Amanda Zahui B. earned her second Big Ten Player and Freshman of the Week honors.

Dec. 9, 2013

The Big Ten Conference announced Monday that University of Minnesota redshirt freshman center Amanda Zahui B. was named the Big Ten Women's Basketball Player and Freshman of the Week for the second time this season after averaging 21.5 points on .762 shooting, 9.5 rebounds and 3.5 blocks in victories over Miami and North Dakota.

Zahui connected on all seven of her attempts from the field in a win over the Hurricanes, totaling 18 points, seven boards and three blocks in the seven-point victory, before accounting for more than half of the Gophers' points in the come-from-behind win over North Dakota Sunday. She finished with 25 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks to post her fifth double-double of the year in the 46-44 win.

The center currently leads the Big Ten in rebounds (11.2) and blocked shots (2.9), while ranking in the top-10 in field goal percentage (.524). She is one of only four players in the nation to record a triple-double this season and entered the week ranked 13th in the NCAA in rebounds, 20th in blocked shots and 21st in double-doubles.

Zahui was also named the league's player and freshman of the week on Nov. 25.
