The Horizon League named Dani Franklin (Cedar Rapids, Iowa/George Washington) as its Freshman of the Week on Monday. The Iowa native netted 18 points and six rebounds versus both South Dakota (Dec. 9) and Illinois (Dec. 13) this past week.
She currently leads the Crusaders in scoring with 13.3 points per game and her 50% (17-for-34) mark from beyond the arc ranks second in the Horizon League.
Franklin earned Freshman of the Week accolades on Nov. 24th following double-figure tilts over Northern Illinois and Tennessee Tech, respectively.
Franklin and the rest of the Crusaders return to the court on Saturday, Dec. 20th at 2:00 pm versus SIU-Edwardsville.
