It is possible some vote splitting led to Barnes and Marshall being right on the cut line between first and second team. It is curious that a player with 9.6 apg and close the season with a pair of impressive performances couldn't break through to the top group. Then again someone pointed out NCSU's Chris Corchiani did that and averaged 16 ppg but never made All-ACC first team. The voting is just weird like that sometimes. In the end it may work out fine especially if Marshall views missing the first team the same way he viewed someone calling him overrated or one dimensional.

It is curious Mike Scott was not unanimous on the first team(which is stupid) and could make for an interesting situation tomorrow if Mike Scott wins ACC Player of the Year ahead of the only unanimous choice on the All-ACC first team.
