Iowa’s Aaron White has been named the Big Ten’s co-freshman of the week. The six-eight forward averaged 13 points and eight rebounds in victories over Minnesota and Penn State.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says White’s line of 17 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists showed the many ways he can impact the game. McCaffery says White is shooting the ball well from the outside and he can also take it in and dunk it, and that is good to have.

White runs the floor well for a big guy and it has led to several easy layups, and McCaffery says that’s because he has developed his stamina to be able to run. He says if you don’t have the stamina to run all the time, you are only going to get a couple of those easy lay ups before the other team gets back and stops you.

Iowa returns to action on Thursday at Northwestern.
