Pitching Duo Earns National Honors | GoFrogs.com

Green and Eissler were both dominant in their recent starts, combining to pitch 15 innings and striking out 23, while allowing just two hits. Thus, they were both named National Pitcher of the Week by Collegiate Baseball. Green was also named Co-Big 12 Pitcher of the Week with Oklahoma’s Jake Irvin.

Eissler picked up where he left off last week against Texas Tech. The sophomore made his rotation debut on Saturday against Lamar and faced the minimum 18 batters through six innings of work. He allowed one hit, but picked the batter off. Additionally, he notched a career-high 12 strikeouts, giving him 23 over his last 11 innings pitched.

Green etched his name into the TCU history books becoming just the fourth TCU pitcher to toss a solo nine inning, one-hitter. It was the 19th one-hitter in program history. The sophomore lefty held a no-hitter into the ninth inning and allowed just three total baserunners in the game. Green issued just one walk and struck out a career-high 11 batters.

This TCU player has been invited to the NBA Draft Combine | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Kenrich Williams got a big invite to the NBA Combine, a huge step towards getting drafted. This doesn’t mean that will happen, as there are only 60 players drafted. But, working out in front of every NBA team at the same time gives him an opportunity few other college players get.

The star guard has been chosen as one of 69 players to receive an invitation to the NBA Draft Combine, which will be held in Chicago from May 16-20.

Williams finished his career in Fort Worth by amassing 1,125 points, which ranks 21st all-time in school history, and 877 rebounds, which ranks fourth.
