Michigan State's Jaren Jackson Jr. has been named Big Ten freshman of the week after averaging 14.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 4.7 blocks and going 13-of-20 (.650) from the field in three Spartans' victories.

It's the fourth time this season the 6-foot-11 forward has received the honor.

The La Lamiere High standout scored a career-high 21 points and added 11 rebounds for his sixth double-double this season to go along with six blocks in MSU's win at Illinois Jan. 22.

Jackson set the school single-season record for blocks with four in Friday's 76-61 win over Wisconsin, which gave him 75 for the campaign. He finished with 11 points and seven rebounds against the Badgers.

In Sunday's 74-68 win over Maryland, he finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and four blocks.
