Hokies’ Kitley, Irish’s Ivey lead ACC season honors

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Virginia Tech’s Elizabeth Kitley has been named Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year for the second straight season while Notre Dame’s Niele Ivey has been named coach of the year. The league announced its award winners Tuesday, with Kitley repeating after averaging 18.8 points and a league-best 10.7 rebounds. The 6-foot-6 senior also became the program’s all-time leading scorer last week in a game that ended with her hitting a jumper at the buzzer to win at No. 18 North Carolina. Ivey led the 10th-ranked Fighting Irish to the regular-season title.
