IRVING, Texas – Hallie Christofferson and Seanna Johnson picked up the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player and Co-Freshman of the Week honors, the league announced Monday. This was the fourth honor for Johnson and the second for Christofferson this season.
Christofferson tallied 29 points, eight rebounds and no turnovers leading the Cyclones to a win over Kansas. She shot 42.8 percent from the field, 66 percent from long range and 90 percent from the charity stripe as the game’s top scorer.
Johnson on the other hand, totaled 14 points and eight rebounds in Iowa State’s 72-69 win over Kansas, while shooting 50 percent from the field. The freshman’s 14-point performance was her 12th double-digit scoring game of the season.
Johnson’s honor marks the seventh Freshman of the Week honor for Iowa State this season, as fellow freshman Jadda Buckley earned three weekly honors. The Cyclones have captured a league-best seven Freshman of the Week honors so far this season.
The seven Newcomer of the Week honors also breaks the school record of six, which was set in 1998 when the Cyclones grabbed six Newcomer of the Week honors, with Cyclone greats Stacy Frese and Megan Taylor nabbing six between the two.
Christofferson, Johnson and the rest of the Cyclones will take the court on Wednesday at 7 p.m. to take on No. 6 Baylor in Waco, Texas.
