Freshman Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who led FSU in scoring, assists, and steals, was named to the ACC All Freshman team by the members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. XRM, who averaged 14.4 points per game, was one of two ACC freshman to score more than 12.5 per contest. Duke's Jahlil Okafor was named both Freshman of the Year as well as Player of the Year.

XRM was also named an honorable mention All ACC player, and was the only Florida State played named to any of the teams.
