At this point each team has played at least one game and so far all is well. The ACC is a combined 16-0 as each team won its first game. While every team in the league is 1-0 on the young season Duke and Clemson are already 3-0. A big reason for the success of these two teams are Duke forward Kyle Singler and Clemson forward Trevor Booker, who were named Co-ACC players of the Week. Singler averaged 19 and 7 in wins over Presbyterian, Georgia Southern, and Rhode Island (11/16). Booker, who earned MVP honors at the Charleston Classic, put in averaged 13 points, 13 boards, and a ridiculous 3 blocks per game in a 3 game stretch (Hofstra, TCU, and Temple). On a side note, Virginia's freshman guard Sylven Landesberg put up 28 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists in a win over VMI yesterday on his way to being named ACC Rookie of the Week.
