Only once in the past 13 seasons had a University of Notre Dame women's basketball player earned conference freshman-of-the-week honors in consecutive weeks. It's taken freshman forward Brianna Turner (Pearland, Texas/Manvel) less than two months to pull off that feat twice.
For the fourth time this season, Turner was chosen as the Atlantic Coast Conference Freshman of the Week, earning that honor today based on a vote of the conference's Blue Ribbon Panel that is comprised of the ACC's 15 head coaches, local and national media members and the women's basketball media relations directors for each school.
Turner, who also received the ACC's top weekly freshman honor back on Nov. 17 and 24, has garnered exactly half of the conference's eight Freshman of the Week awards this season, with no other player earning that distinction more than once to date in the 2014-15 campaign.
