Three student-athletes, Duke’s Raphael Hemmeler, NC State’s Austin Powell and Frank, were named to the All-ACC Academic Team for the third time.
The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports.
