Freshman forward Tolulope Omokore earned her first league honor after she was named the American Athletic Conference’s Freshman of the Week today.

Omokore started for the first time last week, averaging 15.5 points and 9.0 rebounds per game in the first two starts of her career. Against Memphis, she posted 13 points, carrying her hot hand over to the next game with 18 points against Tulsa.

She became the sixth Knight to post a double-double this season with her first coming against Memphis (13 points, 13 rebounds).

Omokore hopes to maintain her high-level of play as the Knights set up to battle it out on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the CFE Arena against Tulane.
