Boston College [1] freshman guard Joe Rahon was named ACC Rookie of the Week on Monday, the second time this season he’s been so honored.

Rahon scored a season-high 26 points in Saturday’s victory over Clemson, the most points scored by a freshman in the conference this season. He hit 9-of-12 shots, including 6-of-7 3-pointers.

The Eagles (10-11, 2-6) play at eighth-ranked Miami (17-3, 8-0) on Tuesday night. Miami sophomore Shane Larkin (son of former Major League Baseball [2] standout Barry Larkin) was named ACC Player of the Week on Monday.

In the Ivy League [3], Harvard sophomore Wesley Saunders was named co-Player of the Week after leading the Crimson to two victories over the weekend. Saunders, who shares the award with Princeton’s Ian Hummer, had 15 points and a career-high 11 assists in Friday’s 67-64 victory over Yale. One night later, he had 18 points while playing a career-high 48 minutes in an 89-82 double-overtime victory over Brown.

Saunders, who leads the league with 16.3 points per game, has been named Player of the Week four times this season.

Harvard (12-6, 4-0) plays at Cornell and Columbia this weekend.
