It was Johnson’s third double-double of the season and sixth game with 10-plus rebounds.

Her signature moment came when she hit her only 3-point attempt of the week with 1:51 remaining against OSU to pull the Cyclones within four points in trying to mount a late comeback. Johnson was .636 (7-of-11) from the floor and .750 (9-of-12) from the free-throw line in the two games combined.   

This is her third-career weekly honor and the sixth Freshman of the Week honor for Iowa State this season, as fellow freshman Jadda Buckley earned three weekly honors. The Cyclones have captured a league-best six Freshman of the Week honors so far this season.
