Walton Named Big 12 Player of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma State shortstop Donnie Walton has been named the Big 12 Conference Player of the Week for games played Feb. 17-23, it was announced by the league office today.

Walton helped 18th-ranked OSU to a 5-1 week that included series wins over Alcorn State and Oakland. The sophomore from Tulsa hit .500 (12-for-24) with five doubles, a home run and 11 RBIs. He tallied 20 total bases and an .833 slugging percentage and also added four walks and a stolen base. Defensively, he recorded 16 assists and did not commit an error.

In the series with Oakland, Walton was 8-for-16 at the plate with three doubles, a homer and seven RBIs. In a Saturday doubleheader, he went 6-for-10 with a homer, three doubles and five RBIs. That included a career-high four hits in the opener and tying a career best with three RBIs in the nightcap.

Walton hit safely in all six games last week, extending his career-long hitting streak to eight games. In doing so, he raised his batting average to a team-high .429.
