Curry named ACC player of the week

Posted December 31, 2012

— Duke’s Seth Curry has been named the ACC Player of the Week while Maryland’s Charles Mitchell has been selected the conference’s Rookie of the Week.

Curry scored a career-high 31 points in top-ranked Duke’s 90-77 win over Santa Clara on Saturday at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Charlotte, N.C., senior went 12-of-18 from the field, including 4-of-7 from three-point range, and 3-of-4 from the foul line in recording his first 30+ point game as a Blue Devil. He also added three rebounds and an assist in 36 minutes of action. Curry scored 18 second half points, including 12 points during a 21-3 Blue Devil run early in the half that turned a four-point deficit into a 62-48 lead with 9:13 remaining.

Mitchell led Maryland to its 11th straight victory by coming off the bench and setting season highs with 19 points and 14 rebounds in a 79-50 win over Delaware State Saturday afternoon. The Marietta, Ga., freshman connected on 8-of-12 field goals, while seven of his 14 boards were on the offensive end. Mitchell, who ranks first among ACC freshmen with 6.9 rebounds per game, recorded a double-double for the third time this season.

    There must be some proud Duke fans not to write it firstly. I watched Curry play the best game of his life. He isn't as good as his brother, but he made a solid statement in this game. Erick Green from VT is still the top scorer in the Country on a weak team.
