That’s right, the ACC’s Player of the Week for the week of Christmas was … Rakeem Christmas. The Syracuse senior put up solid numbers, so it wasn’t just a coincidence.

Klay Thompson’s alma mater, Washington State, plays at Stanford on Jan. 2.

The Golden State Warriors host the Toronto Raptors that night.
