Sprowls named SEC Player of the Week

LSU senior outfielder Bruce Sprowl was named SEC Player of the Week Monday by the league office after leading the Tigers to four consecutive victories from Feb. 21-26.

Meanwhile, the Tigers – winners of eight straight games – moved from 15th to 8th in this week's Collegiate Baseball magazine poll, and from 19th to 17th in the Baseball America poll.

Sprowl batted .533 (8-for-15) in the Tigers' four victories last week, collecting two doubles, two triples, six RBI and three runs. He also walked twice, contributed a sacrifice fly and posted a .556 on-base percentage.

Sprowl was 6-for-10 in last weekend's series versus Temple with two doubles, two triples and five RBI. He is LSU's leading hitter this season, batting .429 (18-for-42) on the year with three doubles, two triples, eight RBI and 11 runs.

LSU (10-1) returns to action at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when the Tigers play host to Louisiana-Monroe (0-9) in Alex Box Stadium. The game will be televised live by Cox Sports Television (Cable Ch. 37 in Baton Rouge).
