    Marcus Paige, North Carolina

    * unanimous selection

N.C. State’s T.J. Warren and Duke’s Jabari Parker led the way in all-ACC voting by both the media and the coaches, setting up an interesting reveal when Player of the Year is announced Tuesday at 1 p.m.

Parker, a freshman, was the only player to be a unanimous first-team selection by both the 77 voting members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA) and the 14 coaches eligible to vote for him (coaches can’t vote for their own players).

Parker, who leads Duke with 19.2 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting 48.7 percent from the field, was also a unanimous pick for the all-freshman team, too. He is just the eighth freshman (and second from Duke) to earn first-team all-ACC honors.

Warren, a sophomore, was a unanimous selection by the media and was a first-teamer on 13 of the 14 coaches’ ballots. He leads the conference in scoring (24.8 points per game) and field goal percentage (53.2 percent).

North Carolina point guard Marcus Paige joined Parker and Warren on both first teams and was named the ACC’s most improved player as well after increasing his average scoring from last year by 8.7 points per game, his field goal percentage from .356 to .432 and his 3-point percentage from .344 to .391.

UNC’s James Michael McAdoo was a third-team selection, J.P. Tokoto was named to the all-defensive team and Kennedy Meeks was a member of the all-freshmen team as well.

Duke redshirt sophomore Rodney Hood was a second-team selection, becoming the first Duke transfer to earn all-league recognition in his first season.
