Michael Shabaz. Player of the Week. Again.

This is starting to get repetitive:

Virginia senior tennis player Michael Shabaz (Fairfax, Va.) was named ACC Men's Tennis Player of the Week, conference officials announced Tuesday. Shabaz, who receives the award for the third consecutive week and the fifth time this season, helped the top-ranked Cavaliers post road wins at No. 29 Miami and No. 46 Florida State last week.

Shabaz becomes the first Virginia player to receive the award three consecutive weeks. His five awards are the most for a Cavalier in a season, breaking the previous high of four awards set by Somdev Devvarman in 2008.

Shabaz went 2-0 in singles and 2-0 in doubles last week. In singles, he defeated Waylon Chin of Miami 6-1, 6-3 and No. 26 Vahid Mirzadeh of Florida State 6-4, 6-1. In doubles, he teamed with Drew Courtney (Clifton, Va.) for a pair of wins, including a 9-8 win over the 15th-ranked Seminole duo of Mirzadeh and Connor Smith.

Shabaz has now won the conference Player of the Week award seven times. Only one ACC player has ever won more -- again, that player was UVa legend Devvarman. During his standout career at Virginia, Devvarman took home nine POTW awards.

If you aren't constantly impressed with the outstanding program that Brian Boland has built at the University, you just aren't paying attention.
