(Lincoln- Huskers.com)- Nebraska senior third baseman MJ Knighten was named Co-Big Ten Player of the Week, the conference announced on Monday. Knighten shared the honor with Indiana’s Taylor Uden, while Michigan’s Megan Betsa claimed pitcher-of-the-week honors and Minnesota’s Kendyl Lindamann was recognized as the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
Knighten was honored after leading Nebraska to a three-game series sweep of two-time defending Western Athletic Conference champion New Mexico State over the weekend.

The 2016 first-team All-American went 7-for-11 (.636) in the series with three doubles, one home run, four RBIs and six runs scored. She totaled at least two hits, one run, one RBI and one extra-base hit in all three games of the series, while averaging 2.3 hits per game, 2.0 runs per contest, 1.3 runs and 1.3 extra-base hits per game.
