Lutherville, junior, faceoff specialist

In a wild ending to a thrilling Atlantic Coast Conference matchup, Kelly put an exclamation mark on the No. 10 Tar Heels' 17-15 upset of then-No. 1 Notre Dame. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Calvert Hall graduate took all 35 faceoffs for North Carolina, setting game highs in wins (19) and ground balls (12). Kelly also added an assist and took four shots with none being bigger than the one that ended a tie at 15 with 2:50 left in regulation. Kelly, who has won at least 19 faceoffs in four career games, was named the ACC's Defensive Player of the Week.
