North Carolina’s Reggie Bullock has been named the ACC Player of the Week, while Boston College’s Olivier Hanlan has been selected the league’s Rookie of the Week.
Bullock scored a career-high 24 points in the Tar Heels’ 62-52 win over Maryland Saturday, bettering his previous high of 23 points versus Tennessee State on Nov. 22, 2011. The Kinston, N.C., junior had 21 first-half points, out-scoring the visiting Terps by one point as North Carolina built a 42-20 halftime lead. Bullock hit on 7-of-15 from the floor, including 4-of-7 from 3-point range and pulled down five rebounds in the victory.
In earning ACC rookie honors for the second straight week and third time this season, Hanlan had 17 points, four rebounds and four assists in Wednesday’s 60-59 loss to Miami. Playing 39 minutes against the Hurricanes, the Almyer, Quebec, freshman was 6-of-10 from the field en route to scoring in double figures for the ninth-straight game. Hanlan leads ACC freshmen and is 14th in scoring at 13.6 points per game.
