For the fourth time this season, Mississippi State’s Josh Hubbard has been named SEC Freshman of the Week.

The phenom out of Madison-Ridgeland Academy catapulted the Bulldogs to a 71-67 victory over Arkansas on Saturday with a go-ahead three pointer in the final minute. Hubbard scored 14 of his 19 points after halftime while adding three rebounds and three assists with no turnovers.

On the season, Hubbard leads all SEC freshmen with 15 points per game. He ranks thirteenth in the conference out of all scorers.

The latest accolade for Hubbard makes him the second Mississippi State player in history to earn a quartet of SEC Freshman weekly honors, joining Jamont Gordon who did it during the 2005-06 season.

Hubbard will look to have another big performance when the Bulldogs (17-8, 6-6 SEC) host rival Ole Miss (19-6, 6-6) on Wednesday night in Starkville. The last time the two teams played, an 86-82 win for the Rebels, Hubbard had a team-high 21 points. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. CT and can be watched on ESPN2.
