Vonleh named Freshman of the Week
By Nathan Brown
In the Hoosiers’ first game of the regular season, Vonleh kicked the game off with IU’s first five points, including his first-made free throw in exhibition and regular season contests.
The 6-foot-10 freshman from Haverhill, Mass., scored 11 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. He also pulled down three of IU’s 13 blocks and found his touch from the charity stripe, going 5-for-5 from the line.
With his stats, Vonleh became the fourth freshman since IU Coach Tom Crean took over in 2008 to record a double-double in his regular season debut. He is the first Hoosier to earn the distinction since Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell won it for the second time March 4.
