Zion Williamson has earned ACC Freshman of the Week accolades for the fourth time this season. ACC weekly honors are determined by a vote of a 15-member media panel and are announced on Mondays throughout the regular season.
Williamson averaged a team-leading 27.5 points and shot .793 (23-of-29) from the field in a pair of wins at Notre Dame and over St. John’s this week. Williamson also averaged 9.0 rebounds, 3.0 blocks and 3.0 steals as No. 2 Duke improved to 19-2 overall and 7-1 in the ACC.
Against Notre Dame, the Spartanburg, South Carolina, freshman scored 26 points with nine rebounds and four blocks, hitting 10 of his 12 shots from the floor (1-of-1 from 3-point range). He followed with a game-high 29 points and six boards in Saturday’s 91-61 win over St. John’s, while adding a career-high tying five steals. Over the last four games, Williamson has scored 102 points and shot .796 (43-of-54) from the field.
