Balogun Notches Fourth ACC Freshman of the Week Award

THE FLATS –Georgia Tech freshman Elizabeth Balogun was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Freshman of the Week for the fourth time this season after helping the Yellow Jackets to a 1-1 week in conference play, including a top 15 defeat over Syracuse.

Balogun paced Tech’s offense on the week, averaging 21.5 points. The Chattanooga, Tenn., native knocked down a career-high six three-pointers at Clemson to open the week, finishing with a team-high 23 points against the Tigers. She followed that performance with a 20-point outing against No. 12 Syracuse on Sunday. She hit four three-pointers, pulled down seven rebounds and blocked a career-high six shots to help the Jackets upset No. 12 Syracuse.

Balogun now has 15 games scoring in double-figures this season, including the last 11 outings. Her 20-point game against the Orange marked the fifth 20-plus point outing this season. She currently leads the team in scoring, averaging 15.4 points per game and owns a team-best 26 blocks on the season.

The weekly honor is the ACC-leading fourth for Balogun and sixth overall for the Yellow Jackets this season – classmate Elizabeth Dixon has earned two.

Georgia Tech returns to the hardwood on Sunday, Jan. 27 to welcome NC State. Tip is slated for 2 p.m. on ACC Network Extra.
