GREENSBORO, N.C. - Junior Iliana Sanza was named Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Week for her work in wins against Delaware and No. 17 Penn State.

Sanza, of Cockeysville, Md., earned her first career weekly honor after a pair of impressive performances that led a stingy Terrapin defense to two victories on the week including a 16-6 win at Penn State.

The Tewaaraton Trophy Watch List nominee racked up eight draw controls over two games, while also tallying four groundballs and a caused turnover. No. 2 Maryland will next take the field at 2 p.m. Saturday at No. 5 Duke.

Virginia senior Ainsley Baker was tabbed the ACC Offensive Player of the Week.
