— Duke’s Jabari Parker was named ACC Rookie of the Week for the fourth time this season after averaging 22.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in leading the Blue Devils to wins over Gardner-Webb and No. 22 UCLA.

The 6-foot-8 freshman out of Chicago shot 56.0 percent (14-of-25) from the field, including 5-of-10 from three-point range, while making all 11 free throws as the No. 9 Blue Devils improved to 9-2 on the year.

In a Dec. 16 win over Gardner-Webb, Parker tallied 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field and 6-of-6 from the free throw line. He also added six rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes of action. Parker capped off the week with an impressive all-around performance in an 80-63 win over UCLA. He recorded his ninth 20-point game and his third double-double of the season, finishing with a game-high 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. Parker went 7-of-13 from the floor, including 4-of-8 from three-point range, and 5-of-5 from the foul line in the win.

On the year, Parker ranks among the ACC leaders in scoring (22.1 ppg. – 2nd), rebounds (7.8 rpg. – 4th), field goal percentage (.550 – 3rd) and defensive rebounds (6.0 drpg. – 4th).

Duke returns to action Dec. 28 with a home contest against Eastern Michigan where they will play at a top-10 ranked team for the 223rd consecutive time.
