Edwards earns Pac-12 Freshman of the Week.
SAN FRANCISCO – For the third time this season, newcomer Dre'Una Edwards
has been named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week. Utah has won the honor four times total this year.
Edwards currently ranks in the top-15 in the Pac-12 in rebounding (total, offensive and defensive rebounds per game), field goal percentage, free throw percentage and steals and blocks per game. She is also tied among freshmen in the league in double-doubles, notching her fourth in Utah's win over Weber State on Saturday.
The Las Vegas, Nev. native was dominant against the Wildcats in Utah's final home non-conference game, tying her career-high in points with 19 while knocking down a career-best nine field goals. She also recorded a game-high 12 rebounds, her second straight game with a double-double.
Edwards rounded out her stat line with two steals, a block and an assist while shooting 69-percent from the floor. She has shot 50-percent or higher in four of Utah's nine games, including the last two.
Edwards and the Utes will return to action on Thursday when they take on the Florida Gators in Las Vegas for the Duel in the Desert tournament. The game is set for a 1 p.m. MT tip and will be streamed on FloHoops.com.
