On Monday, the ACC announced that Pitt guard Carlton “Bub” Carrington was named the ACC Rookie of the Week for the first week of the season.

Carrington exploded onto the college basketball scene in Pitt’s season opener, dropping the first triple double for Pitt since 1998. He became just the second player in ACC history to drop a triple double in his first game. In that win over NC A&T, Carrington finished with 18 points, 12 rebounds, and ten assists, earning the prestigious triple double on his assist to Guillermo Diaz-Graham for a three.


Carrington followed up his stellar performance with another strong game in Pitt’s second win of the season. The Panthers cruised by Binghamton in another home victory, as Carrington went for 18 points, three rebounds, and four assists.

Through two games, he is shooting 57% from the field and 54% from three-point range for the Panthers. The rookie is a 6-foot-5 guard out of St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, where he cemented himself as a four-star prospect.

Carrington and the Panthers will host Florida Gulf Coast on Monday night at 7 p.m. at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, PA. That game will be televised on ACC Network Extra. Check out our full game preview below for more on the matchup against the Eagles.
