DURHAM, N.C. - Redshirt sophomore Brandon Gambucci was named the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Wrestler of the Week for the second time in his Blue Devil career, as announced Tuesday by the conference office. Wrestling at 133 pounds, Gambucci recorded three dual match wins and played a key role in the team's first conference win of the season Feb. 20 at N.C. State.

In the Blue Devils' final ACC dual, Gambucci upended NC State's Sam Speno, ranked 24th in the latest NCAA Coaches' Panel rankings by a 5-0 score. First-year head coach Glen Lanham picked up his first conference victory and just the program's third win over the Wolfpack since 1975.

Gambucci collected his 16th and 17th wins of the season this past weekend at the NWCA Duals Festival in Philadelphia, Pa. The Mansfield, Ohio native cruised past Franklin & Marshall's Robert Ruiz in a 20-6 major decision and had little trouble versus Cody Wheeler of Lock Haven with a 9-2 decision. Gambucci, ranked 27th in the NCAA coaches rankings, is 17-4 overall this season and 12-3 in duals for the Blue Devils.

Duke returns to the mats again at ACC Championships, March 9 in College Park, Md.
