WBB: Joens earns third straight Big 12 Freshman of the Week honor

It’s been quite the past few weeks for emerging Iowa State women’s basketball star, Ashley Joens, as the Iowa City native collected her third-straight Big 12 Freshman of the Week award.

Joens, who is averaging 11.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, helped the Cyclones take down both Texas Tech and K-State last week.

The freshman has helped the Cyclones to a 7-3 start to Big 12 play and is averaging a 46.2 percent clip from the floor.

The No. 22 Cyclones return to the floor on Saturday when it welcomes in West Virginia to Hilton Coliseum at 6 p.m.
