Record-setting Cornell stud Matt Morgan is our Freshman of the Week

We here at CBS Sports have once again teamed up with the United States Basketball Writers Association and its Wayman Tisdale Freshman of the Year Award, meaning our weekly feature on the best freshman in the country will work hand in hand with the Tisdale committee and the USBWA. The winner of the award in March, while a ceremony for all USBWA honors will take place in early April.

CBS Sports Freshman of the Week for Jan. 26-Feb. 1: Cornell’s Matt Morgan.

Well, what a surprise we have here!

Cornell, a 9-9 Ivy League team that has yet to put together a streak of any kind longer than two games this season, is the producer of the latest CBS Sports Freshman of the Week. Marquette’s Henry Ellenson and Florida State’s Dwayne Bacon — two players who help comprise the top five of the national Freshman Watch, which you can view below — had strong outputs over the previous seven days.

But Morgan did this.
