Gilchrist, Coppenrath, others nab weekly awards

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM


Gilchrist did a dynamite job handling the ball and making clutch shots in the ACC tournament. His performance against Duke in the final was simply amazing. He would not allow the Terps to go down to defeat.

Coppenrath came back from a wrist injury to lead the Catamounts to the NCAA Tournament by winning the America East, knocking off Maine. Coppenrath scored 43 points in the championship game.


The Huskies won the Big East tournament despite missing Emeka Okafor for two games. Ben Gordon stepped up, and coach Jim Calhoun was happy to win another Big East championship.


The Terps rallied from a 19-point halftime deficit to beat NC State in the ACC semifinals. Then came the championship comeback against Duke after being down 12 late. To beat the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 seeds to win the ACC championship is impressive.


That's right, give some love to the MEAC champion. The Rattlers beat the Nos. 1 and 2 seeds to make the NCAA Tournament despite having a losing record.
