Duke’s Jon Scheyer and Kyle Singler earned first-team All-ACC honors on Monday. But for the first time since the ACC was formed in 1954, North Carolina (16-15, 5-11 ACC) did not have a player named to the first-, second- or third teams.
Tar Heel junior Ed Davis, who broke his left wrist halfway through the conference season, was the closest – he earned 17 points, placing him 18th among the 29 players who got votes from the ACC media. Senior Deon Thompson, the team’s leading scorer, earned six points total.
The league had first- and second-team All-ACC selections from 1954-89 and added a third team beginning in 1990. The closest UNC previously had come to not making the cut was in 2002, when it finished 8-20 and Jason Capel was the last player chosen on the third team. In 2003, freshman Raymond Felton was the second-to-last player chosen on the third team.
UNC and Miami were the only two teams this season not to have a player selected for the All-ACC team.
Locally, Wake's Al-Farouq Aminu, Duke's Nolan Smith, N.C. State's Tracy Smith and Wake's Ish Smith were all second-team selections.
