For the first time since Louisville joined the ACC three years ago, the Cardinals have a First Team representative on the league's postseason all-conference squad.

Donovan Mitchell, who leads the Cardinals in scoring (15.9 ppg), steals, three-point goals and minutes played (31.9 per game), picked up the honor Sunday afternoon. Mitchell was also named to the league's All-Defensive Team.

Here are the full list of honorees from the ACC, which includes a Dunder-Mifflin employee picking up the coach of the year nod.
