Stoglin, Faust close regular season with ACC honors

Maryland sophomore Terrell Stoglin, the ACC’s leading scorer, has been named to the second team All-ACC squad in voting by members of the league’s media association.

The Terps’ versatile freshman Nick Faust, who has alternated between point guard and shooting guard this season, earned a spot on the ACC’s All-Freshman team.

The results of the balloting were released by ACC officials on Monday.

The 6-1 Stoglin concluded the regular season scoring a league-high 21.2 points per game average. Rounding out the second team were North Carolina’s Kendall Marshall, Florida State’s Michael Snaer, N.C. State’s C.J. Leslie of NC State and Virginia Tech’s Erick Green.

Heading into the ACC Tournament, Stoglin is on pace to become the sixth Terrapin to lead the league in scoring, joining Joe Smith (1995), Walt Williams (1993), Len Bias (1985, 1986) and Albert King (1980).

The 6-5 Faust, who took over as the Terps’ starting point guard for a second time this season following Pe’Shon Howard’s season-ending knee injury in January, is averaging 8.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. And he is closing the season on a strong note, scoring in double-figures in six of Maryland’s last seven games.

Joining Faust on the All-Freshman Team: Duke’s Austin Rivers, Boston College’s Ryan Anderson, Virginia Tech’s Dorian Finney-Smith and Miami’s Shane Larkin.

North Carolina placed three players on the All-ACC first team: Tyler Zeller, John Henson and Harrison Barnes. They were joined by Virginia’s Mike Scott and Duke’s Rivers.
