BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU first baseman Tre’ Morgan was named by the Southeastern Conference Monday as the SEC Freshman of the Week. The announcement marked the second time in three weeks that Morgan has received the honor.

In LSU’s series win at Auburn, Morgan hit .538 (7-for-13) with one triple, one homer, three RBI, four runs, one stolen base and a .571 on-base percentage. His two-out, two-run triple in the top of the eighth inning on Thursday night  extended LSU’s from 5-3 to 7-3 in an eventual 8-3 win.

Morgan is LSU’s leading hitter this season, batting .363 with 13 doubles, four triples, five homers, 33 RBI, 49 runs and 12 stolen bases.
