Harris, Plumlee lead coaches' all-ACC team

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – Virginia's Joe Harris and Duke's Mason Plumlee have been unanimously selected to the coaches' all-Atlantic Coast Conference team. The league on Monday announced the all-conference teams selected by a vote of the league's 12 head coaches. Also on the first team were Miami's Shane Larkin, Virginia Tech's Erick Green and Duke's Seth Curry. They were not allowed to vote for their own players, and first-team selections were worth three points with second-team picks worth two points and third-teamers receiving one point.
Harris and Plumlee each received 33 voting points and were the only players to appear on the first-team ballots of the 11 coaches who could vote for them. Plumlee ranked second in the league in both scoring (17.2 points) and rebounding (10.2). Harris averaged 16.9 points and was third in the league by making 43.2 percent of his 3-pointers. Larkin was the MVP of the ACC tournament, and led Miami to its first regular-season and tournament titles. Green led the nation with a 25-point scoring average for the last-place Hokies, and Curry ranked second in the league with an average of 2.3 3-pointers per game. ACC rookie of the year Olivier Hanlan of Boston College was a unanimous selection to the all-freshman team. Hanlan, who set an ACC tournament record for freshmen with 41 points in the first round against Georgia Tech, was joined by Duke's Rasheed Sulaimon, North Carolina State's T.J. Warren, Wake Forest's Devin Thomas, North Carolina's Marcus Paige and Georgia Tech's Robert Carter Jr. ACC defensive player of the year Durand Scott was one of three Miami players on the coaches' all-defense team. Teammates Larkin and Julian Gamble were joined by Virginia's Jontel Evans, Florida State's Michael Snaer and Plumlee.
