Maryland sophomore Alyssa Thomas walks away with the ACC Player Of The Year Award.

As the Maryland Terrapins women's basketball team gets ready for the ACC tournament after an impressive season, the Terps also has a player pick up an award. Sophomore Alyssa Thomas was voted the ACC Player Of The Year for her outstanding season with the Terps.

Maryland women's basketball sophomore Alyssa Thomas was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, announced by ACC Commissioner John Swofford Thursday. The conference's top individual honor is voted on by the league's "Blue Ribbon Panel," which consists of national and local media members, as well as school representatives.

"First, I have to thank my teammates and our coaches. They push me every single day and we play hard for each other," Thomas said in a release from the school. "This is such an honor because there's so many great players in our league."

Thomas leads the ACC in scoring per game with 17.0 points per game and is fifth in the ACC in rebounding with 8.5 rebounds per game, nearly averaging a double-double per game. Thomas won ACC Player Of The Week four times during the season, more than any other player in the conference.
