Coaches Name BC’s Olivier Hanlan ACC Rookie Of The Year

BOSTON (CBS) – Boston College Freshman Olivier Hanlan earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors on Tuesday, receiving 10 of 11 possible votes among the conference’s head coaches.

Hanlan also earned Freshman of the Year honors from the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA) last week, and was the only unanimous choice for the ACC All-Freshman Teams voted on by both ACSMA and the coaches.

Hanlan averaged 14.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists during his first year at the Heights, leading all ACC freshmen with 26 double-digit scoring games.

Balloting was conducted prior to the ACC Tournament (before Hanlan dropped 41 points in BC’s win over Georgia Tech) and was based on regular-season performance. Coaches are also not allowed to vote for their own players.
