CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Atlantic Coast Conference Wednesday (Jan. 30) announced its ninth annual class of ACC Women's Basketball Legends with former Cavalier Daphne Hawkins (1984-88) being selected as Virginia's honoree.
Hawkins ended her career at Virginia ranked third on the career point list (1,538) after scoring a then-school record 592 points her senior season. Hawkins was named to the 1988 NCAA All-Regional team after scoring 22 points in a victory over Rutgers to help Virginia advance to the Elite Eight. The Washington, D.C., native was a two-time first-team All-ACC honoree in 1986 and 1988 and earned second-team honors as a junior in 1987. She was named the Virginia State Player of the Year as a sophomore. She averaged 13.9 points per game in her four seasons at Virginia, which ranked third at the time of her graduation, and 18.5 points per game her senior season. In her four seasons at Virginia, the team went 100-21, making four appearances in the NCAA Tournament. In ACC play, Hawkins and her teammates were 46-10 and won regular season titles in 1986 and 1987, while earning a share of the league regular season crown in 1988. Hawkins resides in Washington, D.C. and is self-employed in the field of personal property management.
The Legends will be honored at the annual ACC Women's Basketball Legends' Brunch on Saturday, March 9 at 10 a.m., and then will be introduced to the Coliseum crowd at halftime of the first semifinal game on Saturday, March 9. The ACC Women's Basketball Legends program honors both players and coaches from each of the ACC's 12 schools who have contributed to the league's rich tradition.
Included in this year's class are 12 former-student-athletes, who represent three decades of ACC Women's Basketball. Below is a complete list of this year's Legends, and the accolades from their playing careers.
