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.
