Virginia Tech's Tellier named ACC Player of the Week

Virginia Tech's Monet Tellier became just the third Hokies player to earn ACC Player of the Week honors Monday, a tribute to her sizzling performance in last week's mega-upset at No. 7 Maryland.

Tellier tied her career high with 31 points - including a career-high five 3-pointers - as the Hokies stunned the Terrapins 71-65. The Hokies sophomore guard also scored 18 points in a loss at Miami, and 16 in Sunday's setback to North Carolina State.

Tellier joins Lindsay Biggs (2009-10) and Shanel Harrison (2010-11) as the only Hokies to receive ACC Player of the Week honors. Tech joined the conference starting with the 2004-05 season.
