DURHAM, N.C. – Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III has been named the ACC Rookie of the Week, earning that award for the seventh time this season.

The newly-crowned ACC Player and Rookie of the Year, Bagley averaged 16.5 points and 11.0 rebounds in pair of games last week for the fifth-ranked Blue Devils (25-6, 13-5), who secured the No. 2-seed in the ACC Tournament with a 74-64 win over North Carolina on Saturday. Bagley keyed the comeback victory over UNC with his 19th double-double, scoring 21 points with 15 rebounds – 18 and 11 coming in the second half.

For the week, Bagley was a team-best 14-of-23 from the field (.609) and 4-of-7 from the free-throw line. The rookie pulled down a team-best 22 rebounds, had two assists, two blocks and one steal in 69 minutes.

Bagley's honor gives Duke its 17th ACC weekly award this season to set a conference record. The previous mark of 16 was set by the 2014-15 Blue Devils. Bagley has been the ACC Rookie of the Week seven times and Player of the Week twice.

Duke will play next in the ACC Tournament quarterfinals on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET in Brooklyn.
