In a down year for the Deacs, there are obviously not a lot of things to get excited about, but let's give it up for Travis McKie. The freshman from Richmond, VA gave it his all every single game and has been rewarded with a spot on the ACC All-Freshman Team.
Travis got 74 out of the 75 votes, and I'm going to jump to conclusions and assume the person that didn't vote for him was a UNC writer who wanted Barnes to be the only unanimous freshman on the team. Obviously I can't back this up, but it is either this, or the person did not watch a lot of basketball throughout the course of the year.

+ unanimous selection for applicable team
- First time in history that the team finishing first in the ACC has not had any players on the All-ACC First Team.
- Nolan Smith, Harrison Barnes, and John Henson were the only unanimous players selected to their respective teams.
- I already talked about the absurdity of McKie not being unanimous, so I won't harp on that too much.'
- With the ACC really down this year it is hard to have a lot of umbrage with any of the selections.
