Terp Named ACC Player of the Year

No surprise, Toliver named conference's best

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A few days after being named to the all-Atlantic Coast Conference's women's basketball first team -- again -- Maryland guard Kristi Toliver was named the conference's player of the year.

Toliver ranks second in the league in scoring with an average of 18.1 points per game. She leads the ACC with 5.1 assists per game. She entered Friday's ACC quarterfinal matchup against Wake Forest with 1,939 career points -- third in school history.

Florida State's Sue Semrau was named the top coach. Semrau led the Seminoles to a 24-6 record, a 12-2 finish in league play and a share of the first regular-season ACC title in school history. Florida State was the preseason pick to finish fifth.

The honors are determined by the league's 45-person committee of coaches, school representatives and media members.
