Make it back-to-back Big Ten honors for Brice Sensabaugh.

Ohio State's first-year star was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the second straight time Tuesday after a 19-point performance in a 95-61 win against Maine last Wednesday.

Sensabaugh, who leads the Buckeyes with an average of 15.3 points per game so far this season, shot 8-for-12 from the floor and knocked down three of his five 3-point attempts in Ohio State's most recent game. Sensabaugh also finished with seven rebounds and seven assists against Maine.

The week prior, the 6-foot-6 forward scored a career-high 22 points – including a clutch go-ahead bucket with just seconds remaining in regulation – in the Buckeyes' overtime loss to North Carolina at Madison Square Garden.

Sensabaugh has started each of the past three games in the absence of Isaac Likekele, and will likely earn his fourth consecutive start on Thursday as the Buckeyes play their final game before the start of the new year in a 3 p.m. matchup with Alabama A&M at the Schottenstein Center.
