Duke’s Chelsea Gray has been named the ACC’s women’s basketball rookie of the week after double-figure performances in her first three starts.
Perhaps the most important game for Gray was seven days ago, when she had 11 points and six rebounds as the then- No. 5 Blue Devils held off No. 7 Texas A&M 61-58 in the Jimmy V Classic.
Gray added 15 points and a season-high five steals in a rout of visiting Albany on Thursday night, and then had 10 points with season highs of eight points and seven assists in a 73-45 romp at previously unbeaten Oklahoma State on Sunday.
Gray is averaging 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.3 steals.
