North Carolina junior wing Reggie Bullock was named the ACC’s Player of the Week on Monday after scoring a career high 24 points during the Tar Heels’ win over Maryland.
Twenty-one of those points came in the first half, when he out-scored the Terps 21-20 all by himself.
Bullock now is averaging 14.1 points and 5.8 rebounds this season, and coach Roy Williams has said he’s been the most consistent player on the team, which is now 2-2 in ACC play.
“I do think that he has ... day-in and day-out, done the best job for us, whether it's games or practice, either one," Williams said during Monday's ACC conference call. "And I want him to get even better at that. But to me, the biggest factor is he's just been through it more often than the other guys. He's been there and played big-time games. To win a Sweet 16 game, to go to an Elite Eight, he's played in a conference championship game. So most of those other guys haven't been in those roles as very important players, or even been in that game at all.”
Boston College’s Olivier Hanlan was named the league’s Rookie of the Week for the second straight week.
