Tatum Named ACC Freshman of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Duke swingman Jayson Tatum was recognized for his outstanding play last week with his second ACC Freshman of the Week honor.

The St. Louis native averaged 14.0 points, 3.5 assists and team highs of 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks as Duke ran its winning streak to five games with home wins over rivals No. 8 North Carolina and Clemson.

The talented forward ranks second among ACC freshman in points (15.6) and rebounds (7.0) and is on track to become just the fifth freshman under Mike Krzyzewski to average those numbers for an entire season.
