ACC coaches pick same All-ACC team as the media

ACC player of the year Malcolm Brogdon averages 18.4 points for the Cavaliers.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – The Atlantic Coast Conference’s coaches have selected Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon as their player of the year.

The league’s 15 coaches announced their awards Monday, a day after media members made their selections, and the two groups’ selections largely mirrored each other.

They both also picked Miami’s Jim Larranaga as the coach of the year, Duke’s Brandon Ingram as the freshman of the year, Brogdon as the defensive player of the year and North Carolina’s Isaiah Hicks as the top sixth man.

Clemson’s Jaron Blossomgame and Duke’s Grayson Allen shared the coaches’ award for most improved player.

The coaches and media members picked the same five-man all-ACC first team of Brogdon, Allen, Blossomgame, Brice Johnson of North Carolina and Anthony “Cat” Barber of North Carolina State.
