With just one game on the week, Ohio State still had a pair of star performers, each of which earned conference honors.

After a 104-74 victory over Sacramento State, sophomore forward Dorka Juhasz earned Big Ten Player of the Week for a career performance.

In the game, Juhasz used her superior size to match career highs in four categories: points (27), rebounds (16), blocks (three) and assists (three). She also shot 11 for 17 in her first double-double of the season.

The honor was the first Big Ten Player of the Week honor of her career. She was named as Big Ten Freshman of the Week twice last season.

Freshman guard Jacy Sheldon was also recognized for her performance against Sacramento State, earning her first ever Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor.

Sheldon shot an impressive 9 of 11 from the floor for a career-high 23 points, benefitting from earning her second career collegiate start due to the suspensions of Kierstan Bell, Janai Crooms and Kaelynn Satterfield.

The first-year guard becomes the second Ohio State member to win the honor this month, with Bell earning it after a pair of strong performances against Louisville and Radford.

This is the fifth time Ohio State has swept the pair of awards, most recently occurring in 2014, when Kelsey Mitchell won both awards two separate times that season.
