The All-ACC teams were released today, and were, for the most part, sensible. Unsurprisingly, Greivis Vasquez was a unanimous selection, as were Jon Scheyer and Malcolm Delaney. He's the first Terp to be on the All-ACC first team since Steve Blake did it in his senior season.
Sadly, Eric Hayes, Landon Milbourne, and Sean Mosley all missed the third team - Mosley and Milbourne both had ill-timed slumps which probably killed their chances, and Hayes was a long-shot all along. I do think that if Milbourne hadn't had the late season slow-down that he would've made it, and certainly would've deserved it over, say, Alabi or Hudson.
Another non-surprise came on the ACC All-Rookie team; Derrick Favors led the way in votes, but Maryland forward Jordan Williams was right on his tail, just one vote away. I just want to know who thought that Williams wasn't one of the five best freshmen in the ACC.
Other than that, not a lot was qualm-worthy; Kyle Singler was the last on the first team, and I honestly think he deserved to be ahead of Booker. That's a strange case of a Duke player getting fewer votes than they deserve. Ishmael Smith doesn't seem like a second-team player in my mind, but I can't really complain when the next two options are Gani Lawal and Dorenzo Hudson.
Congrats go out to both Terps. Coach of the Year, Player of the Year, and Rookie of the Year are all announced tomorrow.
