Mike Scott Selected First-Team All-District 2 By NABC
CHARLOTTESVILLE-Virginia senior forward Mike Scott (Chesapeake, Va.) is a first-team selection to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division I All-District 2 Team.
Members of the NABC selected the association’s 24 all-district teams.
Joining Scott as first-team selections on the NABC’s All-District 2 Team are Harrison Barnes (North Carolina), Austin Rivers (Duke), Terrell Stoglin (Maryland) and Tyler Zeller (North Carolina). Selected to the second team were John Henson (North Carolina), Bernard James (Florida State), Kendall Marshall (North Carolina), Mason Plumlee (Duke) and Michael Snaer (Florida State).
The 6-8 Scott, who earned first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors this season, is averaging 18.1 points and 8.4 rebounds a game, while shooting 56.2 percent (209-372) from the field and 81.0 percent (136-168) from the free-throw line. Through games played in the ACC Tournament, he ranked first among conference players in field goal percentage, second in scoring, fifth in rebounding and seventh in free throw percentage.
Scott also leads all active ACC players in career points scored (1,523) and rebounds (938). He is the 33rd player in ACC history to record 1,500 career points and 900 career rebounds.
Scott was named the ACC Player of the Week four times during the 2011-12 regular season. He is the first Virginia player to earn the honor four times in one season. Barry Parkhill (1971-72), Ralph Sampson (1982-83), Bryant Stith (1989-90) and Norman Nolan (1997-98) all were named ACC Player of the Week three times in a season.
Scott has also received third-team Sporting News All-America honors and first-team All-District III honors from the U.S. Basketball Writers Association this season.
