We are heading down the home stretch of conference play with the ACC tournament in plain sight of everyone. The games now have more at stake, and teams are trying to give themselves the best seeding possible. With three weeks until the conference tournament, here are how things look.
The ACC player of the week is Clemson’s, Gabe DeVoe. He matched his career-high in points with 25 in a win over Pittsburgh. He also became just the second player in Tigers history to make at least five three-pointers in four consecutive games.
There are Co-Rookies of the week in the league. Duke’s Gary Trent Jr. dropped 16 on UNC in last week’s loss in Chapel Hill. For Trent, it was his 13th double-double in his last 14 games. He also has 18 double-digit scoring games this season.
Trent is joined by Miami’s Lonnie Walker IV. His 19 points helped lead the Hurricanes past Wake Forest last Wednesday night, 87-81. Walker has scored in double figures in eight-straight games and currently ranks sixth in scoring by a freshman at 11.5 PPG. He is also sixth in steals with 1.0 a game.

BC’s Jerome Robinson had a night to remember in South Bend last week. He poured home 46 points in an Eagles loss to ND. It was a career-high for him, and it was the most points scored on the road by an ACC player ever in league play. Robinson was 15-of-23, 7-of-12 from behind the arc, and a perfect 9-for-9 from the charity stripe. The last Eagles player to notched 46 in a game was Tyrese Rice back on March 1, 2008.
Florida State’s head coach Leonard Hamilton is still one win shy of 500 for his coaching career. He will look to reach that milestone on February 14 at home VS Clemson.

Bryant Crawford of Wake Forest, recorded 23 points in a loss on the road at Miami last week. It is his sixth 20 point game of the season. He also passed out seven assists in that game, Crawford has now dished out 433 career assists, second-most in Deacon school history through his junior year.
Terrell Brown of Pittsburgh had a season-high eight rebounds in a loss last week at Clemson. He also blocked two shots in that game. Brown has blocked two or more shots in each of his past sevens contests.
That’s all for this week and we will be back next week with more from the ACC.
