(Neb.)- Miller & Hohensee Earn Big Ten Weekly Honors
(Lincoln)- Senior Ben Miller and junior Jake Hohensee were each instrumental in Nebraska posting a 4-1 record last week, including a series win over Maryland, the preseason pick to win the Big Ten. Monday afternoon the league office announced that Miller was tabbed as the league’s player of the week and Hohensee earned pitcher-of-the-week accolades.
Miller had a stellar week at the plate, as he hit .600 (12-20) with one home run, five runs, six RBIs and two doubles. On Saturday he became the 25th member of NU's 200-hit club with his 4-for-4 performance and then produced his second straight four-hit game on Sunday.
Miller has now been named Big Ten Player of the Week twice in his career and is also the last Husker to earn the award, achieving it last May.
Hohensee set the tone for the weekend with a dominant effort against the Terps on Friday night. The Lincoln native struck out a career-high eight batters and allowed one run on three hits over a career-high 8 1/3 innings in Nebraska’s 3-1 series-opening win. Hohensee has now won four straight starts to improve to 4-2 on the year and has gone at least 6.2 innings in each of the four starts.
Monday marked the first time Hohensee has been named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week and he’s the second Husker pitcher to earn the award this year, joining Jake Meyers.
The Huskers are back in action tomorrow night at Kansas State, and then return home this weekend with a three-game series against the Iowa Hawkeyes.
