Duke's Gerald "Elbows" Henderson has been named ACC Player of the Week and Florida State's Soloman Alabi is the ACC Rookie of the Week.

Little is known about Henderson other than he plays for Duke and has a propensity to create offense “space” with his left elbow. He played in a couple of games last week and scored some points and got some rebounds, steals, blocks and assists.

In earning ACC Rookie honors for the second time in four weeks, Alabi averaged 10.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.0 blocked shots as the Seminoles split two league games. In Tuesday's 72-67 setback at Boston College, Alabi had 16 points, seven rebounds, four blocked shots and two assists while playing a career-high 34 minutes.

In Saturday's 73-66 win over No. 12 Clemson, the Kaduna, Nigeria, freshman had five points and two blocked shots, both of which came in the game's final 2:25 to preserve the win. Alabi currently leads the ACC in blocked shots per game (2.1).
