Redshirt freshman guard Joseph Young

Feb. 27, 2012

HOUSTON - Two days after posting a career high in points, University of Houston redshirt freshman guard Joseph Young was honored Monday as the Conference USA co-Freshman of the Week.

The Houston native and Yates High product picked up the first weekly award of his career after averaging 21.5 points and 3.0 rebounds in two games last week.

With 27 points on 8-of- 13 shooting, Young helped lead the Cougars to a 62-59 win against C-USA rival SMU on Saturday inside Hofheinz Pavilion. He spearheaded a 9-0 run at the end of the first half to give the Cougars a 28-20 lead at the break.

Late in the game, Young drained a pair of free throws with 1.9 seconds remaining and the Cougars clinging to a 60-59 lead. He posted his third 20-point game of the season, tying for second most among the Cougars.

Earlier in the week, he finished with 16 points in the Cougars' 66-58 loss at Marshall.

Young shared the award with Rice's Dylan Ennis. Memphis' Will Barton was honored as the league's Player of the Week.


UP NEXT
Young and the Cougars return to action at 7 p.m., Wednesday, when they face Tulane inside Hofheinz Pavilion. It will be the Cougars' regular-season finale in front of the hometown fans. That game will feature Senior Night activities for guard Darian Thibodeaux and his family.

From there, Cougars close out their regular-season slate at 7 p.m., Saturday, against Rice inside Tudor Fieldhouse. The Owls claimed a 79-71 win on Feb. 8 inside Hofheinz Pavilion.
