Duke’s Kyle Filipowski was named Rookie of the Week for the first four weeks of the college basketball season but Mintz has taken home three of the last four. The only other ACC freshman to be named to Rookie of the Week was Florida State’s Cam Corhen on Dec. 27.
Mintz is eleventh in the conference in points per game with 15.8 and ninth in the conference in assists per game with 4.2. He leads the ACC in steals with 2.3 per game.
ACC weekly honors are determined by a vote of a 15-member media panel and announced on Mondays throughout the regular season.
