Kansas University junior pitcher Shaeffer Hall has been named Big 12 Conference pitcher of the week.
Hall, a junior from Lee’s Summit, Mo., tossed the fifth complete game no hitter in KU history on Friday, blanking Air Force, 5-0. He became the first Jayhawk to earn Big 12 pitcher of the week honors since Don Czyz on Feb. 14, 2006.
Hall, a 6-foot lefty, went nine innings and allowed no runs on no hits with three walks and seven strikeouts against AFA. After walking the first batter of the game, Hall retired the next 17 Falcons he faced. His performance was also the first complete-game shutout by a Jayhawk since Kodiak Quick blanked Hawaii-Hilo in 2005.
