Jayhawk Pitcher Selik Named Big 12 Co-Pitcher of the Week

March 1, 2010

IRVING, Texas –

Kansas senior right-handed pitcher Cameron Selik has been named the Big 12 Conference’s co-Pitcher of the Week. Selik shares the award with Texas pitcher Cole Green.

Selik becomes the third Kansas pitcher in the last two years, and the first since T.J. Walz on April 16 last year, to be named the league’s hurler of the week. It is the first weekly award for the Jayhawk senior.

Selik, a senior pitcher from San Diego, Calif., matched his win total from a year ago in just one week. The right-handed pitcher earned wins over Eastern Michigan and Sacramento State last week, allowing just one earned run over 13 1/3 innings. The 6-foot-2 senior walked four and struck out 10. Over his last 20 innings pitched (which dates back to last season), Selik has allowed just two earned runs on 13 hits with 12 strikeouts.

Missouri outfielder Aaron Senne was named the Big 12’s Player of the Week.

Selik and the 25th-ranked Jayhawks (4-1) will travel to No. 15 Arkansas Tuesday to face the Razorbacks at 3 p.m. at Baum Stadium.
