SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – NDSU's Max Loven collected the #SummitBSB Pitcher of the Week accolade while Oral Roberts' Jordan Wiley was named the Player of the Week, league officials announced Monday. 

Loven dominated UC Davis in what was NDSU's only win in a four-game set against the Aggies out in California. The lefthander tossed six scoreless innings, while allowing only two hits during a 7-4 win that came in game two of the series. The reigning Newcomer of the Year fanned three en route to his first win of the season.

Wiley went 4-for-10 with three home runs and five RBI to power Oral Roberts to a series win at Baylor. In game one, he provided pair of insurance runs with a two-run double in the seventh. He hit a pair of solo home runs in a game two loss. His third round-tripper opened the scoring in the series finale that ORU would take by a 4-2 score.
