Women's basketball All-ACC teams: Alyssa Thomas and Lexie Brown receive honors

The Terps finished the season in third place in the ACC, on the losing end of a tiebreaker with Duke.

The regular season has concluded for women's basketball, which means it's time for the all-conference teams to be announced. Unlike in football, Maryland did not receive a snub in this category during their final season in the conference (although it would have been much harder with this group), and two players received honors, the conference announced in a release.

Unsurprisingly, superstar Alyssa Thomas has made the first-team ballot for the third year in a row (after making the second-team as a freshman). The two-time ACC player of the year is averaging 18.7 points per game (fourth in the conference) and is second in the ACC with 10.8 rebounds per contest. Thomas has 60 double-doubles in her Maryland career and astonishing six triple-doubles -- more than every other player in Maryland basketball history (men's and women's) combined.

Lexie Brown was named to the all-freshman team after finishing fifth in the ACC with 4.3 assists per game (and second in the conference with a 2.1 assist/turnover ratio).
