Debut in beastmode, acquire accolades:
Ohio State freshman Jared Sullinger earns the conference’s first Freshman of the Week award after posting a double-double of 19 points and 14 rebounds in Ohio State’s 102-61 win over North Carolina A&T on Friday. He is the first Buckeye true freshman to reach double digits in both scoring and rebounding in his debut game since Herb Williams opened his career with 34 points and 10 boards in 1977. Sullinger made six of 10 shots from the field in his debut with six of his rebounds coming on the offensive side. The Columbus, Ohio, native also made seven of eight foul shots and recorded two assists in 21 minutes of court time.
