Clemson, SC--Clemson guard Cliff Hammonds was named ACC CO-Rookie of the Week on Monday, the third time this year he has been honored by
the ACC. Hammonds has now tied the Clemson record for ACC Rookie of
the Week selections, joining Tree Rollins (1973-74), Skip Wise (1974-75), Grayson Marshall (1984-85) and Greg Buckner (1994-95) as three-time selections.

17 points, four assists and three rebounds against NC State and 11 points and six rebounds versus Miami.



North Carolina's Marvin Williams was the other Rookie of the Week selection. Williams had his first career "double-double" with
15 points and 10 rebounds in just 16 minutes of action in Saturday's
110-76 win at Virginia. The Bremerton, Wash., freshman was six-of-eight from the floor, including a career-high three-of-three from three-point range.
