No. 9 Maryland women’s basketball freshman guard Ashley Owusu continues to receive high praise for her early play this season, being named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week Monday.
Coming after a week in which she posted a line of 13.5/6.5/7.5 in two blowouts of at least 30 points for the Terps, it marks the second consecutive week that Owusu has earned conference freshman of the week honors.
In Maryland’s 107-55 win over Quinnipiac on Sunday, the freshman guard tallied a team-high 19 points on 8-for-12 shooting while adding six assists and six boards.
Joining Owusu in the weekly Big Ten honors as well is sophomore forward Shakira Austin, who was named to the Big Ten Player of the Week Honor Roll.
It’s the seventh weekly honor of Austin’s career, doing so this week after averaging 15.5 points and 7.5 rebounds over the two Terp victories. She shot 80 percent from the field over those two contests, while wreaking havoc defensively with 3.5 steals and 2.5 blocks per game.
