IRVING, Texas – Highlighted by her first career 20-point performance on Wednesday, freshman Bailey Maupin has been named Big 12 Freshman of Week, the conference announced Monday afternoon.


For the week, the Gruver product scored 15 points a game and grabbed five rebounds. Maupin opened the week with 12 points and 5 rebounds against Jackson State, before exploding for a career-high 20 point game against Colorado.
