Ryan Woolridge Named Conference USA Freshman Of The Week

Feb. 13, 2017

DENTON – North Texas freshman guard Ryan Woolridge was named Conference USA Freshman of the Week after averaging 13.5 points per game last week. Awards are chosen by a vote from a media panel representing the 14 member schools.

The Mean Green have earned back-to-back Freshman of the Week honors for the first time since joining the Conference USA. Woolridge is fourth on the team in scoring (9.5 per game) but is averaging 16 points per game in his last three games.

Woolridge had a stellar week on the road, averaging 13.5 points per game as the Mean Green split its pair of conference games. He tied his career-high with 21 points, including 17 in the second half, at FIU on Saturday. In the 70-64 win at Florida Atlantic, Woolridge chipped in six points and grabbed a career-best 10 rebounds.

The Mansfield, Texas native, dished out four assists in each game and finished the week shooting 64.7 percent from the field (11-for-17). This is Woolridge’s first C-USA Freshman of the Week honor.

North Texas return home to face UTEP on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. on beIN sports network.
