RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Maryland's Gary Williams is the Atlantic Coast Conference's coach of the year.
The ACC on Tuesday named Williams as its top coach as determined by a vote of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
Williams was an overwhelming choice to win the award for the second time and first since 2002 -- when he won the national championship.
He received 42 of 53 votes. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski was second with eight votes.
Williams' Terrapins enter this week's ACC tournament in Greensboro as the league's hottest team.
They have won seven straight, hold the No. 2 seed and earned a share of the regular-season title with a 13-3 league record -- their best since going 15-1 during the national title season in 2001-02.
