Nik Stauskas has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the third time this season after scoring 19 points against Central Michigan.

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.
