GREENSBORO, N.C. - Georgia Tech junior guard Omoregie Uzzi was named to the 2011 Preseason All-Atlantic Coast Conference Team, announced Wednesday by the league office.
Uzzi (6-3, 300) was a second team All-ACC selection in 2010 after helping the Yellow Jackets lead the nation in rushing offense. The Lithonia (Ga.) native was also recently named to the preseason watch list for the Outland Trophy.
Voting for the preseason team was conducted by the media at the annual ACC Football Kickoff last Sunday and Monday in Pinehurst, N.C.
Fourteen of the 25 players on the preseason team are from Coastal Division schools. Miami and Florida State led the way with four selections each.
