Maryland junior guard Dez Wells has been named to the media's All-ACC Third Team, the conference announced Monday afternoon.

Wells is averaging 14.8 points and 4.4 rebounds per game this season, including a season high of 33 in a Dec. 12 win over Boston College to open ACC play.

He is joined on the All-ACC Third Team by Olivier Hanlan of Boston College, Joe Harris of Virginia, Rion Brown of Miami, and Daniel Miller of Georgia Tech.

During the regular season, Wells had a penchant for carrying his Maryland teammates in the second half of key games. He did the same again on Sunday against No. 5 Virginia, scoring 16 of his 18 points after halftime en route to a 75-69 upset of the Cavaliers.

Head coach Mark Turgeon was complimentary of Wells, saying he has been the "most consistent player" so far in his tenure with the program.

Maryland will face No. 9-seeded Florida State in the ACC tournament on Thursday in Greensboro, N.C.
