Weekly awards just keep piling up for Brice Sensabaugh.

After scoring a career-high 27 points against Iowa, the first-year Buckeye was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the fourth time this season. Sensbaugh hit 10 of his 12 shot attempts and four of his five 3-point attempts in a stellar effort against the Hawkeyes. The 93-77 win snapped a five-game losing skid for Ohio State.

Sensabaugh also scored 18 points in a loss to Nebraska three days prior.

Sensabaugh is now averaging 17.5 points per game on 51.1% shooting, with only five other players in the Big Ten putting up bigger scoring numbers a night. In the past 10 games, Sensabaugh averaged 20.6 points and knocked down 52.3% of his field goals. He’s finished with double-digit rebounds in three of the last four games as well.

If Sensabaugh continues replicating those numbers, there's little doubt he'll rack up plenty more Big Ten awards before the season comes to an end.
