GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State’s T.J. Warren and Duke’s Jabari Parker were unanimous selections Monday to the media’s all-Atlantic Coast Conference team.

They were joined by North Carolina’s Marcus Paige, Syracuse’s C.J. Fair and Clemson’s K.J. McDaniels.

That team was announced by the league and chosen by 77 voting members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

Parker was the only unanimous first-team selection announced later Monday by the league’s 15 head coaches, who were not allowed to vote for their own players.

The coaches’ first team also included Warren — who received 41 of a possible 42 voting points — Paige, Fair and Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon.

The media members selected Paige as the league’s most improved player and Virginia’s Justin Anderson as its top sixth-man. The coaches also picked Paige as most improved but chose Florida State’s Ian Miller for the sixth-man award.

Warren is the league’s top scorer with an average of 24.8 points — more than five points ahead of the No. 2 scorer, Parker.

Warren closed the regular season with the first consecutive 40-point performances in the ACC since 1990.

On the writers’ second team are: Brogdon, Pittsburgh’s Lamar Patterson, Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis, Duke’s Rodney Hood and James Michael McAdoo of North Carolina.

The coaches’ second team included Ennis, Patterson, Hood, McDaniels and Virginia’ Joe Harris.

McDaniels led the media members’ all-defensive team along with Georgia Tech’s Daniel Miller, Virginia’s Akil Mitchell, Ennis and North Carolina’s J.P. Tokoto.

The coaches’ defensive team included McDaniels, Daniel Miller, Mitchell, Tokoto and Florida State’s Okaro White.

Parker finished his freshman season with a season-high 30 points in a victory over rival North Carolina. He is attempting to become the first Duke freshman to lead the team in both scoring and rebounds. Parker averages a league-best nine rebounds.

Paige received 27 votes from the media members for the most-improved award to 15 for Warren and 14 for Miami’s Rion Brown. Anderson had 29 votes for the sixth-man award to 17 for Ian Miller.
