TJ Warren ACC Player of the Year

WRAL:

Media voters selected North Carolina State University sophomore forward T.J. Warren as the ACC’s Player of the Year, the league announced Tuesday.

Warren, a Durham native, averaged 24.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game for the Wolfpack, who finished the 2013-14 regular season 9-9 in league play and 19-12 overall. He was named player of the year by 48 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

Duke freshman Jabari Parker, who was named the ACC Freshman of the Year, finished second in player of the year voting with 25 votes.

TheACC.com:

NC State’s Warren leads the ACC in scoring at 24.8 points per game and in field goal percentage at .532. The 6-foot-8 forward closed the regular season with back-to-back scoring games of 41 and 42 points in wins over Pitt and Boston College. Warren has scored at least 20 points in 26 of the 30 games in which he played, and has scored more than 30 points on nine occasions.

Warren is on pace to join Clemson’s Horace Grant (1987) and Wake Forest’s Tim Duncan (1997) as only the third player in ACC history to lead the conference in both scoring and field goal percentage. He ranks third nationally in scoring, and his 9.8 field goals made per game ranks first.

Warren also ranks eighth among ACC rebounders with 7.1 per game – including an ACC-high 3.17 offensive rebounds per game – and is eighth in minutes played at 34.9 per game.

This marks the eighth time that an NC State student-athlete has been honored as the ACC Basketball Player of the Year. Warren joins Ronnie Shavlik (1956), Lou Pucillo (1959), three-time winner David Thompson (1973-75), Rodney Monroe (1991) and Julius Hodge (2004).

    Thats a relief, as great as TJ is, I was positive Parker would get the Award.

    TJ is the POY by a country mile over Parker who was himself far better than Paige despite David Glenn’s best efforts to tell us idiots otherwise (today’s format is anything other than ACCPOY, btw).

    TJ, you have been an absolute pleasure to watch! You are a SUPERSTAR! Congratulations young man!

    FYI…I merged the two “TJ wins POY” threads into this one. (It looks like everything worked.)

    Congrats to TJ.

    Dunno who this TJ is, but couldn’t be happier for Buckets. Huzzah!

    I would like to know what freaking lunatic voted JAMIE DIXON for COY.

    Congratulations TJ Warren! If he can add the Everett Case Award this weekend I will be very pleased.

    Congrats to TJ. He’s made every game this season worth watching, and the last couple weeks have been something really special. Couldn’t be happier for him. Now if we could just convince him to come back and defend it…

    Of course the ESPN headline reads “Warren edges Parker for ACC Player of Year”, because nearly doubling the 2nd place guy’s votes is apparently a narrow margin.

    Also, 4 people voted for Jabari Parker for DPoY, which is absurd.

    Congratulations TJ. Although some on this board may disagree, for my money you are the best since DT. You would have had to have been around then to understand just how monumental that compliment is. Keep up the great work.

    Dukeies say that Swoff would NOT allow a Duke Freshman to get the POY and the Frosh of the year award. Based on Wiki, there has NOT been a Frosh that has received the award.

    Congrats to TJ (Buckets) Warren. We are proud of you as well as your dad.

    GO STATE….now use this as a motivation to win the next three games and lets go dancing….

    This great news. Well-deserved.

    That said, the media giving props to Buckets combined with the recent success of FSU, the U, and UVa does tend to undermine the conspiracy theory arguments, doesn’t it?

    Also undermines the Gottfied haters’ arguments. Gottfried had a big role to play in working TJW up into a POY. Gott was also the decisive factor in getting a team decimated by graduation and transfers to .500 in league play.

    Folks, we have been our own worst enemies for a long time. Lotta bad hires over the years. But we have a good coach in a league with more parity than ever. I think we’re going in the right direction.

    Or, you can look at it like we had the ACC POY, by a landslide, and only went .500. It cuts both ways.

    Yes, all of it does undermine the “theories”.

    Nice job. Now to tie Thompson’s record by getting POY three years in a row. Hey, an alumni/fan can dream, right?
