(Neb.)- Brown Captures B1G Freshman Of The Week Honors
Lincoln - Nebraska's Leigha Brown was named the Big Ten Women's Basketball Freshman of the Week when the conference announced its weekly honors on Monday.
Brown put together the best two performances of her young career in back-to-back Big Ten road games for the Huskers last week. She averaged 19.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals off the bench for the Big Red.
The 6-1 guard/forward, who leads all Big Ten freshmen in scoring in conference contests at 16.7 points per game, scored a then-career-high 19 points in Nebraska's 78-69 road win at defending Big Ten champion Ohio State on New Year's Eve. She was even better the next time out at No. 19 Iowa, putting up a career-high 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field, while connecting on 3-of-4 three-point attempts.
On the season, Brown is Nebraska's second-leading scorer at 10.4 points per game, trailing only fellow freshman Sam Haiby. Brown ranks seventh among all Big Ten freshman in scoring on the season.
