Congrats to Reggie Jackson and Joe Trapani for earning All-ACC basketball honors on Monday. Jackson earned All-ACC first team honors, receiving 190 of a possible 225 votes. Reggie finished the regular season averaging 18.3 points, 4.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game. Jackson's 18.3 a game was good for third best in the conference behind fellow first team selections Nolan Smith (21.6) and Malcolm Delaney (18.8).
Of the four other All-ACC first team selections, only Maryland's Jordan Williams is an underclassman. If Reggie decides to return for his senior year, I figure he could very well be in line for earning next year's ACC Preseason Player of the Year honors.
I hope in Reggie Jackson's All-ACC first team selection acceptance speech, he gives a shout out to Reggie's Veggies, crediting them for at least some of his success this year.
Trapani earned All-ACC Third team honors with 63 votes. Glad to see Trapani recognized in his senior year after seeing a few Tobacco Road-type ballots that left him off completely. Trapani finished the regular season averaging 14.4 points per game, good for ninth best in conference.
Finally, and something which should come as a shock to no one, BC didn't place any players on either the ACC All-Defensive Team. No ACC All-Freshman selections, either. Sorry Gabe and Danny.
