All-ACC Teams Announced; UPDATED: Coaches' Teams Added

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The honors keep rolling in for Marcus Paige. The sophomore guard has been named first team All-ACC by a vote of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Paige received 69 first team votes out of a possible 77 cast and was the third highest vote getter behind NC State's T.J. Warren and Duke's Jabari Parker who led the voting with 231 points each. Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Clemson's K.J. McDaniels rounded out the first team.

Paige was also named the ACC's Most Improved Player in the award's first year of existence. Paige received 27 votes, 12 ahead of second place T.J. Warren(15) and Miami's Rion Brown(14).

James Michael McAdoo received second team honors for a second straight season. McAdoo actually received two first team votes and beat Boston College's Oliver Hanlan out for the last spot on the second team. Duke's Rodney Hood, Virginia Malcolm Brogdon, Pitt's Lamar Patterson and Syracuse's Tyler Ennis were also named to the team.

Here is the full list via the ACC.

J.P. Tokoto was named to the ACC All-Defensive team. Tokoto received 18 votes and was joined by McDaniels, Georgia Tech's Daniel Miller, Virginia's Akil Mitchell and Syracuse's Tyler Ennis.

Brice Johnson finished third in the voting for the Sixth Man Award with 13 votes behind winner Virginia's Justin Anderson and Florida State's Ian Miller.

UPDATE: The ACC coaches have released their All-ACC, All-Freshmen and All-Defensive teams.

Paige was named to the first team but was not unanimous. Paige also received the Most Improved Player award from the coaches to go along with the media honor. McAdoo received third team honors from the league coaches.

Meeks was named to the All-Freshmen team and J.P. Tokoto was selected for the All-Defensive team.

It should be noted that not only was Paige left off the first team on two ballots but NC State's T.J. Warren was excluded by one league coach on the first team. Who says these guys don't hold grudges?
