DALLAS – University of Nebraska right-hander Joba Chamberlain earned a pair of honors on Wednesday, as he was named Big 12 Pitcher of the Week and Pro-Line Caps National Pitcher of the Week from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) for the week ending March 5.

Chamberlain was dominant against Notre Dame last Friday, holding the Fighting Irish to just three hits over seven innings. He posted his second-straight double-figure strikeout effort with a season-high 11 Ks, including six of the first 11 hitters he retired in order. He needed just 89 pitches to get through the seventh and left with NU ahead 10-0. Chamberlain, who improved to 2-1 with a 1.29 ERA, has struck out 21 hitters and walked just two in his last two outings.  

This is the second Big 12 weekly honor of the season for Chamberlain, who is on the watch list for the Clemens and Brooks Wallace Awards, and the second time he has been selected as national pitcher of the week during his career. 

Chamberlain and the rest of the sixth-ranked Huskers return to action on Friday afternoon, as they take on the No. 30 Alabama Crimson Tide. First pitch is set for 2:05 p.m. at Hawks Field and General Admission Tickets are available by calling 800-8BIGRED or logging on to
