March 24, 2014

WASHINGTON – For the third consecutive week, and fifth time this season, a Georgetown baseball player has been named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll as sophomore right-handed pitcher Matt Smith (Cranberry Twp, Pa./Seneca Valley) earned his first selection of the season following his performance against Towson on Friday.

Smith had his best outing of his career on Friday, going a career-high 7.2 innings while giving up just one run in a 6-2 win over Towson. He faced just one batter over the minimum through the first five innings as the Hoyas maintained a 1-0 lead. Smith finished his day striking out one while giving up just four base hits.

The sophomore is the second pitcher, and fifth Hoya to earn a selection to the Honor Roll this season. Last week, sophomore catcher Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) was named to the Honor Roll after batting .500 in six games during the Hoyas trip to Florida over spring break. The week before, senior outfielder Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) and Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) earned nods and Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) was named back on Feb. 24.

The Hoyas travel to Baltimore on Wednesday for a midweek matchup at Coppin State. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. They will then travel to Grambling State for a three game series next weekend.
