Franey Named Big West's Top Freshman
While head coach Mark French relied on all of his freshmen in 2006-07, it was Jordan Franey who had the biggest impact on the Gauchos' success. The San Diego native led UCSB's first-year players in games played (33), starts (17), minutes (25.1 mpg), scoring (8.6 ppg), rebounding (4.0 rpg), assists (1.8 apg), and three-pointers made (44). One of Santa Barbara's best shooters from the perimeter, the forward shined from behind the three-point arc, ranking seventh in the Big Wes in three-point shooting percentage (.333) and eighth in three-pointers made (1.34). Her total of 44 three-point baskets led the Gauchos. Franey also made some noise on the UCSB all-time freshman record books, ranking eighth all-time with 59 assists and 10th with 285 total points. The forward's position as one of the premiere freshmen in the league was solidified when she was named the 2006-07 Big West Conference Freshman of the Year when the annual BWC awards were announced at the conclusion of the regular season. Franey became the first Gaucho to earn the honor since Kristen Mann in 2001. Welcome To The Show, Kid
