RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Greivis Vasquez is the Atlantic Coast Conference's player of the year.
The Maryland star on Tuesday won the league's top individual honor following a season in which he averaged nearly 20 points and helped lead the Terrapins to a share of the regular-season title.
Vasquez received 39 of a possible 53 votes by members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Duke's Jon Scheyer received 12 votes and Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney had two.
Vasquez is the sixth Maryland player to win the award and the first since Juan Dixon in 2002. He was a unanimous selection to the all-ACC first team a day earlier.
