Johnson, Hicks Honored by ACC Coaches

New, comments
Mark Dolejs-USA TODAY Sports

The ACC's 15 coaches have voted for the postseason awards and Brice Johnson collects another First Team All-ACC honor. Johnson was again unanimous selection alongside Virginia's Malcolm Brogdon. Johnson was also named to the All-Defensive team tying for the fifth spot with Louisville's Chianu Onuaku with six votes apiece. Johnson's inclusion seems odd though his league leading defensive rebounding rate could be an argument for his inclusion.

Like the media vote, Isaiah Hicks was also named ACC Sixth Man of the Year.

In addition to the ACC accolades, Johnson was named First Team All-America by USA Today. This, however, is not one of the teams that meets the requirements for having an honored jersey in the Dean Smith Center.

Via the ACC, the full awards from the coaches.
