In the first matchup between the two teams this season, redshirt senior Nolan Metcalf had his first career multi-home run game and finished with five RBIs. Metcalf is one of six KU players to have a multi-homer game this season.
Sophomore shortstop Maui Ahuna was ranked as the best shortstop in the Big 12 and the sixth best shortstop in the country by D1Baseball. Ahuna is hitting .394 this season which is the second highest batting average in the Big 12.
This past weekend against TCU, redshirt senior Caleb Upshaw hit home runs on back-to-back days. He has homered in consecutive games twice this season and leads the Jayhawks with 12 home runs this year.
