In the 82-75 win over the Yellow Jackets, Hansbrough made 13-of-17 from the floor and 14-of-19 from the free throw line and pulled down 10 rebounds. Four days later Hansbrough had 17 points, six rebounds and one steal in an 83-72 win at Wake Forest. Hansbrough has scored 14 or more points in 18 straight games and leads all ACC freshmen in scoring (18.9) and rebounds (7.7).
Hansbrough's eight ACC Rookie-of-the-Week honors are a Carolina record, eclipsing the six honors earned by Sam Perkins in 1980-81. The eight awards are second in ACC history behind Kenny Anderson's 10 selections in 1989-90.
