Vonleh named Freshman of the Week


IU men’s basketball freshman forward Noah Vonleh was named the first 2013-14 Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Monday after his debut double-double against Chicago State Friday.

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.
