Hamby wins ACC Player of the Week honors

Dearica Hamby in action against UNC-W - Dana Warren

Wake Forest junior Dearica Hamby wins her first ACC Player of the Week award following great performances against Clemson, North Carolina and Boston College.

Wake Forest forward Dearica Hamby won Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week honors Monday, per a release from the conference office. Hamby has produced 5 double-doubles in a row for the Demon Deacons, and 16 for the season thus far. Hamby scored 29 points and grabbed 18 boards in a road win over Clemson last Sunday, then scored 22 more points with 11 rebounds in a home loss to North Carolina. She capped off her week by scoring 21 points and snatching 16 rebounds in the Deacs' 56-50 come-from-behind victory Sunday over Boston College in Chestnut Hill.

Hamby is enjoying a breakthrough season after spending 2012-2013 deferring to a senior-laden Demon Deacon team that included prolific scorer Lakevia Boykin and center Sandra Garcia. Now a junior, Hamby is called upon to anchor a young Wake Forest team along with senior point guard Chelsea Douglas (who has also earned Player of the Week honors this season).

Next up for the Demon Deacons is a visit  Thursday night from Virginia, fresh off their upset victory over highly-ranked Maryland.
