TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State University freshman forward Alexander Johnson, who ranks third among all ACC freshman in scoring (9.5 ppg) and rebounds (4.0 rpg), was named to the ACC All-Freshman Team in a vote by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Johnson joins former Seminole Corey Louis (1995) and current Seminole teammate Michael Joiner (2001) as the only three Florida State players who have been named to the All-ACC Freshman Team.
Johnson also earned Honorable Mention Freshman All-America honors by Rivals.Com.
Johnson enters the 2004 ACC Tournament as Florida State’s second leading scorer with a 9.5 points per game average. He is looking to become the first freshman since Randell Jackson in 1995 to finish a season ranked either first or second on the team in scoring. Jackson, too, averaged 9.5 points per game. The last freshman to lead the Seminoles in scoring was Larry Warren in 1974. Warren averaged 16.9 points per game.
Johnson is ranked third among all ACC freshmen in scoring (9.5 ppg) and third among all ACC freshmen in rebounding (4.0 rpg). Only Johnson and Luol Deng of Duke are ranked in the top three among the ACC freshman class in both scoring and rebounding.
