Kevin Duchene honored by Big Ten


Kevin Duchene brings home the trophies

Congrats to Kevin Duchene who is putting more awards on the mantles of Illini players.  He not only garnered the Big Ten co-Pitcher of the Week award but also Freshman of the Week as well

Duchene pitched a complete game two-hit win on Friday night against Penn State.  Illinois won the game 9-0.  Duchene also struck out 11 batters in the effort.  He now leads the Illini with a 7-1 record.

Congratulations Kevin!!

Looking ahead

The Illini will need some of Kevin’s pitching prowess in a couple days against Minnesota.  Not to give any false hope to the Illini but I noticed that once-strong Minnesota team has lost four of their last five games.  Illinois will face the Golden Gophers for their last series of 2013 starting this Thursday.
