RELEASE: Dennis Parker, Jr. Named ACC Rookie of the Week

November 27, 2023

CHARLOTTE, NC – NC State men’s basketball freshman guard Dennis Parker, Jr. was voted the Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Week for his efforts last week in the Vegas Showdown.
ACC men’s basketball weekly honors are determined by a vote of a 15-member media panel and announced on Mondays throughout the regular season.

Parker, Jr., finished one rebound shy of a double-double in the Pack’s win over Vanderbilt on Thanksgiving evening. The Richmond, Va., native scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting and added nine rebounds. He also had a team-high two blocks in the win and passed out two assists.

On Friday evening, Parker was limited by foul trouble but still scored six points and passed out two assists and recorded two steals in 19 minutes of action.

For the season, Parker is averaging 8.2 points on 53.8 percent shooting and 4.0 rebounds per game. He is tied for the team lead with four blocks and is second on the team with eight steals.
