Durham, NC -- Notre Dame repeated as ACC Regular Season Champions in 2015, and Jewell Loyd followed suit, repeating as our selection for ACC Women's Basketball Digest Player of the Year. Irish freshman Brianna Turner is our 2015 Digest ACC Rookie of the Year, and she also joins Loyd on our five player All-ACC first team. Duke's Elizabeth Williams is the Digest ACC Defensive Player of the Year (a repeat honor) and also a first-team All-ACC selection. Our 2015 ACC Coach of the Year is Suzie McConnell-Serio of Pitt (19-10, 9-7 ACC), who led the Panthers to a seventh place league finish and likely NCAA berth. ACC coaches picked Pitt to finish 14th while the media Blue Ribbon Panel picked them to finish dead last. Pitt's Brianna Kiesel is also a first-team All-ACC selection, along with ACC newcomer Adut Bulgak of Florida State, who helped lead the Seminoles to a second place league finish.

Syracuse's Alexis Peterson is the Digest's Most Improved Player for 2015 while teammate Diamond Henderson is our Digest Sixth Player of the Year. Joining Notre Dame's Turner on the All-Rookie First Team are Azurá Stevens and Rebecca Greenwell of Duke, Mariya Moore of ACC newcomer Louisville, and Virginia's Mikayla Venson.

A full list of honorees follows, including Digest selections for Most Outstanding Player from each ACC team. We congratulate the winners, and wish all players and teams best of luck in the 2015 ACC Tournament!
