For the fifth time in the 2015-16 season, BIG EAST Freshman of the Week honors go to Marquette Golden Eagles power forward Henry Ellenson.

Ellenson proved vital in Marquette's two victories over Stetson and Butler this past week. Ellenson scored a career-high 32 points against the Bulldogs Saturday in MU's 75-69 win. Ellenson was 14-for-16 from the free throw line, grabbed 10 rebounds, and blocked six shots with a steal to boot.

Although Ellenson's numbers were all over the place against Stetson, he was 4-for-6 from the free throw line, picked up 12 points, and grabbed 11 rebounds.

Congrats to Henry on this achievement.
