DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke's Jabari Parker has been named ACC Freshman of the Year by the ACC coaches and Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA), as announced today by the league office. Parker becomes the seventh Duke freshman to earn league FOTY accolades.

Parker, who was named the ACC Rookie of the Week a record-tying 10 times during the regular season, ranks second in the ACC in scoring at 19.2 points per game and 20-point games (16), while leading the conference in rebounds (9.0 rpg.) and double-doubles (14). He has recorded a double-double in six straight games and will take a 15-game double-figure scoring streak into this week’s ACC Tournament.

On the ACSMA ballots, Parker received 72 of a possible 77 votes to join Jim Spanarkel (1976), Mike Gminski (1977), Gene Banks (1978), Chris Duhon (2001), Kyle Singler (2008) and Austin Rivers (2012) as Duke ACC Freshman of the Year honorees.

Parker also finished second in the ACC Player of the Year voting from the ACC coaches and ACSMA. T.J. Warren (NC State) was awarded conference player of the year honors, while Virginia’s Tony Bennett received ACC Coach of the Year honors and Clemson’s K.J. McDaniels was voted the ACC Defensive Player of the Year.
