After years of seeing its preseason all-conference teams littered with Cardinals, Louisville will celebrate just one such selection in its first summer as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
DeVante Parker was the lone U of L honoree on the ACC's official Preseason All-Conference team, which features nine selections from reigning national champion Florida State. Duke placed four players on the team, Clemson and Virginia Tech three, Miami had two, while Boston College, Louisville, North Carolina, Syracuse and Virginia each had one honoree apiece.
