Not even his worst game of the season kept J.J. Redick from setting another record for No. 1 Duke.
Redick's 11 points were enough to set the ACC career scoring record and Shelden Williams had 23 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Blue Devils to a 74-66 win over Temple on Saturday.
J.J. Redick, whose 3-point shooting led Duke to a No. 1 ranking for most of the season, was selected the national player of the year by the Associated Press on Friday.
The senior guard was second in the nation in scoring this season, capping his career as the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-time leading scorer and Division I's most prolific 3-point shooter.
Redick is the record sixth Duke player to win the award, with five winners coming since 1992. The award was first presented in 1961.
A repeat first-team All-America, Redick received 43 votes from the 72-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Adam Morrison of Gonzaga, who beat Redick in a season-long, bi-coastal scoring race, got the other 29 votes in the balloting conducted before the NCAA Tournament.
