Tyler Keenan was named the SEC Co-Player of the Week on Monday after an outstanding series against Princeton, as the Rebels swept the Tigers in just 25 innings.
Of Ole Miss’ 47 runs, Keenan drove in 12 RBIs and scored five runs on six hits (three for extra-bases) in 12 at-bats. It was a strong performance, to say the least.

The junior from North Carolina has been seeing the ball like watermelon of late, and doubled his RBI total on the season to 24, which ranks him first in the SEC and fifth in the country. Oh, and he sports a nine-game hitting streak and has reached base in all 15 games this year. Casual.
However, while Keenan is producing in-game, his post-game cellies could use some work.

This is the fourth time that Keenan has received an SEC weekly honor in his career, and he doesn’t show signs of stopping.
With that being said, he is not the only Rebel to catch fire thus far this season.
Tyler Keenan was just named the SEC Co-Player of the Week for batting .438 with one home run and 12 RBI. But was he even the Ole Miss player of the week? Take a look at these gaudy numbers from a few standouts from last week. pic.twitter.com/PmPLs8vmY0— Nick Suss (@nicksuss) March 9, 2020
The stat-lines have been explosive, and the weekly honors have represented that notion. Keenan’s weekly honor marks the fourth consecutive week where a Rebel has earned a tip of the cap from the conference, joining Cael Baker in week one, Doug Nikhazy in week two, and Braden Forsyth in week four.
Ole Miss heads to Louisiana Monroe for a two-game midweek miniseries, before returning home to host LSU over the weekend. Can the boys in powder blue keep it up?
