NC State's Leslie. Duke's Williams named ACC players of week
Posted December 10, 2012
NC State’s CJ Leslie missed just three shots from the floor last week as he was named the ACC Player of the Week by the conference Monday.
Overshadowed by Richard Howell’s double-double in the Wolfpack’s win over Cleveland State Saturday, Leslie had 19 points in that game to lead all scorers. That performance came just four nights after Leslie posted a 16 and 13 double-double of his own to help NC State knock off Connecticut at Madison Square Garden.
Leslie shot 80 percent from the floor (12-for-15) for the week and averaged a team-best 17.5 points per game while chipping in 10.5 rebounds.
Georgia Tech’s Marcus Georges-Hunt was named the conference’s Rookie of the Week for the second time this season after averaging 14 points and 5.5 rebounds in two Yellow Jackets wins.
Duke sophomore Elizabeth Williams was named ACC Player of the Week on the women’s side. Williams averaged 20.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 5.5 blocks and 1.5 assists on the week in two Blue Devil wins.
Maryland’s Tierney Pfirman was selected ACC Rookie of the Week.
