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.

Win the series 2-1 or better and we'll be a consensus top 25 in all polls...

See you this weekend at FIU.

Congrats to all. Wow, that Ebony Rowe must have averaged like 20 rebounds a game or something to win that award over Jerica Coley. I mean, I know MTSU is a very solid team, and FIU a mediocre one, but still....

As for baseball, ranked #27 in votes received by Coaches Poll, #19 by Collegiate News, and #29 by writers poll is a definite improvement. Big week for FIU Baseball coming up for sure.

Go Panthers!
