The Big Ten Conference announced Monday that Minnesota's Mikayla Bailey was named the Big Ten Women's Basketball Freshman of the Week. Bailey averaged 9.5 points, 3.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game, while shooting 60 percent from the floor, in leading the Golden Gophers to a pair of victories and the Subway Classic title over the weekend.
Bailey opened the weekend by tallying seven points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in Minnesota's opening-round victory vs. Ohio.
She followed that up with the best performance of her young career in the Subway Classic Championship against Maine. Bailey posted a career-high 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the floor, which included a 2-for-3 outing from three-point range, while adding three assists and a steal.
The Big Ten weekly honor is the first for Bailey in her career. The last Gopher to be named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week was Rachel Banham on Jan. 31, 2012.
