COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State forward Brice Sensabaugh has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the fourth time this season.
Sensabaugh is coming off a season-high 27 points in the Buckeyes’ win over Iowa on Saturday.
In the pair of games last week, Sensabaugh averaged 22.5 points while shooting 57% from the floor and 58% from long range.
He recorded his third-consecutive double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds at Nebraska last Wednesday.
Sensabaugh was 10-of-12 shooting, including 4-of-5 from three-point range against the Hawkeyes.
The Orlando native became the first Buckeye freshman to lead the team in scoring in 10 consecutive games.
On the season, Sensabaugh is averaging 17.5 points per game, which is second-best nationally among freshman.
With his fourth Freshman of the Week honors, Sensabaugh becomes the first Ohio State player to do that since D’Angelo Russell did it seven times in the 2014-15 season. The only other Buckeye to earn Freshman of the Week honors more than Russell was Jared Sullinger.
The Buckeyes will be on the road for a pair of games this week beginning with a game at Illinois on Tuesday night.
