He is the only holdover from the ’15 All-ACC first or second teams. He is among only five returnees from among the league’s top 15 scorers. He is officially the ACC’s best returning free throw shooter (.879). He was the leading scorer on the conference’s low octane first-place team during the 2015 regular season (14.0), just as he was in 2014 (12.7).
With another season like his last two, Malcolm Brogdon, the Virginia senior, is well-positioned to join an elite assemblage – the 23 players in conference history selected three times by the media for the first team All-ACC squad.
That achievement has become even rarer in modern history. Since 2000 only three players were three-time selections: Maryland’s Juan Dixon, Virginia’s Sean Singletary, and North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough.
In fact Hansbrough is the only four-time choice in the 43 years since freshmen became eligible for varsity competition.
Virginia has had a trio of three-time first-teamers: Ralph Sampson, the ACC and national player of the year from 1981 through 1983; Bryant Stith; and Sean Singletary. `
