Nebraska guard Sam Haiby won her first Big Ten freshman of the week honor on Monday.

Haiby, a reserve for the Huskers, averaged 15 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in an 84-64 win over Purdue and an 82-78 loss to Indiana. She hit 66.7 percent of her field goals (10 for 15) and was 3 for 4 on 3-pointers.

Haiby shared the award this week with Michigan’s Naz Hillmon, who has received that honor four times this season.
