Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon named ACC Player of the Week

virginia malcolm brogdonVirginia senior guard Malcolm Brogdon (Atlanta, Ga.) has been voted the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week after leading the Cavaliers in a pair of games against ranked foes last week.
Brogdon averaged 27 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals in Virginia’s games last week against then-No. 7 North Carolina and then-No. 12 Miami. He posted 26 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals to lead the Cavaliers to a 79-74 win over North Carolina on Saturday night.
Last Monday at then-No. 12 Miami, he matched a career high with 28 points on 12-of-18 shooting (4-of-7 on 3-pointers) in the Cavaliers’ 64-61 road loss.
This is Brogdon’s second ACC Player of the Week honor this year. He earned the distinction three weeks ago as well (Feb. 8) following wins over Boston College and Pitt.
This is the Cavaliers’ third ACC Player of the Week honoree of the season, as Anthony Gill was tabbed on Dec. 14. ACC weekly honors are determined by a vote of a 15-member media panel.
No. 4 Virginia (22-6, 11-5 ACC) plays Clemson at 7 p.m. Tuesday (March 1) in Greenville, S.C. ESPNU will televise the contest.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
