COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Freshman right-hander Wil Crowe earned his first win as a Gamecock this weekend and his performance earned him conference honors.  Crowe was named SEC Pitcher of the Week Tuesday. 

Crowe had an impressive debut as he hurled 6.1 hitless innings in his first career start with the Gamecocks this past weekend against Bucknell.  Crowe walked just one and hit one batter while finishing with five strikeouts to earn his first career win in a Gamecock uniform.  

Bucknell had just one runner reach second base and none reach third base while Crowe was on the mound.  Crowe retired 13 consecutive batters in a row before coming out of the game as he reached his pitch count total.
