Just like that. There was little surprise as Zion Williamson was named the ACC Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year. Even though he’s missed Duke University’s last several games with a sprained knee, Zion’s put together enough of an impressive resumé this season, that there was little doubt that he would get the necessary votes to come away with both awards.
On the season, Williamson has recorded averages of 21.6 ppg, 8.8 rpg, 2.2 spg and 1.8 bpg in 26 games. He got 49 votes for player of the year and 47 votes for rookie of the year. His teammate R.J. Barrett, UNC’s Cam Johnson, Virginia’s Kyle Guy and De’Andre Hunter join Williamson in rounding out the ACC’s first team.
