The Nebraska baseball team earned 24 spots on the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll for the spring 2011 semester, which recognizes student-athletes who record a 3.0 GPA or higher during the previous term.
Nebraska had a total of 330 honorees across its 23 varsity sports, including 50 student-athletes with perfect 4.0 GPAs. That group included freshman pitcher Jon Keller and junior Sam Stucky, a catcher from McPherson, Kan., who achieved a perfect GPA for the second straight semester.
Senior pitcher Casey Hauptman earned the honor for the eighth time in his career, marking the end to a streak that saw the Omaha, Neb., native appear on the list every semester of his four-year career. Junior infielder Cody Asche earned the honor for the fifth straight term.
The 24 selections gives the Husker baseball program 53 during the 2010-11 school year, as it had 29 honorees in the Fall of 2010.
