ESPN.com's Jason King has released his regular season awards, listing Miami in numerous categories. 

King picked Shane Larkin as the ACC Player of the Year and a second-team All-America while Jim Larranaga is the ACC Coach of the Year. 

Larkin was chosen for the All-ACC first team and Kenny Kadji earned second team honors. Larranaga is also listed on the All-Coaches first team. 

Reggie Johnson's tip in at NC State earned King's nod as one of the top five games in 2013 and Julian Gamble is listed as Miami's unsung hero during UM's surge through conference play. 

Check out Miami's awards below and King's complete release here

All-America Teams - Second Team
Shane Larkin, sophomore, Miami: Point guard has led the Hurricanes to their first regular-season conference title since 2000 … Averages a team-high 13.8 points and 4.6 assists … Son of former former Major League Baseball star Barry Larkin shoots 48.6 percent from the field … Averaged 18 points in four games against North Carolina and Duke.

Best Game
Miami at NC State (Feb. 2): Reggie Johnson tipped in an errant shot with 0.8 seconds remaining to give Miami a 79-78 victory over the Wolfpack in Raleigh. The game lived up to its lofty billing, with Miami leading by nine points in the first half and trailing by as many as 10 after intermission.

Don't forget to write (good-guy seniors I'll miss)
Julian Gamble, Miami: Gamble is one of the unsung heroes of the Hurricanes' surge. The forward averages 6.4 points, five rebounds and nearly two blocks and always offers good perspective on Miami's climb to the top of the ACC.
