CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia freshman guard Justin Anderson (Montross, Va.) was named ACC Rookie of the Week Monday.

Anderson averaged 15.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals as Virginia (17-6, 7-3 ACC) claimed a pair of key ACC wins over Clemson and Maryland.

Anderson tallied 14 points, three steals, two assists and one blocked shot in Thursday's 78-41 win over Clemson. Three days later, Anderson tallied a career-high 17 points and tied a career-best with nine rebounds in Sunday's 80-69 road win at Maryland.

Anderson has scored in double figures in five of the last six games and over that span is averaging 11.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists and is shooting 25-of-49 (.510) from the floor and 16-of-18 (.889) from the free throw line.

Virginia hosts Virginia Tech on Tuesday, Feb. 12. Tipoff at John Paul Jones Arena is set for 7 p.m.
