman point guard Devin Wilson, a Montour graduate, was named to both All-ACC freshman teams. Wilson ranks third in the conference with 4.8 assists per game, averages 9.2 points.
