University of Miami sophomore guard Guillermo Diaz was named second-team All-ACC, junior guard Rob Hite was named honorable mention All-ACC and sophomore forward Anthony King was named to the ACC All-Defensive Team by a vote of the league’s media members on Monday.

Diaz has started all 27 games this season averaging 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 steals per game. He leads Miami in scoring and has scored in double figures in 25 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the ACC, and scored 20 or more points in nine of the Hurricanes’ 16 league games this season.

In league games only, Diaz is averaging 20.7 points and 2.13 steals per game while shooting 45.6 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range. He is the only player in the ACC to rank among the top 10 in scoring (2nd), field goal percentage (8th), three-point field goal percentage (10th) and steals (3rd).

Hite is averaging 17.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game this season. He has scored in double figures in 24 games this season and ranks among the ACC leaders in scoring (3rd), rebounding (21st), steals (12th), three-point field goal percentage (12th) and three-point field goals made (4th).

This season Hite became the 27th player in UM history to record 1,000 career points. He currently ranks 22nd on UM’s career scoring list with 1,123 points.

King has started all 27 games this season at center averaging 6.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game. He ended the regular season ranked No. 2 in the ACC in blocked shots and was fifth in rebounding. Earlier this season King set a UM and ACC record with 13 blocks against Florida Atlantic (11-29-04). He currently ranks second on UM’s single-season blocked shot list with 83 and needs just two blocks to tie Miami’s all-time single-season record.
