Hurricanes guard Durand Scott has been named the ACC Player of the Week (Dec. 17) following his double-double against Charlotte last week.
With 16 points and 12 rebounds, Scott led Miami to a 77-46 win Friday night over previously undefeated Charlotte in the Hurricanes’ lone game of the week. The Bronx, N.Y., senior was 5-of-8 from the floor (.625), including 2-of-3 from 3-point range, handed out four assists, swiped four steals and blocked one shot as Miami upped its record to 6-1 with its fifth straight win.
On the year, Scott is averaging 15.3 points and 7.5 rebounds per game and is shooting .575 from the field and .722 from the free throw line. He has scored in double-digits in 12-straight games, dating back to last season.
In his career, Scott has played 103 games, starting 97, racking up 1,278 points, 475 rebounds, 331 assists, 122 steals and 16 blocks.
The honor is Scott’s first player of the week award since his freshman year when he was ACC Rookie of the Week four times.
Scott and the Canes face UCF in Orlando on Dec. 18, then travel to Honolulu for the Diamond Head Classic Dec. 22-25 before returning to the BankUnited Center for a Jan. 2 matchup with LaSalle.
