Iowa freshman center Morgan Johnson was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Monday after recording her third double-double of the season against Purdue on Sunday.

The Platte City, Mo., native recorded 16 points, 11 rebounds, and two blocks. She also went 7-for-8 from the field and hit her first seven shots in the Hawkeyes’ 70-50 victory over the Boilermakers.
Johnson is averaging 7.7 points and 7.8 rebounds while starting every game for Iowa this season.

She has tallied 152 total rebounds as well, tying the mark for fourth-best in Iowa school history among freshmen.

In Big Ten, she is fifth in rebounding with 7.2 boards per game, fourth in field-goal percentage (48.6 percent), and third in block shots with 2.33 per game.

The conference honor is Johnson’s first and the fourth for Iowa this year. Freshman Jaime Printy has earned the accolade three times this season.
