Oklahoma baseball: Sooner Bryce Madron Big 12 Player of the Week


Oklahoma baseball outfielder Bryce Madron has been named Big 12 Player of the Week for March 11-17.

The Sooner senior outfielder helped lead the Sooners (13-6, 6-0) to a 4-0 week, including a three-game sweep of No. 12 TCU. Madron batted .438 for the week (7 for 16) with a home run and four RBI. He also walked four times, stole three bases and scored five times.

For the season, Madron is hitting .353 with a pair of home runs and 15 RBI. He leads the Sooners with 26 runs scored, 17 walks and a .483 on-base percentage. Through six conference games and six OU wins, Madron leads the Big 12 in runs scored (8).

This is the first Player of the Week award for Madron and the second Oklahoma player in as many weeks to receive the honor. Sophomore catcher Easton Carmichael, who ranks sixth in the Big 12 with a .400 batting average, was Co-Player of the Week last week. Those are the only Big 12 weekly honors for a Sooner player this season.

Madron is joined in Big 12 weekly honors this week by Tommy Boba of Cincinnati, who was named Pitcher of the Week, and pitcher Mason Green, Newcomer of the Week.

Oklahoma is back home at L. Dale Mitchell Park on Tuesday evening to host Dallas Baptist, its second ranked opponent in less than a week. The Patriots are ranked 15th in the country this week in the D1Baseball Poll. The Sooners lost to Dallas Baptist 11-7 on Feb. 20.
