    The First Team All-ACC was recently announced, with North Carolina’s Brice Johnson, North Carolina State’s Cat Barber, Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon, Duke’s Grayson Allen, and Clemson’s Jaron Blossomgame taking home this year’s honors. It’s a very well-deserved accomplishment for all five athletes.

    But the thing that makes the ACC so special is that this award could have rightfully gone to a myriad of other players. What about Notre Dame’s Demetrius Jackson? Or Michael Gbinije of Syracuse? And let’s not forget Louisville’s Damion Lee.

    The ACC is such a deep, talented collection of teams that just about anyone could win the conference tournament. North Carolina has notched the top seed in the tournament as well as the regular season title, but with talent stacked from top to bottom in the conference, it’s anyone’s game at this point, regardless of seeding.

    With that in mind, here’s how the ACC tournament has shaped up.*
