GREENSBORO, N.C. - Duke freshman point guard Quinn Cook was named the ACC Rookie of the Week for the second time after helping the Blue Devils rout Western Michigan 110-70 and Penn 85-55 last week.
Cook had his best two games of the season over the weekend, averaging 11.0 points, 8.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game as Duke improved to 12-1 on the season. The 6-0 native of Bowie, Md. (Oak Hill Academy [Va.]), amassed 17 assists without committing a turnover during the victories and is currently on a streak of 19 consecutive assists since his last turnover.
Against Western Michigan on Friday, Cook scored a career-high 16 points, dished out eight assists and pulled in a pair of steals. He followed up that performance with nine assists and zero turnovers against Penn to tie former Blue Devil Kyrie Irving's freshman record for the most assists in a game without committing a turnover.
Cook has appeared in every game this season and leads the team with a 4.83:1 assist-to-turnover ratio. He averages 5.2 points per game while shooting 47.6 percent from the floor and 84.0 percent from the free throw line.
Up next for Cook and the Blue Devils is a road game at Temple on Wednesday, Jan. 4, and the ACC opener at Georgia Tech on Saturday, Jan. 7.
