Brandon Ingram was honored for the third time as the ACC Rookie of the Week. Ingram, who received the ACC’s Rookie honor for the second week in a row, was once again a force on both ends of the, averaging 16.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 5.0 blocks per game in victories over Wake Forest and Virginia Tech. He shot .450 from the floor and .455 (5-of-11) from beyond the arc while playing an average of 38 minutes over the two games.
Ingram started the week with a 17-point effort in the win at Wake Forest, bolstered by a 5-of-6 effort from the free throw line. He blocked four shots and picked up three steals against the Demon Deacons, while adding five rebounds.
In Saturday’s win over Virginia Tech, the Kinston, North Carolina, native poured in 16 points of 4-of-7 shooting, including a 3-of-6 effort from the beyond the arc, and tallied nine rebounds. Perhaps most impressively, he blocked a season-high six shots to tie for the sixth-most by a Duke freshman in a game. The six blocks also matched the most by an ACC player in a game this season.
ACC basketball weekly honors are determined by a vote of a select media panel.
