Notre Dame G Blake Wesley Named ACC Freshman of the Week

January 10, 2022

Notre Dame guard Blake Wesley has been named ACC Freshman of the Week once again. 

The 6-foot-5, 185-pounder averaged 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 2.0 assists in Notre Dame's wins over North Carolina and Georgia Tech. 

Notre Dame is on a five-game winning streak and Wesley has been a significant reason behind the recent run. The South Bend native has averaged 16.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists during the five wins. 

To take it a step further, Wesley has scored in double figures in 11 straight games and 12 of Notre Dame's 14 games this season. 

Wesley ranks second in the ACC at 14.3 ppg in true freshmen scoring and is No. 5 in the country among major conference freshmen. 

It's the third time Notre Dame has won ACC Rookie of the Week. Wesley won the award in December and Steve Vasturia earned the honor in January of 2014.
