From Duke press release.

"In the first Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Player of the Week selection
of the 2008-09 campaign, Duke senior Chante Black earned the honor after guiding the eighth-ranked Blue Devils to a 2-0 start, including an impressive 77-68 win over 14th-ranked Oklahoma State.
For Black, the ACC Player of the Week accolade is the first of her career. The National Player of the Year and All-America candidate was ACC Rookie of the Week one time as a freshman in 2004-05.

In Duke's season opener against Oklahoma State, Black registered a career-high 28 points to go along with 10 rebounds in 36 minutes of action. The senior posted her 18th double-double of her career and her third straight double-double dating back to last season en route to leading the Blue Devils to a victory in Cameron Indoor Stadium. In the contest, Black hit 13-of-17 field goals and blocked four shots.

On Sunday against non-conference foe Maine, Black registered a game-high 16 points, seven rebounds, four blocks, two steals and two assists in only 20 minutes of action.

The Winston-Salem, N.C., native hit 6-of-10 field goals in the 98-31 victory.
For the week, Black hit 19-of-27 field goals for a 70.4 percentage. Black averaged 22.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.0 blocks, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steals in the two victories, while becoming the 24th player in Duke history to reach the 1,000-point mark with her first basket on Sunday against Maine."

Congrats indeed, I was surprised to read this is her first. I'm going to assume it's first of a few in her last year.
