A’ja Wilson was named SEC Freshman of the Week on Monday after being named MVP of the Lucaya Division of the Junkanoo Jam last week.
Wilson led the No. 1 Gamecocks to wins over Wisconsin and then-No. 22 Syracuse last week, leading the team in scoring against the Badgers and scoring 15 against the Orange. She had three steals against Wisconsin and took over the team’s scoring during a 3:30 span against Syracuse, with eight of her 15.
Wilson, the country’s No. 1 prospect last year, is hoping to become USC’s second straight SEC Freshman of the Year after Alaina Coates. Coates was named SEC Freshman of the Week a league record-tying five times last year.
