— For the second time this season, Duke forward Mason Plumlee was named ACC Player of the Week the league announced Monday.

Plumlee averaged 24.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks as Duke took down N.C. State 98-85 at home and Boston College 62-61 on the road. Plumlee scored 30 points on Thursday against the Wolfpack marking the second 30-point game of the season for the 6-foot-11 forward. He added nine rebounds and two blocks. Against Boston College on Sunday, Plumlee recorded his 13th double-double of the season as he scored 19 points with 11 rebounds.

Plumlee is averaging 18.2 points, 10.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.7 blocks per game this season. He is shooting 61.0 percent from the field and is one of only 15 players in the country averaging a double-double.

Plumlee took 26 foul shots in the two-game span, hitting 19 for a .731 shooting percentage from the line. He set season highs in both free throws made (12) and attempted (16) against N.C. State and followed by shooting 7-of-10 from the line against Boston College. Against the Eagles, Plumlee grabbed offensive rebounds on Duke’s final two possessions, was fouled on both and then hit three of his final four foul shots to help Duke erase a 61-59 deficit.

Virginia’s Justin Anderson was named the ACC Rookie of the Week after averaging 15.5 points, 5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals in wins over Clemson and Maryland. Anderson has scored in double figures in five of the last six games

Duke will play host to North Wednesday at 9 p.m. That game can be seen live on WRAL-TV.

    ...These type of posts are why no one takes you seriously. Also a tribute to why you should not drink and post at the same time.

    Congrats to Plumlee. He's stepped up big time and has been clutch when Duke needed him.

    If UNC's down 30, do you think Roy will leave his players on the court or have someone tossed out for heckling his players?

    24.5 in two games is hard to beat. Plumlee earned this honor. Duke won last night against a tough young team. BC is going to a solid team next year.

    Congrats to the big boy. Looking forward to the Duke/UNC game this week. Can the Heels win? Sure they can! Its a rivalry game. The question that everyone is wanting answered is.... Which Duke player pulls a Busch League stunt this year? Maybe the Player of the Week could get in on this action. A Duke player isn't concreted into Legendom until he provides a cheap shot in a Duke/Carolina game. Ever seen the bumper sticker. "Nice Girls are Never Remembered".

    cue the whiners. Well, as soon as they stop whining about Duke being ranked higher than Miami and Quinn Cook's no calls last night that is.
