CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia senior guard London Perrantes (Los Angeles, Calif.) was named to the All-ACC second team and junior forward Isaiah Wilkins (Lilburn, Ga.) was named to the All-ACC defensive team, announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Sunday (March 5).
Perrantes guided UVA to its school-record fifth straight season with 11 or more ACC wins. In 18 league contests, Perrantes ranked fifth in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.0), seventh in 3-point field goal percentage (41.7%), eighth in free throw percentage (85.2%) and 20th in scoring (14.9 ppg). He earned All-ACC honorable mention honors as a sophomore and junior.
Wilkins leads UVA's top-ranked defense which yields 54.9 points per game. Wilkins leads the team in rebounding (6.2 rpg), blocked shots (42) and steals (32) and could become the first Cavalier since Travis Watson in 2002-03 to lead the team in those three categories. In ACC play, Wilkins ranked fifth in offensive rebounding (2.78 rpg), sixth in blocked shots (1.44 bpg) and 12th in rebounding (6.8 rpg).
Justin Jackson (North Carolina), Luke Kennard (Duke), Bonzie Colson (Notre Dame), John Collins (Wake Forest) and Donovan Mitchell were named to the All-ACC first team.
Joining Perrantes on the All-ACC second team were Dwayne Bacon (Florida State), Dennis Smith (NC State), Ben Lammers (Georgia Tech) and Joel Berry II (North Carolina).
Davon Reed (Miami), Xavier Rathan-Mayes (Florida State), Matt Jones (Duke), Lammers and Mitchell joined Wilkins on the All-ACC defensive team.
Jackson was named ACC Player of the Year, while Georgia Tech's Josh Pastner was named ACC Coach of the Year. Smith was named the league's top rookie.
No. 6 seed Virginia (21-9) will play No. 11 seed Georgia Tech (17-14) or No. 14 seed Pitt (15-16) in ACC Tournament second round action on Wednesday, March 8. Tipoff at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., is set for approximately 9 p.m. ET.
