Co-Player of the Week: Keegan McGovern, Georgia

Georgia's Keegan McGovern batted .571 (8-for-14) with five Home Runs, nine RBI, nine runs scored, four walks and perfect fielding in eight chances in leading Georgia to a 4-0 week. He tied a school record by blasting three home runs in one game in helping Georgia beat Charlotte 10-7 to compete a three-game sweep. In that game he went 3-for-3 with four runs scored, four RBI and two walks. He is one of only eight Bulldogs to ever hit three home runs in a game and the first to do it since 2009.

Co-Player of the Week: Brian Sharp, Missouri

Missouri's Brian Sharp tied the school record with nine RBI in Saturday's Game vs. Northeastern and finished a double shy of cycle while going 5-for-5. Sharp began his week by pitching Mizzou to a road shutout over nationally-ranked No. 24 Miami, tossing 5.0 shutout innings in his first career start. He struck out a career-high eight and did not walk a batter. For the week, Sharp hit .563 (9-for-16) while leading the team in RBI (10), homers (two) and total bases (18).

Pitcher of the Week: Adam Hill, South Carolina

South Carolina's Adam Hill set a Founders Park record with 14 strikeouts while not allowing a hit, walk or run in 7.0 IP to pick up his 11th career win as a Gamecock in the 7-0 win over Charleston Southern on Friday. He broke the old Founders Park record of 13 punchouts, set by Sam Dyson in 2009. The only base runner to reach off Hill was via a fielding error in the sixth inning. Hill had 100 pitches on the night and had two or more strikeouts in six of the seven frames.

Freshman of the Week: Zach DeLoach, Texas A&M

Texas A&M's Zach DeLoach accounted for the Aggies' first cycle since 2011 in the win over Stephen F. Austin on Tuesday. He also tied school single-game record for runs (5), going 4-for-4 with two walks, one double, one triple, one home run and one RBI. In the night-cap of Friday's doubleheader sweep against Cornell, he batted 3-for-4 with one walk, one triple, two runs and one RBI. In the first game Friday he reached base with a walk and HBP and accounted for an RBI in the decisive inning with a sacrifice fly.
