The Blue Devils received 41 first-place votes and were named preseason favorites for the second year in a row. Duke finished 26-9 last season and returns guards Quinn Cook and Rasheed Sulaimon as well as forward Amile Jefferson.
Duke freshman Jahlil Okafor, the No. 1 recruit in the 2014 class according to Rivals.com, was chosen as the conference's preseason Rookie of the Year.
Louisville's Montrezl Harrell, Virginia's Malcolm Brogdon, Notre Dame's Jerian Grant and Okafor join Paige on the preseason All-ACC team.
The 2014-15 season will be Louisville's first in the ACC. It will be the conference's first season without Maryland, who is now in the Big Ten.
