Maryland’s 2010-2011 regular season fell short of expectations, with the Terps (18-13, 7-9) finishing under .500 in conference play and seventh in the league standings.
Nonetheless, post-season honors have started rolling in for the Terps’ top scorers, sophomore center Jordan Williams and freshman point guard Terrell Stoglin.
Williams was named Monday to the all-ACC first team, while Stoglin earned a spot on the all-freshman team.
Williams trailed only Duke’s senior guard Nolan Smith, a unanimous pick, in total points awarded in voting by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Rounding out the first team: Malcolm Delaney of Virginia Tech, Kyle Singler of Duke and Reggie Jackson of Boston College.
Williams, who averaged a team-high 16.9 points per game, was the ACC’s top rebounder (11.6 per game) and third best in the nation. His 23 double-doubles set a single-season school record.
Stoglin, who averaged 11.6 points per game, was honored as ACC Rookie of the Year two weeks in a row. He scored 20 or more points in four of the Terps’ last four games. Also named to the all-freshman team: North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes and Kendall Marshall, Travis McKie of Wake Forest and C.J. Leslie of N.C. State.
Also Monday, FOXSports.com and Yahoo! Sports named Williams to their third-team all-America squads.
After taking Sunday off, the Terps returned to practice Monday to prepare for their first-round ACC Tournament meeting with N.C. State in Greensboro Thursday at 7 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
With a victory, Maryland would advance to a 7 p.m. quarterfinal against No. 2 seed Duke.
