For the third time this season and fourth time in his career, the Big Donut has been recognized by the ACC as their Player of the Week. Allen scored 17 points and snagged 8 rebounds against wake, and following that up with 18 points and 15 rebounds in the Hokies’ win over #1 duke. His passing has also been superb of late, and he dished out 2 assists in each contest.
The wake game snapped Allen’s streak of 7 straight double-doubles, but he quickly got back on track in that category against duke.
This marks the fifth time a Hokie has won the award this season. Erick Green and Malcolm Delaney won it the other two times. For Jeff, all three have been since the turn of the calendar year, and he’s won it twice in the last month.
Jeff has to be an ACC First Teamer now. Player of the Week three times, 11th in scoring, and 2nd in rebounding? That’s All-ACC, baby.
