Nebraska's Kate Cain claimed the second Big Ten Conference freshman-of-the-week award of her young career when the conference announced its weekly honors on Monday.

The 6-foot-5 center from Middletown, New York, averaged 13.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.5 blocked shots in a pair of starts last week. In Saturday's win against Arkansas Pine Bluff, Cain had her second double-double with 16 points and a career-high 11 rebounds while adding three blocks. Cain helped the Huskers hold Arkansas Pine Bluff to an opponent-record-low four first-quarter points.

Earlier in the week Cain had 11 points, eight rebounds and a career-high six blocked shots in a loss against Clemson. Cain's six blocks tied the Nebraska freshman single-game record that was last achieved by Husker career block leader Janet Smith in January of 1979.
