The Pac-12 has added Freshman of the Week to its weekly honors for the first time this season, joining the standard Player of the Week honor which this week went to Stanford's Chiney Ogwumike.
Roberson, a 6-1 forward from San Antonio, scored 16 points on 7-of-13 from the field in her college debut Sunday as Colorado defeated Idaho 70-65 in its season opener. She also grabbed six rebounds, four of which came on the offensive end, while collecting five steals, two assists and two blocked shots.
Her five steals were the most by a freshman in her CU debut since Brittany Spears had five in her initial game at San Francisco in 2007. Roberson's final steal was critical as it came with under one minute left with the Buffaloes hanging on to a five-point lead.
