IOWA CITY – University of Iowa women’s basketball student-athlete Makenzie Meyer earned Big Ten weekly accolades, the conference office announced Monday. Meyer was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week.

Meyer earns the first Big Ten weekly honor of her career after shooting .700 (7-of-10) from the field and .750 (3-of-4) from 3-point range, in a pair of conference contests last week. The Mason City, Iowa, native set career highs in points (14), free throws made (12), and free throws attempted (14) in Iowa’s overtime win over Michigan State on Feb. 9. Meyer made 11 of her 14 free throws in the fourth quarter and overtime period to seal the win for the Hawkeyes.


Three days later, Meyer set her second career high in as many games with 16 points at No. 13 Ohio State. Meyer was 6-for-7 (.857) from the field and a perfect 3-for-3 from 3-point range in the contest.

Meyer is the first Hawkeye to win Freshman of the Week since Megan Gustafson won the award on Feb. 22, 2016.


The Hawkeyes return to action on Thursday, Feb. 16, hosting Northwestern at 7 p.m. (CT).
