Vasquez, J. Williams earn ACC weekly honors

Senior guard Greivis Vasquez earned ACC player of the week honors for the second consecutive week and freshman forward Jordan Williams was recognized as the conference's rookie of the week, the ACC announced Monday.

This is the fourth time this season that Vasquez has earned ACC player of the week honors. He averaged 28.0 points, 9.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds in two games last week and was a unanimous selection.

For Williams, it was the second time this season he has been honored as the ACC rookie of the week. He averaged 13.5 points and 10.0 rebounds during wins last week over Clemson and Virginia Tech.

If Grevis outshines Scheyer on Wed then he most definitely deserves POY. I think it is a little too early to just pass him the crown, although he just beat up Delaney. There is still too much at stake and I am trying to temper my excitment. This would be a program defining win in an already better than expected season. GO TERPS!!

Most of the journalists are from NC so it wouldn't surprise me if Scheyerface wins. Vasquez is by far the best and most valuable player in the conference. Just remember back to 2002, Juan was national player of the year, but did not win ACC POY. That went to Jason Williams of Duke. The Terps were regular season champs at 15-1 in the conference and that still wasn't enough. Stupid Carolina bias...

Favors gets my vote for Rookie of the Year. Jordan is a beast and could be ACC POY in a few years, but Favors is on a totally different level as a freshman.

Wrong. You've got this backwards. Juan was ACC player of the year in 2002, but Jason Williams was National Player of the Year. The carolina bias didn't stop Juan from getting it.
