MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Sophomore left-hander pitcher Harrison Musgrave
of the West Virginia University baseball team has been named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) National Pitcher of the Week for his complete game shutout victory at Texas.
Musgrave led the Mountaineers to a 1-0 win in game one last Friday, allowing just six hits in 9.0 innings. Musgrave struck out nine, walking just two, in the 124-pitch effort. He retired the Longhorns in order in the first, second, sixth and seventh innings.

This is the first time since the 2010 season that a WVU player has earned an NCBWA distinction as Grant Buckner was named the National Hitter of the Week on May 10.
