Matt Farrell Named To All-ACC Third Team

March 4, 2018

University of Notre Dame men's basketball senior guard Matt Farrell (Bridgewater, New Jersey) has been named to the All-ACC Third Team, announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Sunday, March 4, 2018. 

Farrell, who missed five league games with a severly sprained ankle, averaged 16.7 points per game, 5.5 assists per game and shot .408 from three-point range. He ranks among the conference leaders in three-point field goals made (1st, 3.92), assists (2nd, 5.5), assist/turnover ratio (7th, 2.29) scoring (10th, 16.7 ppg) and minutes played (11th, 35.6 per game). 

His 10 three-point field goals at Boston College on February 17, 2018, was the high for an ACC player this season and tied the Notre Dame single-game school record. 

Farrell was an honorable mention all-ACC selection as a junior in 2016-17. 

Among other Notre Dame notables, senior Martinas Geben finished tied for second in voting for the Most Improved Player Award, captured by North Carolina's Luke Maye. Junior defensive stopper Rex Pflueger earned one vote the the Defensive Player of the Year.
