Leti Romero named Freshman of the Week

By The Mercury

K-State’s Leti Romero put together one of her strongest weeks of the season for K-State, helping the Wildcats to a road win at its rival Kansas.

For her efforts, she was named the Big 12 Freshman of the Week for the fourth time this season on Monday. She is the first Wildcat in school history to be named Big 12 Freshman of the Week four times.

Romero, the league’s top freshman scorer and passer, approached a triple-double with 26 points on a career-best 10-of-16 shooting and a 4-of-6 effort from the foul line, eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

The Spanish import had 19 points, four rebounds, four assists, four steals and a block at Oklahoma State last Saturday.

With her 19 points, Romero became the fourth freshman in school history and the first since the 2001-02 season to reach the 400-point mark. She is the only freshman in the Big 12, the first freshman in school history and one of the only freshman guards in NCAA Division I with 400 or more points, 100 or more rebounds, 100 or more assists and 50 or more steals.

Romero leads K-State in scoring (14.5), rebounds (5.7), assists (4.7) and steals (1.9) per game
