My All ACC Conference Teams

Published on November 3, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   3 Comments

College basketball is right around the corner. Games will be starting in a week or so. College basketball might be the only game in town, which will give even more attention to the college game. I can’t wait for this upcoming season.

In the next few days I will be releasing my all conference teams for the power six conferences. Today I release my All ACC teams.

1st Team

F Harrison Barnes, North Carolina (15.7 ppg) 6-8, 210, So. – Was the ACC Freshman of the Year last season. He hit clutch shot after clutch shot last season. He can score both inside and out offensively. Averaged 21 points and 8.3 rebounds in the NCAA tournament.

F Tyler Zeller , North Carolina (15.7 ppg) 7-0, 250, Sr. - One of the best low block scorers in the country especially with his jump hook. Led the ACC in field goal percentage last year (54.7). He also has the knack to get to the free throw line.

F John Henson , North Carolina (11.7 ppg) 6-10, 210, Jr. – Henson was the ACC Defensive Player of the year last season. He also led the ACC in blocks (3.2) and rebounds (10.1). He also averaged a double double which is impressive.

G Malcolm Grant, Miami (14.8 ppg) 6-1, 188, Sr.- He can do it all offensively from making threes to driving to the rim. He made 94 threes last season while shooting .423 from behind the arch.

G Kendall Marshall, North Carolina (6.2 ppg) 6-3,186, So. – He is the reason the Tar Heels made a big second half push. He is the best passing point guard in the country. Marshall averaged 6.2 assists per game last season.

2nd Team

F Travis McKie, Wake Forest (13 ppg) 6-7,205, So. – Was the lone bright spot for the Demon Deacons rough season. He led Wake Forest in both points and rebounds (7.7) last season.

G Austin Rivers, Duke 6-4,200, Fr. – Is the son of Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers. Most services rated Rivers as the best freshman in America. Rivers is a flat out scorer who can score in multiple ways.

G Durand Scott, Miami (13.5 ppg) 6-5,200,Jr. – Scott does a little bit of everything for the Canes. Last season he had 4.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.2 steals. His strength on offense is getting to the basket.

F Mike Scott, Virginia (15.9 ppg) 6-8,242, Sr. – Scott only played 10 games last season thanks to an ankle injury. He averaged a double double in the games he did play in. Scott is the active career leader in points in the ACC.

F Bernard James, Florida State (8.6 ppg) 6-10,240,Sr. – Is an older player that is just learning the game and coming into his own. Averaged 2.4 blocks last season. Will put up even better numbers with more playing time.

3rd team

F Mason Plumlee, Duke (7.2 ppg) 6-10,235, Jr. – Averaged 8.4 rebounds last season; he excels at getting offensive rebounds. On offense he can dunk with the best of them. He needs to work on his all around offensive game to be a complete player.

G Seth Curry,Duke (9 ppg) 6-2,180,Jr. – Curry is a deadly three point shooter. His percentage last year from three was (.435). He will likely shift over to point guard this season for the Blue Devils.

F C.J. Leslie, North Carolina State (11 ppg) 6-8,206, So. – Led the Wolfpack last season in rebounds (7.2) and blocks (1.3). Leslie is super athletic but his character is sometimes in question, if his head is straight he could be a whole lot better.

G Erick Green, Virginia Tech (11.6 ppg) 6-4,185, Jr. – Last season he averaged 2.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.8 steals. Those numbers should go up with Malcolm Delaney gone.

G Terrell Stoglin, Maryland (11.4 ppg) 6-1,185,So. – Stoglin had a very successful freshman season making the All ACC freshman team, and was the Terps 2nd leading scorer. Also averaged 3.3 assists. Expect bigger numbers this season.
