COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State freshman guard Madison Green had quite the week in the leading the Buckeyes to a pair of victories including a win at No. 20 Indiana on Sunday. She was recognized for her performance by being named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
Greene averaged 23.5 points and 5.0 assists while shooting 68.4 percent including 40.0 percent from long range in the two games. She was also 19-of-25 from the free throw line. Entering the week, Greene was averaging just 6.8 points per game.
The Pickerington, Ohio native started the week with a career-high 25 points and a career-high seven assists in the runaway 99-76 win vs. Minnesota. She then followed that by leading the team to a comeback win at No. 20 Indiana on Sunday with 22 points and three assists. Greene scored 14 points on 4-of-4 shooting, 2-of-2 from deep and 4-of-4 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter vs. the Hoosiers. That effort helped erase a 10-point deficit in the final 8:00 of the game.
What may be even more remarkable is that as the team’s point guard, Greene averaged a career-high 35 minutes in the two games and committed just one turnover.
Greene and the Buckeyes are currently riding a season-high five-game win streak and will look to keep it going this Wednesday when they host Nebraska at 7 p.m. at Value City Arena.
