Ellenson is now a seven-time winner of the BIG EAST Freshman of the Week honor, setting quite a pace this season. The Rice Lake, Wisconsin native posted 35 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two steals last week vs. both Creighton and Villanova, helping lead the Golden Eagles to a 1-1 performance.
The 6-foot-11, 245-pound power forward scored 22 and grabbed 10 rebounds in MU's win over Creighton. He would follow that up with 13 points, six rebounds, two assists, and a block and a steal in a losing effort against Villanova on Saturday.
