Leslie, Brown Honored By ACC

NC State sophomore forward C.J. Leslie was named second-team All-ACC and sophomore guard Lorenzo Brown was tabbed a third-team pick on Monday by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA).

Leslie, a sophomore from Holly Springs, North Carolina, was statistically one of the league's top players. He finished the regular season averaging 14.3 points (9th in the ACC), 7.1 rebounds (9th), and 1.7 blocks (5th), while shooting 51.4% from the field (3rd).

He was even better in conference games, averaging 15.3 points (7th), 7.9 rebounds (8th), and 1.3 blocks (9th), while shooting 50.3% from the field (4th).

Brown, a sophomore from Roswell, Georgia, was very good in his first year at point guard. He paced the Wolfpack's offense, which was one of the most efficient in the ACC. Brown averaged 12.5 points (17th), 6.3 assists (2nd), and 1.7 steals, which led the league. His assist-to-turnover ratio (1.9), was fourth-best in the league, and Brown's 4.4 rebounds per game led all ACC point guards.

Both players stepped their games up late in the season. Over the last six games of the season, Leslie averaged 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks while shooting 54.3% from the field. Over the same stretch, Brown averaged 15.5 points, 4.5 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.5 steals.
