Minnesota guard Joe Coleman was named the Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Week after helping the Gophers secure a pair of Big Ten road victories last week, at No. 7 Indiana and at Penn State. Coleman, a Minneapolis native and Hopkins High School graduate, averaged 15.5 points and 4.0 rebounds this week. He scored a career-high 23 points in the win over Penn State that included a 13-of-14 effort from the free throw line while playing 36 minutes, also a career-high. Coleman, who has started the last three games for Minnesota, came up big in the upset victory at Indiana, as he scored eight points, including four free throws in the final minute, to help the Gophers defeat the seventh-ranked Hoosiers in Bloomington.
