January 28, 2019 - 12:34 PM

DURHAM, N.C. - Rising Canadian basketball star RJ Barrett has been named ACC Freshman of the Week for the third time this season.

The forward from Mississauga, Ont., averaged 25 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in a pair of ACC wins last week, as the No. 2 Duke Blue Devils defeated Pitt and Georgia Tech.

Barrett has 16 20-point games this season, two shy of the Duke freshman record for a season held by Jabari Parker. He leads the ACC in scoring with an average of 23.9 points per game.

Barrett shared the award this week with North Carolina's Coby White.
