She put up the program's highest scoring performance since February 2006 when she racked up 33 points at Miami of Ohio on November 21.
The All-ACC team was voted on by the league's 12 head coaches as well as the Blue Ribbon Panel, a group composed of media who report regularly on ACC women's basketball and vote for the weekly conference honors.
