After helping to lead Florida State to two wins last week, Seminole freshman Ganiyat Adeduntan has been named the ACC Rookie of the Week, league officials announced Monday.
Adeduntan averaged 13.3 points and 2.7 rebounds off of the bench in FSU’s three games last week. She rallied for 17 points in the win at Wake Forest, helping the Seminoles to their first win in Winston-Salem since the 1997-98 season, and led the team again with 16 points vs. UCF. The rookie guard shot 44 percent from the field, including 45 percent from three-point range, and had no turnovers in a total of 65 minutes played in the three games.
On the season, Adeduntan is averaging 7.7 points and 2.8 rebounds while playing 18.6 minutes per game. She is shooting a team-leading 41 percent from three-point range (12-29) and had scored in double figures in four games, while leading the Seminoles in scoring three times.
It’s the second ACC Rookie of the Week honor for Adeduntan and the third for Florida State this season. The 9-3 FSU women’s basketball team will host NC State (6-7, 1-1) on Wednesday, January 8th at 7 p.m. at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center.
