DURHAM, N.C. - Duke junior Henrique Cunha earned ACC Men's Tennis Player of the Week honors for the second consecutive week Tuesday, sharing this week's accolade with North Carolina freshman Esben Hess-Olesen.

Cunha was named the ACC Player of the Week for the 10th time in his career after helping the No. 10 Blue Devils claim one of 16 bids to the ITA National Team Indoor Championships next month in Charlottesville, Va. The Jaú, Brazil, native improved to 3-0 on the season in dual match singles play while leading Duke (3-0) to a 6-0 victory over No. 47 VCU and a 4-0 defeat of No. 26 Washington during ITA Kick-Off Weekend in Durham.

Playing from the No. 1 singles position, seventh-ranked Cunha posted a 7-5, 6-1 win over VCU's Alexis Heugas on Saturday and dispatched No. 15 Kyle McMorrow of Washington, 6-3, 6-4, to lead the Blue Devils off the courts in Sunday's championship match. The victory over McMorrow gave Cunha eight wins against ranked opponents and brought his overall record in singles to 17-4 on the year.

Duke hosts No. 15 Illinois on Friday, Feb. 3 at 6 p.m. in the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center.
