    I'm not sure that i'd give Brakefield PotW honors but i agree that he has been the most surprising Fr. so far, and most surprising player in a good way overall. We had heard at one point that he had a "no dribble" restriction put on him by K. As mentioned in the podcast, i was also surprised to see his multiple dribble penetration moves in this game, perhaps indicating that his no-dribble limit has been lifted. However, that no-dribble limit should be transferred to Wendell, whose attempts at driving from the 3pt line have been absolutely horrible all year so far. We need for Wendell to return to playing at least as well as he did last year to be an upper-echelon team, and so far he has played far, far below that level. Consequently, Duke has not played like an upper-echelon team this year (which is not entirely due to WM's play). A "vintage" Wendell game may have turned the MSU game in our favor, and may have kept he 'Nois within striking distance to give us a puncher's chance.

    Well, we only awarded it to him one week and it was in the wake of his 4-for-4 from 3 game... which is pretty darn impressive.

    Duke did not have any instant superstar freshman talent on this year's team... but that was fine because in Wendell and Matthew, we were getting a pair of very solid freshmen back for their soph season, something that really has not happened much lately at Duke. The preseason expectations for Duke were based on a bunch of solid, though not spectacular freshmen, combined with better than usual returnees. Sadly, Wendell's regression (and Joey Baker's struggles have also hurt) have caused the team to, thus far, fall short of expectations.

    But, there is good news! We have seen both Joey and Wendell play far better than this in the past. I am absolutely certain they are capable of doing significantly better than we have thus far seen... and I strongly suspect that "capable" will turn into actual on-court performance some time soon.

    So, I remain very optimistic about this team. I expect them to contend for the ACC title, though I won't be surprised to see them continue to struggle in early January before they really get humming.

    Interesting that Matthew Hurt has been lights out the last 3 games and he's only received 1 vote in the last 3 weeks. I know his defense is not great but he is our best player.

    GoDuke!

    That list did not include the latest pod for this week in which Hurt took POW from me and Donald... but not Sam (which led to me being utterly shocked at Sam's pick). See the full list below --

    DURHAM, N.C. – Duke sophomore Matthew Hurt has been named the ACC Player of the Week after scoring 22 points in back-to-back wins over conference opponents last week.

    The sophomore from Rochester, Minn., started with an 8-of-9 shooting performance, including 3-of-4 from three-point range, to lead all scorers in the Blue Devils' 84-60 win at Wake Forest on Wednesday night. He added four rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes, and Duke outscored the Demon Deacons by 26 points when Hurt was on the floor.

    Hurt carried his hot shooting into the matchup with No. 7 Virginia on Saturday night, as he scored nine points in the opening 6:18 of the first half. He went on to hit 8-of-13 from the field, 5-of-8 from beyond the arc and again grabbed four rebounds. Perhaps his biggest play of the night came on the game's final possession, when he got a piece of Kihei Clark's potential game-winning three at the buzzer to preserve a 66-65 Duke victory.

    Over Duke's three-game winning streak that includes a 69-53 decision at NC State on Feb. 13, Hurt is averaging 22.7 points while shooting 14-of-19 (.736) from the field and 24-of-32 (.750) from three-point range. He has recorded 10+ points in each of his last six halves of play, and his 109 total points in the month of February lead the ACC.

    On the season, Hurt leads the conference in three-point percentage (.469 – fifth in the NCAA) and most threes per game (2.5), while ranking second in scoring (18.5) and third in field goal percentage (.561). He is the nation's only player shooting better than 56 percent from the field, better than 46 percent from deep and making more than six field goals per game. Hurt and Gonzaga's Corey Kispert are the only players averaging 55/45/6.
