Justin Champagnie Named CBS Sports National Freshman of the Week

Justin Champagnie Named CBS Sports National Freshman of the Week

For the first time in almost eight years, a Pitt freshman basketball player has been recognized nationally.

Pitt’s Justin Champagnie has been named the CBS Sports/USBWA Freshman of the Week following his standout performances against Notre Dame and Georgia Tech.

In back-to-back games, the Brooklyn native averaged 25 points and 10 rebounds as the Panthers split those two games to run their record to 15-9 and 6-7 in the ACC.

The 20 points, 10 rebound game was the 20th such time a Pitt freshman has accomplished that feat. Champagnie became only the fourth freshman in Pitt history to score 30 points in a single game.

The last Pitt player to win a national weekly award was Travon Woodall back on February 6, 2012 winning the Oscar Robertson Player of the Week.
