WCIA — Illinois freshman Jalen Coleman-Lands is the Big Ten freshman of the week. The Indianapolis native averaged 19.5 points in two games last week for the Illini (13-16, 5-11 B1G), shooting 67 percent from beyond the arc. Coleman-Lands has made 75 3-pointers this season, passing DJ Richardson in the Illini record book for most 3’s in a season by a true freshman.
The Big Ten handed out its postseason awards for women’s basketball Monday night with two Illini named. Sophomore Chatrice White is on the second team, while Alex Wittinger was tabbed with All-Freshman accolades.
