Creighton now has the two most decorated newcomers in the history of Missouri Valley men's and women's basketball.
Doug McDermott set a men's record earlier this season when he was named the newcomer of the week for a seventh time. Monday, Carli Tritz matched McDermott's accomplishment by earning her seventh women's newcomer of the week award.
Tritz averaged 14 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists as the Bluejays split road games last week at Northern Iowa and Bradley. She shot 52.4 percent from the field and 85.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Tritz's seventh award surpassed the league record of six set by teammate Kelsey Woodard during the 2007-08 season.
