Pitt swingman Lamar Patterson was named ACC player of the week after averaging 21.7 points in three Panthers' victories last week.

Patterson, a 6-foot-5 fifth-year senior from Lancaster, scored career highs in back-to-back games in winning MVP honors in the Legends Classic in Brooklyn.

He had 23 points against Texas Tech and 24 against Stanford, then had 18 points, eight rebounds, six assists and five steals against Duquesne in the City Game.

Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis was named ACC rookie of the week.
