Nebraska Baseball Places 24 on Spring 2011 Big 12 Commissionerís Honor Roll

By NU Athletic Communications
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.
