Matthews gives Nebraska back to back PotW honors.

Nebraska Athletic Department

Nebraska Baseball has their first Player of the Week since… last week. After Cole Evans exploded offensively 2 weeks ago, he passed the baton to Brice Matthews. Matthews had already been off to a good start on the year, hitting over .400 and leading the Huskers offense in both home runs and RBIs from the lead off spot.

Last week Brice went

  • .500 (7 for 14) raising his avg to .424
  • 4 extra base hits (2 HR, 1 double, 1 triple)
  • 11 RBI (increased his team leading amount to 28, 3rd in the B1G)
  • 4 runs scored (also leading the team at 21)
  • 2 stolen bases (is 9 for 11 on the year)
  • 1.722 OPS (Matthews lead the B1G with a 1.368 OPS)

This is the first time for Matthews winning the Player of the Week Award, and 2nd Husker to win a weekly award this year, joining Cole Evans.
