Notre Dame freshman guard Jewell Loyd has been selected as the Big East Conference Freshman of the Week for the fourth time this season.
Loyd is the only four-time recipient of the honor during the 2012-13 season, and she is now the fourth Fighting Irish women’s basketball player to earn four Freshman of the Week citations in her career—the last Irish player to do so was senior co-captain Skylar Diggins in 2009-10.
On Sunday, Loyd rang up a game-high 19 points against DePaul in Chicago. Loyd’s career-best of 24 points was against third-ranked Baylor on Dec. 5.
During Sunday’s game, Loyd scored 12 of her 19 points within the first half, helping the Irish storm to their largest win ever over DePaul at McGrath-Phillips Arena.
