UNC's McDaniel named ACC rookie of year

Tuesday - 3/5/2013, 3:30pm  ET

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's Xylina McDaniel is the Atlantic Coast Conference's rookie of the year.

The league on Tuesday announced McDaniel was selected as its top rookie by two groups -- a panel of media members and school representatives, and its 12 head coaches.

McDaniel is the daughter of former NBA player and coach Xavier McDaniel. She led all ACC rookies with averages of 12.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.5 steals.

She was one of four players picked to both voting groups' all-freshman team. She was joined by Duke's Alexis Jones, Georgia Tech's Brittany Jackson and Boston College's Nicole Boudreau.

The fifth player picked by media members and school reps was Maryland guard Chloe Pavelich while Terps teammate Malina Howard was selected by the coaches.
