·1 min read

For the fifth time this season, Oklahoma Baseball was awarded a Big 12 weekly honor with infielder/outfielder Brett Squires selected as the conference’s co-Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Texas Christian University’s Luke Boyers. This is the second time in his collegiate career that Squires has won a weekly award from the Big 12.

The redshirt sophomore had a good series against West Virginia, going 6 for 8 with seven RBIs, including a home run in the rubber match of the series, a 17-7 win for the Oklahoma Sooners.

No. 12 has appeared in 28 games in 2022, hitting .338 with four home runs and 19 RBIs on the season. Squires is in his second season with OU after transferring from Texas JUCO McLennan College.

After winning the award, Squires went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts against Wichita State in an 18-0 loss on the road.

The Sooners are going to need their best from Squires and everyone else in the lineup going into their final series of the season against No. 5 Texas Tech Red Raiders. The three-game series begins on Thursday night. Tech just swept the Oklahoma State Cowboys in their three-game series last week in Stillwater.
