Big Ten Player of the Week
Lars Davis, Illinois
Jr., C, Grande Prairie, Alberta/Grande Prairie
Davis earns his first career weekly honor after batting .857 (12-for-14) to close out Illinois' Spring Break trip. The junior recorded four hits in each of the Illini's three games last week, also contributing three home runs, one double, five RBI and five runs for a 1.571 slugging percentage. The catcher went 1-for-1 on the base paths and threw out two of three would-be base stealers. Davis is riding a career-best eight-game hit streak and leads the Big Ten with a .492 average.
