For the second straight week and the eighth time this season, freshman Carli Tritz of the Creighton women’s basketball team has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week. Tritz averaged 11.5 points, 4.0 assists and 3.0 steals per game in Bluejay home wins over Indiana State and Illinois State.
On the season, Tritz continues to lead the team with 83 assists and 62 steals, while averaging 10.9 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. Her eighth MVC Newcomer of the Week distances herself from the former league record of six set by teammate Kelsey Woodard in 2007-08. She has now won more MVC Newcomer of the Week honors this year (8), than the rest of the league combined (7).
