UCF’s leading scoring through its first three American Athletic Conference games, Kaba is the top-scoring freshman in the league at 14.0 points per game.
She set career highs in free throws made (5), assists (2) and minutes played (39) against Wichita State and tied her career-best in steals (3) at SMU. She helped the Knights to their first-ever 3-0 start in The American.
Monday marked the second freshman honor for Kaba, as she also earned the distinction on Nov. 27. She is the sixth Knight to earn the accolade, but the first to be tabbed more than once in her rookie campaign.
The Knights (11-5, 3-0 The American) open a two-game road stretch at No. 1 UConn on Tuesday. The 7 p.m. game in Gampel Pavilion will air on SNY/ESPN3.
