Gophers guard Gabe Kalscheur was honored for his performance in the Vancouver Showcase with the Big Ten freshman of the week award Monday.
Kalscheur, a 6-foot-4 DeLaSalle product, hit the game-winning three-pointer in the 68-66 title game victory against Washington. He also scored a season-high 25 points with 7-for-12 shooting from beyond the arc in a win against Santa Clara.
In three victories in Vancouver vs. Texas A&M, Santa Clara and Washington, Kalscheur averaged 14 points per game on 11-for-22 shooting from three-point range. He averaged 13.8 points through the first five games.
The last Gophers to win Big Ten freshman of the week honors was Isaiah Washington on Feb. 5, 2008.
