CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia junior guard Joe Harris (Chelan, Wash.) and junior forward Akil Mitchell (Charlotte, N.C.) were named to the inaugural 2013 Coaches All-Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Team, announced Monday (March 18) by the ACC.
Virginia senior guard Jontel Evans (Hampton, Va.) was named to the All-ACC Defensive Team as selections for the ACC honors were made by a vote of the league's 12 head coaches. Balloting was conducted prior to last weekend's ACC Tournament and was based on regular season performance.
Harris ranks fourth in the league in scoring at 16.9 ppg, including 18.4 ppg in ACC play (second in the league). Harris was the only ACC player to rank in the top 10 in 3-point field goal percentage (5th), free throw percentage (6th) and field goal percentage (8th) during league play. Harris has nine 20-point games this season, including a career-high 36 points vs. Duke on Feb. 28.
Mitchell earned third-team All-ACC honors by averaging 13 ppg and ranking second in the ACC in field goal percentage (55%) and third in rebounding (8.8 rpg) during league play.
Harris was joined on the first team by Mason Plumlee (Duke), Erick Green (Virginia Tech), Shane Larkin (Miami) and Seth Curry (Duke). Harris and Plumlee were unanimous All-ACC first team selections. Reggie Bullock and James Michael McAdoo (North Carolina), Kenny Kadji (Miami), Richard Howell and Lorenzo Brown (NC State) were second-team selections. C.J. Leslie (NC State), Michael Snaer (Florida State), Ryan Anderson (Boston College), Durand Scott (Miami) and C.J. Harris (Wake Forest) joined Mitchell on the third team.
Evans was named to the All-ACC Defensive Team after being the top perimeter defender on a Cavalier squad that allowed a league-low 57.2 points per game during ACC play. Miami's Scott, Larkin and Julian Gamble, Plumlee and Snaer joined Evans on the All-ACC Defensive Team.
