Jones, Carey Honored By ACC

After Duke’s big week last week, the ACC selected Tre Jones as Player of the Week and Vernon Carey as Freshman of the Week.

Both had huge games at Michigan State where Jones, who was outplayed by Cassius Winston last spring in the NCAA Tournament, got some payback. He limited Winston to 4-14 while racking up 20 points and 12 assists and also nabbing three steals.

Against Virginia Tech, Jones had 15 points, six boards and four assists and helped harass Hokies star Landers Noelly into a seven-point nine rebound performance.

Against Michigan State, Carey was surprisingly dominant, scoring 26 points, grabbing 11 boards and blocking three shots.
