Chamberlain's 15 strikeouts are NU's highest single-game total since two-time All-America Shane Komine fanned 16 during the 2000 season and two off Nebraska's single-game record. Chamberlain, who is 1-0 with a 0.79 ERA in two starts this season, has fanned 19 in 11.1 innings while not walking a batter.
While Chamberlain was honored, the Huskers also made a significant climb in the Collegiate Baseball poll released Monday afternoon. NU moved from No. 27 to No. 18 after opening the season with a 7-0 record, its best start since the 1992 season.
Chamberlain shared the player-of-the-week honor with Villanova's Nick Allen, who threw a seven-inning no-hitter in a win over Norfolk State, and South Carolina's Steve Pearce, who hit .615 with three homers, including two grand slams, and 10 RBIs in three games.
