Maryland women’s basketball guard Bri McDaniel was named the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Freshman of the Week, it was announced Tuesday.
McDaniel has been a revelation for the Terps this season, becoming a regular in the rotation over the last month. The Chicago, Illinois native is coming off a week in which she averaged 11 points, three steals and over two rebounds per game.
In Maryland’s 79-54 win at Northwestern, McDaniel finished with a career-high 14 points and four steals.
“Every single night she’s playing hard ... she’s a special player,” head coach Brenda Frese said after the game.
She followed that up with eight points and two steals off the bench in the Terps’ 82-71 victory against Illinois on Sunday. McDaniel and the Terps are scheduled to take on Michigan State on Saturday at 3 p.m.
