SAN ANTONIO — The American Athletic Conference recognized Idara Udo on Tuesday, selecting the Plano, Texas native as their Freshman of the Week after she delivered a solid shift off the bench in a 75-64 victory over Seattle U. Joining her in receiving recognition, redshirt junior Elyssa Coleman was selected for the AAC Weekly Honor Roll.
Udo helped UTSA best the Redhawks to the tune of 15 points, nine rebounds, and two assists while going an incredibly efficient 62.5% from the field. Coleman, meanwhile, went 7-for-12 charting 18 points. In addition to her scoring success, she hauled in nine rebounds, swatted a pair of blocks, and swiped a steal.
The Roadrunners last boasted a Freshman of the Week on Nov. 22, 2021, after Coleman claimed the C-USA accolade, dropping 14 points and 12 rebounds across a 66-60 win over UIW. Additionally, Udo’s accomplishment marks the first occasion in which a UTSA women’s basketball player was honored since joining The American.
Coleman has become the fourth ‘Runner to crack the honor roll as senior Kyra White, sophomore Sidney Love, and freshman Aysia Proctor have previously been recognized this season.
