Glenn Robinson III earns Big Ten Freshman Of The Week award

Glenn Robinson III had a big week.

First, he was one rebound (nine) away from a double-double against Purdue, adding 12 points on an efficient 4-of-6 shooting to help the Wolverines topple the Boilermakers, 68-53 in Crisler Center.

The win was extra special for Robinson, whose father, Glenn Robinson, Jr., was the 1994 Naismith national player of the year at Purdue.

Next, Robinson tallied 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting and collected seven rebounds in a hard-fought road victory at Illinois, 74-60.

Now, the rookie has earned Big Ten Freshman Of The Week honors for his work.

Robinson earned his second Freshman Of The Week honors of the season.

The Wolverines have dominated the weekly award thus far.

The conference has given out 12 Big Ten Freshman Of The Week awards this season - Michigan has won fully half of them, with six.

Robinson has won two, guard Nik Stauskas has three and forward Mitch McGary has one.
