Poppens wins Freshman of the Week honors
AMES, Iowa – Chelsea Poppens became the third different Iowa State women’s basketball player to be named Big 12 Freshman of the Week this season, the conference announced Monday.
Poppens earned Freshman-of-the-Week accolades for the final week of the season after she averaged 10.5 points and 13 rebounds in the Cyclones’ games against Oklahoma State and Colorado last week. She went 9-for-11 from the charity stripe and nine of her 26 rebounds came off the offensive glass.

Re: Poppens wins Freshman of the Week honors
I don't see any way that Poppens isn't ridiculously good when she is a senior. I'm talking All Big-12 good, and she will be getting national honors as well. She just has great basketball IQ and has the physical skills to compete with just about anyone. And she has already put up outstanding stats... as a freshman.
And she has great teammates around her. We're going to be good for a while, folks.
