NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — For the third time this season, Davidson first baseman Ryan Wilson has been named Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, the league announced Monday afternoon.

Wilson was also honored on March 16 and March 21, and this week’s honor is split with George Washington’s Anthony Frechette. 

This past week, Wilson hit .500 (6-for-12) with three doubles, a home run, four RBIs, five runs and a stolen base as the Wildcats won two of three at preseason favorite VCU. He hit a two-run home run and an RBI-double in Friday’s game, then doubled and stole home Saturday. On Sunday, he went 3-for-4 with an RBI-double.

“Ryan plays the game the right way and competes at a high level every day of the year,” said Davidson coach Rucker Taylor. “He’s incredibly versatile and does a lot of things to help our team.” 

Wilson leads the A-10 with a .568 on-base percentage, which ranks third nationally, and with 32 walks (7th nationally). He’s hitting .408 with a 1.262 OPS, 10 doubles, six home runs, 28 RBIs and 13 steals (2nd in the A-10).

Wilson’s honor is the eighth of the year for the Wildcats, also including Michael Carico (Player of the Week on 3/1, 3/28), Nolan DeVos (Pitcher of the Week on 3/8, 3/16) and Blake Hely (Pitcher of the Week on March 1).
