Allen named ACC Player of the Week


Virginia Tech’s Jeff Allen has been selected as the ACC Player of the Week.

In earning the Player of the Week award for the third time this season and fourth time in his career, Allen averaged 17.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists as the Hokies posted key ACC wins over Wake Forest and Duke. In Tuesday’s 76-62 win at Wake Forest, the Washington, D.C., native had 17 points and eight rebounds in 29 minutes of action.

Four nights later, Allen posted his eighth double-double in the last nine games, and 15th overall on the year, finishing with 18 points and 15 rebounds in a 64-60 win over the top-ranked Blue Devils.
