WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington State University sophomore outfielder Derek Jones has been named Pacific-10 Conference Baseball Player of the Week for Feb. 22-28, Commissioner Larry Scott announced, Monday.
Jones batted .438 (7-for-16) and was named the Most Valuable Player of the Brooks Wallace Memorial Classic in Lubbock, Texas, to lead the Cougars to a 4-0 record over the weekend. The Snohomish native hit safely in all four games against Bethune-Cookman and Texas Tech, notching a double, two home runs, three RBI, a stolen base and seven runs scored.
This is the second-career Pac-10 Player of the Week honor for Jones. He won it as a freshman in 2009 (March 23-29) when he batted .400 (4-for-10) with three home runs and six RBI in a three-game series at California.
This is Washington State's 63rd all-time Player of the Week Selection.
