Ed Scott Named Co-Player of the Week
CLEMSON -- A pair of talented senior point guards, Maryland's Steve Blake and
Clemson' Edward Scott, have been named Atlantic Coast Conference
Co-Players of the Week. Blake, the school's all-time assists leader,
scored Maryland's final seven points, including four free throws in
the final 17.5 seconds, as the 16th-ranked Terrapins snapped a
two-game losing streak with a 74-72 victory at Florida State
Wednesday night. Blake finished 15 points, made a 3-pointer from the
corner to break a 67-67 tie with 2:36 left and then clinched the win
with his clutch free throws.
Scott averaged 23.0 points, 3.5 rebounds
and 2.5 assists in two Clemson games last week. Scott tallied 25
points, including 18 in the second half, in Saturday's 80-77 win over
North Carolina. Scott connected on nine-17 field goals, including 3-4
three-point goals in the two games.
North Carolina's Raymond Felton, who had 21 points, five assists and
two steals in Wednesday's 81-67 win at Virginia, has been tabbed as
the ACC Rookie of the Week. On the week, Felton hit on eight of 19
three-point field goal attempts and averaged 20.0 points, 6.0 assists
and 2.5 rebounds in two games.
