Michigan Wolverines guard Nik Stauskas has been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the third time this season after scoring 19 points and converting five three-pointers against Central Michigan on Saturday.
Stauskas averages 13.8 points and three three-pointers per game and is shooting from behind the arc at a 56 percent clip. He is the nation's top three-point shooter.
The award marks the sixth time in the season's first eight weeks that a Michigan Wolverines player was named with Big Ten Player of the Week or Big Ten Freshman of the Week. Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. have also picked up a Player of the Week award, and Mitch McGary has won the Freshman of the Week award.
The Michigan Wolverines remain undefeated and are ranked No. 2 in the latest AP poll. Stauskas and the Wolverines open up Big Ten conference play on Thursday against the Northwestern Wildcats.
