The National Association of Basketball Coaches has selected its all-District 2 (ACC) team and the first team does not include Duke's Gerald Henderson.
Named to the first team were Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson (North Carolina), Jeff Teague (Wake Forest), Toney Douglas (Florida State) and Jack McClinton (Miami).
On the second team: Henderson and Kyle Singler (Duke), Tyrese Rice (Boston College), Trevor Booker (Clemson) and A.D. Vassallo (Virginia Tech).
Members of the NABC, which includes almost all of the nation’s college basketball head coaches and assistants, vote on the various all-District teams. Nationally, there are 24 districts.
Named to the all District-3 team was Jonathan Rodriguez of Campbell. Davidson’s Stephen Curry was selected first-team all-District 22. His teammate, Andrew Lovedale, made the second unit.
The official All-ACC team is determined by a vote of Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association members. The voting deadline is Sunday night.
If there’s a discrepancy between the NABC and ACSMA teams, it almost certainly will involve Henderson in some manner. The Duke junior has been one of the ACC’s most productive players during the past several weeks and deserves first-team recognition.
