Freshman forward Miles Bridges was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the fourth time this season, according to a press release.
Bridges averaged 24 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks and two steals per game during a two-game span against University of Michigan and then-No. 20 Purdue University.
In a loss against the Boilermakers, Bridges scored a career-high 33 points with seven rebounds and four blocks while shooting 70.6 percent from the field. Against U-M, Bridges scored 15 points and dominated the boards with 13 rebounds, adding three steals in the Spartans' Sunday win.
