Olson wins third straight weekly honor
Youngstown State guard Chelsea Olson is the Horizon League Freshman of the Week for the third consecutive week, the conference office announced on Monday. Olson is the first player to be named the Horizon League Freshman of the Week three straight times since the award was instituted in 2013-14.
Olson averaged nearly a double-double last week in helping the Penguins earn a pair of road wins. Olson scored 12 points while adding nine rebounds and five assists in Thursday’s victory at Oakland, and she followed that up with eight points, nine rebounds, four assists and a pair of 3-pointers at Detroit Mercy on Saturday. She averaged 10 points, nine rebounds and 4.5 assists in the two contests.
