Freshman Sydney Lamberty liked being the BIG EAST Freshman of the Week so much, she decided to keep the title a second week. Lamberty earned the honor for the second consecutive week on Monday, Dec. 15.
Lamberty averaged 12.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists in a 2-1 week for the Bluejays, with the lone setback being a narrow 60-57 loss to nationally ranked Nebraska. The rookie started all three games for Creighton, with her 14 points, 11 rebounds against Northern Iowa being team highs. Lamberty’s assist average led the Bluejays last week, while her rebounding mark was tied for the lead and her point total ranked third. She shot .441 from the floor, including a .400 clip from deep. She is the first player this season to be named BIG EAST Freshman of the Week in back-to-back weeks.
