For the fourth time this season, Lady Raider freshman point guard Japreece Dean has been named the Big 12 Women's Basketball Freshman of the Week. She shares the award this week with West Virginia’s Tynice Martin.

She has been a definite bright spot in a down time for the program. Dean has to be in the conversation for Big 12 newcomer of the year and the freshman all-American team.

Dean is the first Lady Raider in Big 12 history to win this award four times in a single season.

Dean averaged 11.0 points, 5.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds from her point guard position in Texas Tech’s loss to TCU and overtime win over Iowa State. She sunk 5-6 from the foul line and had 4 steals.

Next up for the Lady Raiders is a Wednesday morning road tilt with Oklahoma, in Norman. Tipoff is set for 10:30 a.m., as part of OU’s Education Day celebration.
