Duke junior claims the award for second time this season

Duke's J.J. Redick was named the ACC Player of the Week on Monday after averaging 29.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists in two games against ranked opponents last week. Duke dropped a 92-89 decision to No. 7 Wake Forest on Wednesday before responding with an 82-65 win over No. 25 Georgia Tech Saturday afternoon.

In Wednesday's 92-89 loss at Wake Forest, Redick tallied a season-high 33 points on a career-best 10 made field goals, including five three-pointers. The Roanoke, Va., native scored 22 points in the second half, including 11 in the final 2:13 of the contest. Redick, who played all 40 minutes against the Demon Deacons, also had three rebounds and a team-high five assists.

Three days later, Redick led the Blue Devils to a win over Georgia Tech, scoring a game-high 26 points to go along with four rebounds and three assists. Redick knocked down six three-pointers against the Yellow Jackets to move into third place at Duke with 270 career three-point field goals.

For the season, Redick is leading the ACC in scoring (22.8 rpg.), free throw percentage (.932) and three-point field goals made (3.84 pg.). The junior guard also ranks sixth in three-point field goal percentage (.424) and 15th in field goal percentage (.425).

In nine ACC contests, Redick is averaging 24.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, while shooting 41-of-95 (.432) from three-point distance and 51-of-55 (.927) from the free throw line. Redick and the rest of the Blue Devils return to action on Wednesday, Feb. 9 with a 9:00 p.m. home contest against No. 2 North Carolina.
