Sensabaugh Named Big Ten Freshman Of The Week For Fourth Time This Season

Ohio State forward Brice Sensabaugh was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the fourth time this season on Monday.

Sensabaugh averaged 22.5 points during the Buckeyes’ two-game stretch, while helping Ohio State snap its five-game losing streak against Iowa with a career-best 27 points on Saturday. Sensabaugh shot the ball at an efficient rate during the week, connecting on 57.1 percent of attempts — including a 58.3 mark from beyond the arc.

On the season, Sensabaugh leads the Buckeyes with 17.5 points per game, which ranks second among freshmen nationally — trailing only Alabama forward Brandon Miller.

Sensabaugh is the first Buckeye since D’Angelo Russell — who earned seven Big Ten Freshman of the Week nods in his one season with Ohio State — to garner at least four Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors. Sensabaugh previously earned three-consecutive nods during a stretch that spanned from Dec. 19-Jan. 3.
