Despite a frustrating end to the regular season for the Boston College Eagles' men's basketball team, there is now a silver lining to the frustrations.
The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Sunday afternoon that Ky Bowman was selected for the All-ACC freshman team. Bowman is the first player from Boston College to be named to the all-freshman team since Olivier Hanlan in 2013.
Bowman leads all ACC freshmen in field goal percentage (.479), three-point percentage (.465) and three-pointers made (47), all in league play.
Bowman also finished, in league play, as the Eagles' leading scorer, with 17.6 points per game. That marker is also good for fifth best amongst freshmen across all major conferences.
The freshmen named to the All-Freshmen team were Bowman, Georgia Tech's Josh Okogie, Duke's Jayson Tatum, Florida State's Jonathan Isaac, and N.C. State's Dennis Smith.
Sophomore Jerome Robinson also received accolades, being named All-Honorable mention.
The Eagles are now onto the ACC Tournament, where they will play the No. 10 seed Wake Forest at 2 P.M Tuesday afternoon at the Barclays Center.
