COLUMBUS, Ohio – Behind a pair of double-doubles and helping lead the Buckeyes to two wins, Dorka Juhász has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.

For the week, the Pecs, Hungary native averaged 17.5 points and 14.5 rebounds with three steals and a pair of blocks. That led the Buckeyes to wins over North Carolina and Cincinnati and they are now 3-2 on the season.

Juhász notched season-highs of 18 points and 16 rebounds and also added a block in the Buckeyes ACC/Big Ten Challenge win over North Carolina. Her performance helped the Buckeyes snap a six-game losing streak in the challenge.

Against Cincinnati, Juhász again notched game-highs of 17 points and 13 rebounds to go along with three steals.
