Langford named Big Ten Freshman of the Week

For the third time this season, Romeo Langford is the Big Ten’s Freshman of the Week.

Langford earned the award after averaging 22.5 points, six rebounds and 2.5 assists across Indiana’s two games last week, shooting 54.2 percent from the field and 81 percent from the free throw line.

The 6-foot-6 guard scored a career-high 28 points to help the Hoosiers erase a 10-point first-half deficit in Thursday’s 73-65 win over Illinois. On Sunday at Michigan, Langford scored 17 points, including 11 in the second half, while grabbing six boards and making all six of his free throw attempts.

Langford last earned the award on Dec. 10.

Michigan State’s Nick Ward was named Big Ten Player of the Week after averaging 21.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks across a pair of wins for the Spartans.

  1. I think Romeo already knew all he needed to know before coming to Bloomington.

    He knew he’d be the centerpiece.
    He knew there was rebuilding happening in Archie’s second season.
    He knew he’d be gone after one season.
    He knew there wouldn’t be enough mature talent on this Hoosier team to go deep into an NCAA tournament.
    He knew it was a safe NBA audition played on a major conference stage with far better than average exposure.
    He knew our banner total would stay at five.
    He knew there would be fans ingratiating him as some sort of symbolic savior/hero.
    He knew Archie Miller would be forever grateful in securing the homeys of Indiana acceptance.

    What else is there to know?
