Durham, N.C. - Duke's Reid Carleton and Henrique Cunha were among the 18 players named to the 2011 All-ACC team as voted on by the league's 12 head coaches.

Carleton, a senior from Naples, Fla., picks up his third career All-ACC selection. He was also named to the team in 2008 and 2010. This season he has tallied a career-high 33 singles victories, including an 8-2 ACC record and 19 wins over ranked opponents. He became the third player in school history to join the 100-win club for both singles and doubles and now ranks ninth with 100 singles victories and tied for second with 113 doubles wins.

Cunha, a sophomore from Jaú, Brazil, has been tabbed All-ACC in each of his first two seasons with the Blue Devils. He has won 32 singles matches this season with a 9-2 record in ACC play and 18 wins over ranked foes. He is one of only two players in Duke history to win 30 or more matches in both their freshman and sophomore seasons.

Carleton and Cunha have teamed up for a 34-5 record in doubles and in just two seasons have tied the school record for most doubles wins by a duo with 75 in their career. The 34 victories rank third on the singles season list at Duke. The two were 8-2 in ACC matches this year.

Duke has had two or more All-ACC selections in 23 of the past 25 seasons.
