GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson picked up its fourth ACC Player of the Week honor of the 2020-21 season as Maliah Morris was named Offensive Player of the Week, announced by the conference office on Tuesday. It is the second ACC weekly award of the sophomore’s career after earning her first in the 2019 season following her game-winning-goal to knock off No. 7 South Carolina.
In the Tigers’ most recent matchup against Georgia, Morris netted a single-game, career-high five points courtesy of two goals and a primary assist. It is the most points recorded in a single game by a Clemson player since Oct. 21, 2018, when Mariana Speckmaier tallied a similar stat line against Virginia Tech. The Germantown, Md. native’s five-point effort in the match propelled her into second on the team for total points with 14 while her brace marked the second, multi-goal game of her career after recording her first in the spring opener.
Morris has been a constant force in the Tigers’ offense this season, leading the team in both shots (37) and shots on goal (17). In Clemson’s four spring matches, Morris has scored five goals while adding two assists.
Kaitlyn Parks of Wake Forest joins Morris in the weekly honor, picking up this week’s ACC Defensive Player of the Week award.
