MikeOltUConn PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Connecticut third baseman Mike Olt and USF righthanded pitcher Randy Fontanez are the winners of the BIG EAST’s weekly baseball honors for the week-ending April 25.

Olt was named BIG EAST Player of the Week after he led Connecticut to a 6-0 week, including a three-game sweep of Rutgers, to lift the Huskies into sole possession of first place in the BIG EAST standings and extend Connecticut’s winning streak to 21 games — the longest active streak in the nation. Olt hit .655 and slugged 1.138, going 19-for-29 with five doubles, three home runs, 11 RBI and nine runs scored. He had at least two hits in all six games and had at least one extra-base hit in five of the six. Olt hit .786 in the three games against Rutgers, capping the week by going 5-for-6 with a double and a home run in Game 3.

Fontanez was tabbed as BIG EAST Pitcher of the Week after he threw a complete-game shutout to key USF’s 5-0 win against Villanova Friday, helping the Bulls take two of three from the Wildcats. Fontanez faced just three batters over the minimum as he scattered four hits and walked one while striking out five to pick up his third win of the season. He registered his third complete game of the season and his second complete-game shutout of the year.
