CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina placed three players on the first-team All-ACC team, which was announced earlier today. Tyler Zeller was a unanimous choice for the first team, and teammates John Henson and Harrison Barnes joined Zeller.
It represented only the second time in ACC history that a team had three first-team all-ACC players. The only other time it happened came in 2002, when Duke had three first-teamers.
As rare as it is for a team to place three players on the first team, it’s even rarer that one team have four of the top six vote getters for the all-ACC teams. But there sophomore point guard Kendall Marshall was – with the most voting points of any player on the all-ACC second team.
