Virginia’s Faith Randolph Named ACC Sixth Player of the Year

GREENSBORO, N.C.— The Virginia women’s basketball team’s sophomore guard Faith Randolph (Derwood, Md.) was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Sixth Player of the Year by a vote of the conference’s head coaches.

Randolph, who only started four games this season but averaged 23.4 minutes per game, led all non-starters in the ACC by averaging 12.4 points per game. Despite coming off the bench this season, Randolph was second on the Cavaliers in scoring, posting five 20-point performances, and logged 42 steals. Randolph is ranked in the top-15 in the conference in free throw percentage (75.7 percent) and the top-25 in scoring in conference games, averaging 13.7 points per game.

With Randolph’s selection, Virginia becomes the first school to have two Sixth Player of the Year honorees since the award began in 2008. Ariana Moorer was named in 2011.
