Sophomore second baseman Hailey Decker celebrated her 20th birthday Monday by being named the Big Ten Player of the Week.
Decker went 9-for-15 (.600) with one double, three homers, nine runs scored and 10 RBIs last week. She averaged more than two hits, two runs and two RBIs per game, while posting a 1.267 slugging percentage and a .625 on-base percentage. Decker also stole a base and was perfect defensively at second base. She produced at least two hits in all four games, tied one school record and established career highs in hits, runs and RBIs.
Nebraska went 3-1 with a midweek road win at UNO and a road series victory at No. 23 Northwestern over the weekend.
Nebraska hosts Creighton Wednesday in a nationally-televised matchup on BTN. First pitch is set for 6 p.m.
