I don't know ANYTHING about the players who are under consideration for 1st

team All-ACC.

When I see Jocelyn in the video highlights, she strikes me as a fundamentally sound and determined player, but she doesn't seem flashy or spectacular.

When I was at UVA during the 1970-71 season, the Hoos had a player just like that -- Bill Gerry -- who deserved 1st team All-ACC recognition, but who was relegated to the 2nd team. Bill (to distinguish him from his brother Larry, who followed him to UVA) was a strong 6'7" forward with great fundamentals (his footwork on the low post was a thing of beauty). A bit like Junior Burroughs, but a generation earlier.

Anyway, my point is that players who aren't flashy don't always get the recognition they deserve. I certainly hope that Jocelyn gets 1st team honors, but I don't necessarily expect that to happen.
