ORLANDO, Fla. – On Monday afternoon, The American Athletic Conference announced its Player and Pitcher of the Week recipients for the week of February 21. UCF's Hunter Patteson was named as the Pitcher of the Week after his seven-inning performance on Sunday. 
Outfielder Gephry Pena was named to the AAC Honor Roll, after a 7-for-16 (.438) week for the Knights. Pena collected five RBIs and opened the midweek game at North Florida with a triple. He added two home runs and stole both bases that he attempted this week.

Hunter Patteson improved to 2-0 on the season Sunday, worked seven innings of two-hit baseball, as the Knights too the series from Sun Belt Conference runner-up Georgia Southern with a 10-1 victory. Patteson fanned a career-high 10 batters, a week removed from a nine-strikeout outing against Siena. The lefty went four no-hit innings, before allowing his first hit of the day. Patteson leads the Knights with 19 strikeouts and is one of 84 players nationally to post a 0.00 ERA.
The Knights will be back in action tomorrow, March 1, as they host Stetson on Tuesday. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. from John Euliano Park.
