ACC Fans on Twitter choose the End of the Season ACC Basketball Awards.

By now I’m sure you’ve seen who the ACC Media picked for the ACC post-season awards. That’s great, but I think you’ll find some pretty knowledgeable ACC fans that may have a different opinion. @HokieGuru has put together 2 of his patented panel discussions with many of our ACC Friends on twitter. Here’s the first where they choose the ACC post-season awards below, Enjoy!

Greetings from all of us at All Sports Discussion.  In Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) country, men’s basketball season is one of our favorite times of the year.  Our panelists will be discussing four topics.  First, our panelists will predict the players that will obtain first-team all-ACC honors.  Second, the panelists will provide their ACC defensive player of the year.  Third, the panelists will give us their ACC overall player of the year.  And, fourth, they will give us the ACC coach of the year.    Let’s get this panel started!!!

Who is your ACC Defensive Player of the Year?

@younglefhander John Henson

@DukeBlogMKline John Henson (all this carolina love is painful by the way)

@WillsWorldMN  John Henson

@Category6UM John Henson

@KilroyFSU As much as I’d love to go with Michael Snaer, who is probably the better perimeter defender, John Henson has more tools on defense.

@ztevans John Henson. He probably gets a little more love than he deserves, but all praise directed his way defensively is warranted.

@MartinRickman John Henson

@CUBOSCO John Henson

@BCHysteria John Henson

@hokie8807 John Henson

@NCStateFootball Henson

@TerrapinNation John Henson

Who is your ACC Overall Player of the Year?

@younglefhander Mike Scott

@DukeBlogMKline Tyler Zeller

@WillsWorldMN Mike Scott

@Category6UM Mike Scott

@KilroyFSU Mike Scott, and it’s not even close.

@ztevans Mike Scott

@MartinRickman Mike Scott

@CUBOSCO Mike Scott

@BCHysteria Mike Scott

@hokie8807 Mike Scott

@NCStateFootball Mike Scott, You can argue Zeller isn’t even the clear MVP of his team.

@TerrapinNation Tyler Zeller

Who is your ACC Coach of the Year?

@younglefhander Mike Krzyzewski narrowly edges Leonard Hamilton.

@DukeBlogMKline Mike Krzyzewski

@WillsWorldMN Tony Bennett. Injuries and defections have hurt the team, but he still has won.

@Category6UM Jim Larranaga

@KilroyFSU For his huge midseason adjustments, when the team was coming off the rails, I have to be a homer and go with Leonard Hamilton. That FSU was 2-1 against UNC and Duke despite much less talent speaks volumes.

@ztevans Mike Krzyzewski. Also, #AllWesMillerEverything.

@MartinRickman Brad Brownell

@CUBOSCO Brad Brownell

@BCHysteria Tony Bennett

@hokie8807 Tony Bennett

@NCStateFootball Leonard Hamilton, but I can make a good case for Gottfried.

@TerrapinNation Tony Bennett

We thank our panelists for their time – and stay tuned for other panels at All Sports Discussion.
