Boston College's Tyrese Rice was named ACC Player of the Week while Clemson's Terrence Oglesby earned ACC Rookie of the Week honors.

In earning the league's player of the week award for the second time this season, Rice scored a career-high 46 points in Saturday's 90-80 loss to second-ranked North Carolina. The Richmond, Va., product made 20 of 41 field goal attempts against the Tar Heels, including eight-of-12 from three-point range and 10 of his 11 free throw attempts.

Earlier in the week, Rice had 15 points and two rebounds in a 67-48 loss at Virginia Tech. The 6-1, 190-pound junior is currently second in the ACC in scoring (21.4) and fifth in assists (4.8).

In earning the league's rookie award for the second time this season, Oglesby capped a 20-point second half Clemson rally with a three-point field goal with 2.3 second remaining to lift the Tigers to a 73-70 victory at Maryland Sunday. The Cleveland, Tenn., freshman scored 12 points, all in the second half, against the Terps, making four-of-seven from behind the arc.

On the week, Oglesby averaged 9.0 points and 2.0 rebounds as the Tigers won twice.
