ACC BASKETBALL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

Duke's Jon Scheyer has been named ACC Player of the Week, while Wake Forest's C.J. Harris earned ACC Rookie of the Week honors.

Scheyer averaged 28.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 8.5 assists and 1.5 steals while leading Duke to wins over Gardner-Webb and No. 15 Gonzaga. The Northbrook, Ill., native shot 64.0 percent (16-of-25) from the field, 69.2 percent (9-of-13) from three-point range and 93.8 percent (15-of-16) from the foul line for the week.

Scheyer recorded a career-high 36 points to go along with eight rebounds and a career-best nine assists in last Tuesday's 113-68 win over Gardner-Webb. He was 11-of-13 from the field, including 7-of-9 from three-point range in the contest. In earning the award for the second time this season, Scheyer closed out the week with a 20-point, five-rebound, eight-assist effort in Duke's 76-41 win over 15th-ranked Gonzaga Saturday in New York's Madison Square Garden.

In earning the Rookie Award for the third time this season, C.J. Harris averaged 10.5 points and scored in double figures in both of Wake Forest's two wins last week. In the Deacons' 80-69 win at UNC Wilmington on Wednesday, Harris scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting. He also had two steals on the defensive end.

In Wake Forest's 67-59 win over NC State on Sunday, Harris finished with 10 points and four rebounds. He also had a steal and committed just one turnover in 28 minutes of action. On the season, Harris is 12.2 points per game and is shooting 50 percent (36-of-72). He has made 14-of-29 from three-point range for 48.3 percent.
