GREENSBORO, N.C. - Junior guard Olivier Hanlan has been named to the First Team All-ACC by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA), announced today by the Atlantic Coast Conference office.

Hanlan becomes the fifth Boston College player to earn First Team All-ACC accolades and the first since Reggie Jackson in 2011. The other three Eagles to receive the honor include Tyrese Rice (2008), Jared Dudley (2007) and Craig Smith (2006).

Hanlan was dominant in conference play this season as he finished first in the league in scoring (21.9), first in 3-point percentage (.436), third in 3-pointers made (2.83), fifth in free throw percentage (.810), sixth in field goal percentage (.483) and 10th in assists (4.00). He scored 18 or more points in 13 of the 18 games and recorded four or more assists in 12 outings. The Aylmer, Quebec product led the ACC in 30-point games (four) and also led all players in major conferences in scoring average during league play.

Overall, Hanlan led the ACC in scoring (19.4) and ranked eighth in field goal percentage (.463), eighth in 3-point percentage (.361), eighth in 3-pointers made (2.10), and ninth in assists (4.20). He also led the league in minutes played at 37.67 per game. Hanlan ranks 21st in the country in scoring, 12th in field goals made (212) and 10th in minutes.

Hanlan made the first team on just 29 of the 64 total ballots, edging Louisville junior Montrezl Harrell (220 votes, 21 first-team) for the fifth and final spot on the first-team. Joining Hanlan on the first team was Duke freshman Jahlil Okafor, Notre Dame senior Jerian Grant, Syracuse graduate Rakeem Christmas and Virginia junior Malcolm Brodgon.
