The Nebraska Cornhuskers freshman Bryce McGowens picked up his seventh Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors this season, and it marks his fourth-consecutive week in a row earning the honor. Last week’s sixth of the season gave him sole possession of most honors on the season ahead of Michigan State’s Max Christie.

McGowens posted a game-high 25 points against Maryland last Friday night, his fourth performance of 25+ points this season. He went 14-for-15 from the free throw line in the matchup as well as three rebounds and a steal. McGowens moved into second place on UNL’s freshman scoring list and 10th place on the Huskers’ freshman rebound charts.
McGowens now holds the tie for second most all-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors. Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger holds the all-time lead with 12. Freshman of the Week honors have been awarded by the Big Ten since the 2010-11 season.
Nebraska returns to action tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. (8 EST) in a road matchup at Northwestern. The game will broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
