Swanigan Named B1G Freshman of the Week

It's the 3rd award for Biggie

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

This is the 3rd time that Caleb Swanigan has been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week. The three awards this season are the most in school history, tied with Vince Edwards' 3 Freshman of the Week honors last year.

In Tuesday's game against Nebraska, Swanigan had 10 points (5/9 FGs), 4 rebounds, and 2 assists, but it was his performance against Wisconsin last night that earned him the award. There, Swanigan had a career high 27 points, with 8 rebounds and an assist in 27 minutes of playing time. He was 6 of 7 from the field and made 14 free throws out of 17 attempts, pushing the Badgers into foul trouble in the 2nd half.
