Nina Davis was named Big 12 Freshman of the Week for the fourth time.
Jan. 27, 2014
Baylor forward Nina Davis was selected for Phillips 66 Big 12 Women's Basketball Freshman of the Week honors for the fourth time this season and Texas' Nneka Enemkpali was chosen as the league's Player of the Week. Davis is the first freshman to be honored four times this season.
Davis, a freshman from Memphis, Tenn., averaged 12.5 points and 11.5 rebounds in Baylor's two victories last week. She tallied nine points and six rebounds against K-State during the midweek game. In BU's overtime win at No. 8/9 Oklahoma State, Davis scored 16 points, hauled down a career-high-tying 17 rebounds and also tied career highs in steals (5) and blocks (2). The rookie forward leads the Big 12 in field goal percentage (.601) and tops Conference freshmen in rebounding (8.2 rpg) and ranks No. 2 in scoring (13.5 ppg).
Enemkpali, a junior forward, recorded a Big 12 season-high 21 rebounds to lead Texas to a 66-63 victory over No. 18/21 West Virginia on Saturday. She scored 15 points with two blocks in 34 minutes. In the last 21 seconds of the game, Enemkpali blocked a shot, made a free throw to put UT up by three points, and secured the final defensive rebound of the game off a missed WVU shot.
