ACC PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough was named ACC Player of the Week and Boston College's Corey Raji was selected as ACC Rookie of the Week.

In earning the player of the week honors for the second time this season and third time in his career, Hansbrough turned in his 20th career "double-double" scoring a season-high 29 points and pulling down 10 rebounds in Tuesday's 106-71 win at Penn. Hansbrough currently leads the ACC in scoring (21.4) and is second in rebounding (9.6).
Raji averaged 15.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per game as the Eagles went 2-0, defeating St. Louis and Maryland. The Washington Township, N.J., forward opened the week with a 13-point, seven-rebound effort in a 61-39 win over the Billikens. Five nights later, against the Terps in his ACC debut, Raji had 17 points and three rebounds in 18 minutes of action in the Eagles 81-78 victory.
