Wendell Moore & Jack White Named to All-ACC Academic Team

Duke senior forward Jack White and freshman forward Wendell Moore Jr., have been named to the 2020 All-ACC Academic Team, the conference announced Friday.

To be eligible for consideration to the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.

A sociology major and team captain, White earns All-ACC Academic status for the second consecutive year. The senior from Australia is averaging 3.2 points and 3.0 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game, and his 22 blocked shots rank fourth on the team.

Moore has contributed 7.6 points per game to go with 4.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists. He has had several marquee performances for the Blue Devils this season, including his game-winning tip-in to beat North Carolina at the buzzer in overtime on Feb. 8. Moore also scored a career-high 25 points at Wake Forest on Feb. 25 and set a Duke freshman single-game record with 15 made free throws.

This marks the 26th consecutive season Duke has had at least one selection to the All-ACC Academic Team. White and Moore are Duke’s 95th and 96th all-time selections.
