Landers Nolley was rewarded for an impressive redshirt freshman season at Virginia Tech as the Hokies' star wing received multiple All-ACC honors today.

Nolley was named to the All-ACC Freshman Team along with Duke's Vernon Carey Jr. and Cassius Stanley, North Carolina's Cole Anthony, and Florida State's Patrick Williams. Nolley is the fifth Hokie to earn this honor and first since Devin Wilson in 2014.

Additionally, Nolley received All-ACC Honorable Mention honors after finishing with the most vote points to not make one of the three All-ACC teams while also finishing tied for second in the Freshman of the Year vote behind Vernon Carey Jr.

Nolley's strong start to the season may have been mitigated some by shooting struggles during February and early March, but the Georgia native had a strong season overall. Nolley was Tech's leading scorer averaging 15.6 points along with 5.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

The big question that surrounds Landers Nolley now is whether he will return to Virginia Tech next season after his father suggested to the Roanoke Times that Nolley will leave early for the 2020 NBA Draft.

Before then, Nolley and the Hokies will look to make a surprise run at the ACC Tournament as the #11 seed taking on #14 seed North Carolina in the opening round tomorrow at approximately 7pm at the Greensboro Coliseum.
