GREENSBORO, N.C. – Wake Forest guard Bryant Crawford was named to the Coaches’ All-ACC Freshman Team, the league announced Monday. It is the second All-ACC freshman team accolade for Crawford, who received the same honor from the league’s media on Sunday.

Crawford led ACC freshmen in assists (127) and steals (46) this season, while finishing fourth among rookies in scoring (13.6 ppg). He became just the eighth ACC freshman since 2000 to record 350 points, 100 assists and 40 steals in a season. Crawford joins Ben Simmons of LSU as the only freshmen in the nation to average 13.5 points and 4.4 assists per game this season.

Crawford was named ACC Rookie of the Week on Feb. 22 after posting 20 points, six rebounds, six assists and five steals at Pitt, becoming the first Demon Deacon to have a 20-5-5-5 game since Chris Paul in 2005. During conference play, he led the league with 31 steals, the most by a Deacon since Paul in 2005.

Crawford is the 13th Demon Deacon to be named to the All-ACC Freshman Team since the award debuted in 1992-93.

Senior forward Devin Thomas earned honorable mention All-ACC accolades from the coaches, just as he did from the media. He is one of three ACC players averaging a double-double this season after leading the Deacons in scoring (15.7 ppg) and rebounding (10.1 rpg) this season. Thomas is the ACC active leader in career rebounds (1,048) and double-doubles (34).

Wake Forest begins play in the 2016 ACC Tournament on Tuesday at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. The Demon Deacons play NC State in the first game of the tournament at noon, a contest televised by ESPN2 and the ACC Network.
