DALLAS (NCBWA) The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association released the Pro-Line Athletic National Player of the Week awards for the period ending April 18.

Lee Green
Pro-Line Athletic: The Choice of Champions.

Morehead State senior shortstop Drew Lee was named National Hitter of the Week, while Texas junior right-handed pitcher Cole Green was named National Pitcher of the Week. The NCBWA Board reviews candidates from each Division I Conference each week and names winners each Tuesday throughout the season.

Lee hit .550 (11-for-20) with 12 runs scored, three doubles, five home runs, 14 RBIs, two stolen bases and a 1.450 slugging percentage in four Morehead State victories last week. In a mid-week win over Marshall, the Mt. Sterling, Ky., native homered, drove in three runs and scored three times as the Eagles prevailed 15-6. Lee started a weekend sweep of Ohio Valley Conference foe Eastern Kentucky by homering three times in game one of Saturday's doubleheader. He drove in two more runs in the second game of the twin bill, bringing Saturday's RBI total to six. Lee concluded the week by adding another homer and driving in five additional runs. During the week Lee broke the Morehead State career RBI record and now has 181 for his career (27 away from the all-time OVC mark).

Green, a native of Coppell, Texas, allowed just one hit and three walks while striking out four in a complete-game shutout of the Aggies. Individually, it was his fourth career complete game and second shutout overall. The 14-0 victory marked the first time the Longhorns have blanked the Aggies since a 3-0 win on May 17, 2003. Green improved to 8-0 on the season and continues to lead the nation in victories.
