Florida State basketball players named to All-ACC honors

Patrick Williams gets a nod for coming off the bench, and Trent Forrest gets recognized for his defensive prowess

NCAA Basketball: Florida State at Clemson Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton wasn’t the only Seminole honored Monday morning, as Trent Forrest was named to the All-ACC Defensive Team, and freshman Patrick Williams was named as the ACC’s Sixth Man of the Year.

Williams is the second straight Florida State player to be named to the award, following in the footsteps of Mfiondu Kabengele.

Forrest finished second in voting for the league’s top defender, while he and Devin Vassell were both named to the All-ACC Second Team.

“If you look in the Webster Dictionary and you see student-athlete, his picture is right next to it, with a Seminole on his shirt,” Hamilton said about Forrest following Saturday’s ACC regular season title-clinching win over Boston College. “He’s a good student. He’s a good leader, very well respected. He probably could run for mayor, as a write-in candidate in Chipley and win by a landslide.”

Florida State starts ACC Tournament play this Thursday, facing the winner of Clemson and Miami.
