AUBURN, Ala. Casey McElroy has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week following his 8-for-13, six RBI performance in No. 24 Auburn's series win over No. 9 Arkansas this past weekend at Plainsman Park. 

Riding a career-best 15-game hitting streak and reaching base safely in all 20 games this season, McElroy doubled, hit two home runs and scored five runs over the weekend, helping Auburn win a second consecutive series win over Arkansas and its first at Plainsman Park since the 2005 season. 

McElroy, who leads Auburn with a .422 batting average and 12 extra-base hits (eight doubles, four home runs), homered with two outs in the fifth inning on Friday to give Auburn a 5-4 lead and then homered to lead off the third on Sunday to give Auburn a 3-1 lead. In Sunday's contest, he matched his career-high with four RBIs, including driving in the first two runs in the four-run eighth that saw Auburn go from down 5-4 to up 8-5. 

The junior infielder ranks second in the SEC in hits (35) and home runs, is fourth in batting average, fifth in slugging (.663) and doubles, sixth in runs scored (20) and eighth in on-base percentage (.473) and RBIs (20).
