Parker, Hood earn All-ACC honors

Freshman Jabari Parker and redshirt sophomore Rodney Hood were Duke's two representatives on this year's All-ACC teams.

After averaging 19.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per game in his rookie season, Parker earned first-team honors from both the ACC's media and the coaches. The Chicago native was the leading vote-getter among the coaches and was one of two unanimous selections alongside N.C. State's T.J. Warren.

Parker was also a unanimous choice for both All-ACC freshman teams, joining Syracuse's Tyler Ennis as the lone unanimous choices.

Hood earned second-team honors from both the media and coaches, receiving four first-team votes in the media voting. The Meridian, Miss., native averaged 16.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in his first season as a Blue Devil and also served as a team captain.

Parker was joined by Warren, North Carolina's Marcus Paige, Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Virginia's Malcolm Brogdon on the coaches' first team. Clemson's K.J. McDaniels replaced Brogdon on the first team picked by the media.

In addition to All-ACC recognition, Parker was also named a first-team All-American by Sporting News, becoming the first Duke freshman ever to receive that honor.
