Syracuse Orange guard Buddy Boeheim capped a strong individual season by being named All-ACC first team on Monday morning. This comes two days after Buddy scored 30 points to win the ACC scoring title with 599 points (19.3 per game) to edge out Alondes Williams from Wake Forest.
Williams was selected as ACC Player of the Year and the two were joined on the first team by Armando Bacot of North Carolina, Paolo Banchero from Duke and Kam McGusty of Miami. Steve Forbes of Wake won Coach of the Year honors and Banchero was ROY while Dereon Seabron from NC State was selected Most Improved player.
Buddy becomes the fifth Syracuse player to receive All-ACC first team honors joining C.J. Fair, Rakeem Christmas, Michael Gbinije and Elijah Hughes. He’s also the second Orange player to win the ACC scoring title in the last three seasons joining Hughes.
Syracuse is back in action on Wednesday when they face Florida State at Noon in the ACC Tournament 8/9 game.
