Regular-season champion Duke chalked up some more ACC women’s basketball awards on Thursday.
Blue Devil mentor Joanne P. McCallie was named coach of the year by the Blue Ribbon panel, while Maryland’s Brenda Frese got the honor from her fellow coaches.
And in player of the year voting the Blue Devils’ junior guard Chelsea Gray — whose season was ended when she tore an MCL on Feb. 14 — tied with Maryland junior Alyssa Thomas in the coaches’ poll. The Blue Ribbon panel, made up largely of media members, gave its honor solely to Thomas.
