Honor roll in the ACC, CAA and MEAC

A rundown of the weekly awards in the leagues we care the most about:

Elizabeth Williams
Player of the week: Chelsea Gray, Duke
The Blue Devils' sophomore guard went for a career-high 17 points and 11 assists in a victory over No. 8 Maryland - Duke's 34th straight win at Cameron Indoor Stadium - and contributed 16 points in a road victory over Georgia Tech.

Rookie of the week: Elizabeth Williams, Duke
Maybe they should start naming this award after the former Princess Anne High star. Williams copped the honor for the third straight week and sixth time this season after averaging 18 points, 9 rebounds and 3.5 blocks in the wins over Maryland and Georgia Tech.

Taleia Moton
Player of the week: Taleia Moton, George Mason
 The explosive senior guard was white-hot in December, then cooled a bit but has caught fire again. Moton singed William and Mary for a game-high 28 points, then dropped 29 on VCU while shooting a school- and Patriot Center-record 87.5 percent from the field (12 of 14). Moton now has three straight games with at least 28 points.

Rookie of the week: Toia Giggetts, James Madison
The former Lake Taylor High star claimed this award for the second straight week largely on the strength of the 21-point, 11-rebound performance she threw down in JMU's stunning 81-63 victory at Hofstra.

Jericka Jenkins
Player of the week: Jericka Jenkins, Hampton
Jenkins had 16 points, 12 assists, 5 rebounds and 4 steals in a win over Morgan State, then hit Norfolk State for 12 points and a career-high 17 assists.

Rookie of the week: Tiffanie Adair, North Carolina A&T
The sophomore forward had 20 points and 9 rebounds in an overtime loss to Morgan State.

Co-defensive players of the week: Ariel Phelps, Hampton and Antonia Bennett, Florida A&M
Phelps, formerly of Tallwood High, had 16 rebounds, 5 blocks and 2 steals (along with 15 points) in two victories. Bennett contributed 16 rebounds, 3 blocks and 4 steals to a pair of Lady Rattlers wins.

Player of the week: Cheyenne Parker, High Point
Parker averaged 18 points and a ridiculous 19.5 rebounds for conference-leading High Point in victories over Coastal Carolina and Charleston Southern.

Rookie of the week: Shatia Cole, Coastal Carolina
Averaged 17 points and shot 54 percent from the field in two games.
