Zack Cox has been named the Southeastern Conference
Player of the Week, as announced by the league office Monday afternoon.
The Louisville, Ky., native powered the Razorback offense in sweeps of
McNeese State and Alabama this week with a .556 batting average
(10-for-18), eight RBI, two home runs, .944 slugging percentage and .667
on-base percentage.
>
>             In Arkansas’ series-opening win against the Crimson Tide, Cox was
3-for-5 at the plate with a three-run home run and a career-high six
RBI. With two on in the fifth inning, he put his team on the board
after depositing a ball into the Razorback bullpen in left field. Cox
delivered again in the eighth inning with a three-run double to clear
the bases and tie the score. Later in the same inning, he came around
to score the game-winning run.
>
>             Cox’s heroics continued throughout the weekend as the Hogs completed a
sweep of Alabama. In game two, the Razorback sophomore had the
game-tying single in the bottom of the seventh inning to knot the
score at 3-3. His solo home run in the sixth inning of Sunday’s
finale, once again, drew Arkansas even with Alabama on the scoreboard.
>
>             With his performance at the plate, Cox also extended his
season-opening hit streak to 23 games, the longest under head coach
Dave Van Horn. Cox had three multi-hit games last week to push his
season total to 12. He tied a season high with three hits in the
midweek finale against McNeese and series opener against Alabama. He
also drew six walks—two intentionally—during the week.
>
>             On the season, Cox is second in the SEC with a team-leading .435
batting average; through six conference games, he carries a .458
batting average. Overall, Cox is second in the league with 40 hits,
third with a .527 on-base percentage, tied for eighth with 27 RBI and
ninth with a .641 slugging percentage.
