GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Wake Forest junior forward Jake LaRavia has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week. 

ACC men’s basketball weekly honors are determined by a vote of a 15-member media panel and announced on Mondays throughout the regular season.

LaRavia averaged 22.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists in wins over Georgia Tech (80-64) and North Carolina (98-76). 

The Indianapolis native put up 31 points and 10 rebounds Saturday against UNC, becoming just the fourth player over the past 10 years (and first non-Duke player) to post 30 points and 10 rebounds versus the Tar Heels (Jabari Parker, RJ Barrett, and Zion Williamson). 

The 22-point victory was Wake’s largest margin of victory against UNC since the 2001-02 season. On Wednesday at Georgia Tech, LaRavia posted 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting while dishing out a career-high nine assists.
