From U of L:

University of Louisville sophomore guard Terry Rozier has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Player of the Week in a vote by a select media panel.

Rozier scored a career-high 32 points at Western Kentucky in the Cardinals' only game of the week, adding five rebounds and three steals in the Cardinals' 76-67 win over the Hilltoppers. The Youngstown, Ohio, native scored 26 of his points in the second half, including 17 straight Louisville points over one 8 ½- minute stretch.

Over his last three games, Rozier has averaged 25.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and shot 50 percent from the field (25-of-50) with seven total steals. He leads the Cardinals in scoring, averaging 16.8 points per game.

Rozier's selection give the Cardinals three ACC Player of the Week picks this season, with UofL's Montrezl Harrell receiving the honor twice this year.

Duke freshman center Jahlil Okafor was selected the ACC Rookie of the Week after averaging 18.5 points, 14.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 blocks per game in wins over Elon and Connecticut.
