Boston College
After taking home ACC Rookie of the Year in 2013, Olivier Hanlan made his debut on the ACC All-Conference ballot this year. Hanlan was named to the All-ACC Third Team. Eagles Hockey remained second in the national rankings, and the women's team fell to fifth nationally. 

K.J. McDaniels was named first team All-ACC in addition to being put on the All-ACC Defensive Team. McDaniels averaged 17.1 points and 7.2 points per game. The football team has a sense of urgency in their spring practices and position battles are heating up. 

Freshman sensation Jabari Parker was named first team All-ACC, as well as first team All-American. Redshirt sophomore Rodney Hood was also named to the All-ACC second team. 

Florida State
Ian Miller and Okaro White both took home ACC honors. Miller was named the ACC's 6th Man of the Year, and White was named to the All-Defensive Team. The Seminoles are a lock to win at least 10 more games in their 2014 campaign.  

Georgia Tech
Senior Daniel Miller was named to the ACC's third team All-Conference, as well as the All-Defensive Team. After sweeping Bowling Green last week, the Jackets baseball team will look to continue its win streak. 

Guard Dez Wells was named to the ACC's All-Conference third team. The Terps will face Florida State in Greensboro on Thursday and are heading in hot. The No.2-ranked women's lacrosse team escaped the Carrier Dome with a 12-10 win over No. 3-ranked Syracuse. 

Senior captain Rion Brown was named third team All-ACC. Offensive lineman Hunter Knighton was released from the hospital after being sent there after an off-season workout late last month. 

North Carolina
Sophomore guard Marcus Paige was named to the first team All-ACC, and James Michael McAdoo was named to the second team. After 4 seasons as head coach at Appalachian State, ex-Tar Heel Jason Capel has been fired. 

North Carolina State
T.J. Warren recieved 41 of 42 possible votes and received first team All-ACC honors. Warren led the conference in scoring and field goal percentage, averaging 24.8 points per game, but was not a unanimous selection.

Notre Dame
Senior guard Eric Atkins was named to the All-ACC third team. The ACC Tournament will kick off Wednesday with the Irish facing Wake Forest. 

The Panthers hope that their recent win over Clemson will spring them into some momentum heading into their first-ever ACC Tournament. Senior Lamar Patterson was named to the All-ACC second team. 

The Orange hope to forget about their dismal ending to an otherwise terrific season as they head into postseason play. Senior C.J. Fair was named to the All-ACC first team, and Tyler Ennis was named to the All-Freshman team. 

Malcolm Brogdon was named to the All-ACC first team by the coaches, and second team by the media. There is a lot of pressure on the Cavs for the postseason, as history has not been particularly kind to the Hoos. 

Virginia Tech
Head Coach Frank Beamer will be a co-grand marshall for the NASCAR Food City 500 on Sunday. There was one lone bright spot in the Hokies basketball season. 4 of the 7 available scholarship players were named to the ACC's All-Academic Team. 

Wake Forest
Coach Jeff Bzdelik wasn't too concerned with sophomore center Devin Thomas missing paractice time Momday right before the ACC Tournament.
