UNC Basketball: Joel Berry and Luke Maye on All-ACC First Team

NCAA Basketball: Miami at North Carolina Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Congratulations are in order for a trio of Tar Heels.

The 2018 ACC honors were announced on Sunday in the lead up to the tournament and both Joel Berry and Luke Maye from UNC were named to the All-ACC First Team. It’s Berry’s second honor as All-ACC, and his first time on the first team. For Maye, this is his first honor, and caps off an improbable season where fans would have been thrilled with even a mention on this team. As what would be expected when Maye joins the first team, he also won Most Improved in the conference.

Theo Pinson couldn’t quite join the top fifteen, but did snag an honorable mention. It’s a recognition of the all-around impact that Pinson had to the team, even if the numbers he put up weren’t enough to get onto one of the teams.

It’s the first time since 2012 that UNC has had more than one player on the first team, an increasingly difficult task to pull off in a fifteen team league (h/t to RL Bynum for that info).

In a shock to no one who saw him play last night, Duke’s Marvin Bagley took down the Player of the Year honor. Luke Maye came in third behind BC’s Jerome Robinson.

Virginia’s Tony Bennett took down the mantle of Coach of the Year after leading his Cavaliers to a 17-1 regular season and outright ACC regular season title.

It should also surprise no one that no Tar Heels made the All-ACC defensive team nor the rookie team. Here are the awards and totals, via the ACC
