Iowa men's basketball player Aaron White was named the Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week on Monday, according to a release.

White, a 6-8 forward from Strongsville, Ohio, earned the distinction thanks to a week in which he averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds in two Iowa wins.

He scored 9 points and pulled down 7 boards to help the Hawkeyes rally from a 10-point, second-half deficit to beat Minnesota, 63-59, on Feb. 1. He had all of his rebounds in the second half.

White turned in arguably the best game of his young career against Penn State on Feb. 4. He posted a line of 17 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks, 4 assists, and 2 steals in Iowa's 77-64 win.

This is the third Big Ten award this season for White, who also won Freshman of the Week on Nov. 14 and Dec. 26.

The Hawkeyes (13-11, 5-6 Big Ten) will travel to Evanston, Ill., on Thursday to take on Northwestern (14-8, 4-6) at 8 p.m.
