Gray leads Duke to season-opening win at No. 9 California
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Duke senior guard Chelsea Gray and Georgia Tech freshman Kaela Davis have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Basketball Player and Rookie of the Week, respectively, as announced Monday afternoon by the conference office and voted on by the Blue Ribbon Panel.
In her homecoming game at No. 9/9 California, Gray scored a game-high 22 points, had five assists, four rebounds and two steals to lead No. 2/2 Duke to a 70-58 road win over the Golden Bears on Nov. 10. In 31 minutes of action, the Manteca, Calif., native knocked down seven of 12 shots, including two 3-pointers. It was Gray’s first game after suffering a dislocated kneecap on Feb. 17, 2013. The victory marked Duke’s first win in a season opener against a top-10 team in program history.
The Player of the Week honor is Gray’s fourth in her career.
Davis started her career at Georgia Tech in fine fashion as she recorded back-to-back double-doubles in wins over Coppin State (79-57) on Nov. 8 and Western Carolina (87-47) on Nov. 10, while leading the Yellow Jackets in scoring in both games. The freshman from Suwannee, Ga., knocked down seven field goal attempts in each game, including a team-high five 3-pointers against Western Carolina.
