FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas freshman Colin Poche was named Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week on Monday.

Poche earned the honor after throwing 7 1/3 scoreless innings in two appearances.

The left-hander started and won his first game as a Razorback last Tuesday, tossing five scoreless innings during a 14-0 win against New Orleans last Tuesday. He did not allow a hit through 4 2/3 innings. Poche also allowed one hit in 2 1/3 innings in relief of Trey Killian against Evansville on Sunday.

Poche and No. 3 Arkansas (7-1) travel to play in the Coca-Cola Classic in Surprise, Ariz., this week. The Razorbacks open their four-game stint in the tournament against Arizona State at 5 p.m. Thursday.
