PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Tony Thompson, Kansas, So., 3B, 6-5, 210, Reno, Nev./Galena
Sophomore Tony Thompson batted .429 during KU’s series win at No. 9 Oklahoma with two doubles and a pair of three-run homers in Sunday’s game. It was the Reno, Nev. native’s third multi-home run game of the season. Thompson started the series going 3-for-5 with a double and a pair of runs scored as KU topped the Sooners, 5-4 on Friday. KU’s third baseman doubled home two runs in the first inning of Saturday’s win, his 17th multi-RBI game of the season. Thompson then added to his Big 12-leading RBI total with six in Sunday’s finale, the most by a Jayhawk in a game this season. His 62 RBI in 2009 are tops in the conference and the most by a Kansas player since 2004, while his 14 homers are tied for the fourth-most in a single-season by a Jayhawk.
