Two Badgers earn Big Ten weekly honors

The Badgers women’s basketball team had two players earn Big Ten awards Monday as forward Serah Williams was selected as the Player of the Week and freshman Tessa Grady earned the conference’s Freshman of the Week honors.

Wisconsin went 2-0 at home this past week, beating Minnesota 59-56 on Tuesday and Rutgers 73-62 on Saturday. In those contests, Williams was utterly dominant, averaging 27.5 points and 13.5 rebound while also compiling five total blocks.

Grady didn’t appear in the team’s win over the Scarlet Knights, but she did have a massive impact on their victory over the Gophers, nailing a career-high five three-pointers in a 15-point performance.

The Badgers (10-9) will return to action Thursday night, squaring off with 12th-ranked Ohio State on the road in Columbus.
