Ryan Kelly wins ACC Player of the Week

The White Raven took flight on Saturday in historic fashion, and now has been honored for his performance with his second ACC Player of the Week award.

Kelly had missed 13 straight games with a foot injury that he originally suffered back on January 8 against Clemson before returning unexpectedly to stun No. 5 Miami last weekend. With the Crazies out in full force to see the senior forward's return, Kelly poured in a career-high 36 points on 10-for-14 shooting—7-of-9 from beyond the arc.

The two-time ACC Player of the Week is averaging 14.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game this season while providing Duke with a strong defensive presence in the post.
