COLUMBIA —Missouri baseball player Jonah Schmidt has been named Big 12 Conference Player of the Week. It is Schmidt's first career Big 12 weekly award.

The senior outfielder hit .500 over the weekend to help the Tigers win two out of three games in their series at Kansas State. Schmidt hit a pair of home runs, a double and accounted for 13 total bases while scoring a team-high five runs and knocking in three.

Schmidt raised his average to .375 in Big 12 play, which ranks fourth in the league, and brought his season average to .326, 11th in the conference.

Missouri is set to host Texas Tech next weekend in its final home series of the season.
