Though the college basketball season is only weeks old, Marcus Georges-Hunt has already claimed multiple awards.

On Monday, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets freshman Georges-Hunt was named the ACC Rookie of the Week -- for the second time this season.

Georgia Tech went 2-0 last week, defeating the Georgia Bulldogs and North Carolina-Wilmington Seahawks. Georges-Hunt's play was a major factor in Georgia Tech's two wins. Against Georgia, Georges-Hunt scored 18 points, while grabbing six rebounds. In Georgia Tech's win over UNC-Wilmington, Georges-Hunt scored 10 points, and added five rebounds and two assists.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution notes that Georges-Hunt is the first Georgia Tech player to win the ACC Freshman of the Week multiple times in a season since Derrick Favors won the award four times during the 2009-10 season.

Georgia Tech's next game isn't until Dec. 17, so Georges-Hunt will have to wait at least a week before he claims the ACC Rookie of the Week award -- again.
