DURHAM, N.C. – For the third time this season, Duke Blue Devils freshman Azurá Stevens was selected the ACC Rookie of the Week, following a vote of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Monday.

Stevens averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds and two steals in contests on the road at fourth-ranked Notre Dame and N.C. State.

The six-foot-five-inch rookie totaled double-doubles in both games and has registered a career-best three straight contests with a double-double.

She totaled 13 points and 10 rebounds against the Fighting Irish, followed by 13 points and 10 rebounds at N.C. State on Sunday.

For the week, she hit 48 percent of her field goals.

With her 216 rebounds, Stevens ranks fourth on the Duke single-season freshman rebound list.

Her eight double-doubles on the season leads all ACC freshman and also ranks tied for third on Duke’s freshman record charts.

Stevens and Duke will end a four-game road swing at Georgia Tech on Thursday.
