The weekly conference awards continue for Oklahoma guard Sharane Campbell who earned her fourth Big 12 Freshman of the Week honor of the season Monday.

On the week the freshman averaged 21.5 points and 8.5 rebounds while shooting 14-of-19 for 74 percent from the field.

The Spencer, Okla. native set a career high after connecting on 8-of-10 shots for 23 points during the Sooners 78-64 overtime win against the Kansas Jayhawks.
