CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman Olivier Hanlan has been voted the Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Week after averaging 17.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 3.5 steals in his first two ACC road games.

Hanlan had a monster game at Virginia Tech as he recorded 17 points, eight rebounds, five steals and four assists in the 86-75 win. He then added 18 points, five rebounds and four assists at Wake Forest and was a perfect 7-for-7 from the foul line.

The Aylmer, Quebec product has scored in double figures in eight straight games and 11 of the last 12. He leads ACC freshman and is 15th overall in scoring (13.4).

Hanlan and the Eagles host Miami on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in Conte Forum.
