CONGRATS to our Freshman from Lincoln Nebraska!

Nebraska's Alexis Markowski was named the Tamika Catchings National Freshman of the Week by the United States Basketball Writers Association, when the USBWA announced its weekly award winners on Tuesday, Jan. 11.

"INDIANAPOLIS (USBWA) – For the season's sixth honorees for games ending Sunday, Jan. 9, the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Ann Meyers Drysdale Women's National Player of the Week goes to Colorado guard Jaylyn Sherrod, the organization's Tamika Catchings women's freshman player honor goes to Nebraska forward Alexis Markowski, and the USBWA women's team citation goes to Colorado.

Markowski, a 6-3 forward from Nebraska's campus town of Lincoln, averaged 17.0 points and 7.5 rebounds with a .684 shooting average in a pair of Top 25 games, helping the Huskers to upset then-No. 8 Michigan 79-58 at home in her first career start, scoring a career-high 20 points in what became the Huskers' first top 10 victory in eight seasons since 2014. She then followed on Sunday's nationally-televised narrow home loss against then-No. 22 Iowa with 14 points and eight rebounds. Her exploits earned her third Big Ten weekly freshman honor."
