Duke Freshman Marvin Bagley III was named the ACC Rookie of the Week for the fifth time this season. Bagley led the Blue Devils to a pair of ACC wins last week with double-doubles in both victories.
The rookie scored 16 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in Wednesday’s 87-52 at Pitt – Duke’s largest margin of victory in an ACC road game since 1999. Bagley followed that with one of his best all-around games this season, scoring a game-high 30 points, with 11 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and a career-high four steals in Saturday’s 89-71 victory over Wake Forest.
Bagley set an ACC freshman record with his fifth 30-point game, while his 14 double-doubles have tied Duke’s freshman record. The Phoenix native leads the ACC in both scoring and rebounding, and is the only player in the country averaging 22.0+ points and 11.0+ rebounds.
ACC basketball weekly honors are determined by a vote of a 15-member media panel.
