Baylor Lady Bear freshman Natalie Chou earned the first Big 12 Freshman of the Week award of her career Monday afternoon.

Chou came off the bench to score a career-high 15 points in Baylor’s 10th win of the season against Texas State last week. She tied for the team-high in scoring, while logging a career-high 24 minutes in the contest. It was her first time leading the team in scoring and third time scoring in double figures in her young career.

All 15 of the 6-1 guard’s points came via the three-point shot, as she netted 5-of-6 (.833). Chou’s five three-pointers made are a career-high, besting her previous mark of two three-pointers made against Mississippi Valley State.

The Lady Bears conclude their nonconference schedule on Thursday, Dec. 15 against Winthrop. Tipoff is set for 12 p.m. (CT) inside the Ferrell Center. Baylor opens Big 12 action at home on Thursday, Dec. 29 at 7 p.m., against Kansas State.
