Aramis Garcia, Hitter of the Week; FIU ranked in more polls.

A busy awards Monday in the Conference USA offices -- FIU senior guard Jerica Coley lost Player of the Year to Middle Tennessee State's Ebony Rowe -- included FIU junior catcher/first baseman Aramis Garcia getting Hitter of the Week honors after FIU slapped around Bethune-Cookman and swept Charlotte in their first C-USA series.

Garcia cracked three home runs, two doubles and a single with five RBI.

Collegiate Baseball ranks FIU No. 19

FIU plays perennial Conference USA favorite Rice this weekend at Camp Mitch to determine the best team in C-USA right now.

Rice is No. 19 in the USA Today Coaches poll in which FIU received votes. FIU isn't in the Baseball America Top 25, while Rice is No. 15. FIU is up to No. 29 in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association poll while Rice is No. 18. Perfect Game's poll puts Rice at No. 15 and FIU among Five Others to Watch.


Coley First Team All-Conference, Murphy Second Team; Spring Football in the dark

No surprises from the Conference USA All-Conference basketball teams announced Monday -- senior guard Jerica Coley First Team for the women and one of Coley's biggest fans, senior guard Tymell Murphy, Second Team for the men.

Coley, conference and national leader averaging 29.6 points per game, also leads FIU in assists, steals, blocked shots and minutes. This is her fourth recent conference, regional or national honor, but the first to be only about basketball and not include her excellent academic record.

Murphy averaged 16.6 points per game on 58.4 percent shooting. He's the seventh highest scoring player in FIU history with 984 points despite playing only two years at Camp Mitch. His 57.9 career shooting percentage is an FIU record. This season, he also averaged 7.4 rebounds, 1.94 steals per game and 1.52 blocks per game (average speed on those blocks: bazooka).


The spring football schedule of 15 practices, beginning March 18 and ending with the Spring Game April 12 has been released. A bunch of 9 a.m. practices, but that's irrelevant to you because all practices before the 11 a.m. Spring Game are closed to the public.
