re: Hansbrough last year became the third player in league history to be unanimously named to the all-ACC team three times, joining North Carolina State's David Thompson (1973-75) and Duke's Art Heyman (1961-63), and was the first to do it in his first three years in the league.

David Thompson and Art Heyman were not allowed to play as Freshmen. Therefore, they also were unanimous All-ACC players in their "first three years in the league." And, for those who are going to cry that Tyler was a mere Freshman when he won for the first time, while Thompson and Heyman were Sophomores, don't forget that Hansbrough also entered the ACC almost two years older than most freshmen.
