Blockton Named BIG EAST Freshman of the Week
Dec. 7, 2015
MILWAUKEE— Marquette women’s basketball freshman Allazia Blockton has been named BIG EAST Freshman of the Week, the league office announced on Monday morning.
Blockton led Marquette (3-5) to a 1-1 week with a 77-61 victory over Wisconsin and a narrow 65-58 defeat to No. 7 Oregon State. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native averaged 19 points, five rebounds and 2.5 steals in the two games. Against the Beavers, Blockton tallied a team-high 21 points, while adding 17 points and five boards in the win over the Badgers.
Blockton leads the Golden Eagles with 17.0 points per game this season and ranks fourth overall in the BIG EAST, but is the top-scoring freshman. This is her second straight weekly honor after earning a spot on the weekly honor roll last week.
MU will be back in action on Sunday, Dec. 13 when the squad hosts Auburn at 1 p.m. Central time. It will air live on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel with Patrick Reed and Kevin O’Connor calling the action.
