KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — University of Tennessee guard Zaay Green has been named the SEC Women’s Basketball Freshman of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday.

The honor was Green’s second this season. She also earned acclaim on Dec. 4 after her performance vs. Oklahoma State in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

Green averaged 14.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists last week to help the Lady Vols split a pair of games with No. 1/1 Notre Dame and LSU. She shot 41 percent from the field and dished out 10 assists with only one turnover in 71 minutes of action during that two-game span.

The 6-foot product of Duncanville, Texas, scored in double figures in both contests, including a career-high 19 points against Notre Dame on Thursday. She added eight rebounds and five assists in that match-up vs. the Fighting Irish while committing zero turnovers. Versus N.D., Green knocked down 5-of-8 shots in the second quarter to tally 11 points and stake the Lady Vols to a 34-31 lead at the half.

Green closed the week with 10 points, five assists, two rebounds, a block and a steal vs. LSU, as the Lady Vols snapped a six-game losing skid with a 74-65 home victory over the Lady Tigers.

The rookie, who has started the past 15 games, has scored in double figures 11 times this season, including the past four in a row. She is averaging 10.6 ppg., 4.3 rpg. and 2.6 apg. for the season.
