TUCSON, Ariz. -- On the eve of the Rice baseball team's appearance in the NCAA Regional in Austin, Owl sophomore Anthony Rendon was named a Second Team Louisville Slugger All-America selection by Collegiate Baseball newspaper, the publication announced Thursday (June 3) from its headquarters in Tucson, Ariz.
A year ago Rendon was named Third Team All-America selection by Collegiate Baseball, and his sophomore year has been even better. He leads Conference USA, and is among the NCAA leaders, in home runs (23), runs scored (79) and walks (62). The Houston native from nearby Lamar High School is batting .393 on the season and has driven-in 78 runs in the Owls' 59 games. Not only as he stolen 14 bases and maintained a .787 slugging percentage and .532 on-base average, Rendon currently has more home runs (23) than strikeouts (21).
Last week at the Conference USA Tournament Rendon was named the league's Player of the Year for the second straight-season. He is also a national semifinalist for both the 2010 Dick Howser Trophy as the top college player, and the Golden Spikes Award as the country's top collegiate player.
The Rice baseball team, 38-21 overall and the Conference USA regular season champions, next plays in the Austin Regional of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. The Owls meet the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns (37-20) at 1 pm at Texas' UFCU Disch-Falk Field in the first round of regional play on Friday, June 4.
