Tulane's series sweep of Connecticut not only vaulted the Wave over the previously undefeated Huskies in the American Athletic Conference standings, it also earned a pair of Greenies some high praise.

Senior first baseman Hunter Williams was named AAC Player of the Week while senior lefty Christian Colletti earned the conference's Pitcher of the Week honor. Williams' stat-line was highlighted by two home runs, including a ninth-inning, game-tying shot. Colletti put together three outings that combined for seven innings and no runs allowed.

Travis Jewett's team now sits at 18-18 overall but 7-2 in conference play, good enough for first place. They're back in action Tuesday hosting UL-Lafayette at 6:30 PM.
