OVC: Cosey, Pittsenbarger earn conference awards

RICHMOND — For the sixth time this season, Eastern Kentucky University junior guard Glenn Cosey has been named the adidas Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week.

The Flint, Mich., native had 17 points, two assists and a steal in the Colonels’ win Thursday over Tennessee Tech. He tied for a game-high 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting from the field in a victory Saturday over Jacksonville State. Cosey made 4-of-7 three pointers against the Gamecocks.

In the two games Cosey averaged 19 points, two assists and 1.5 steals. He shot 46 percent from the field, including 39 percent from three-point range.

 The Colonels will play their final home game of the regular season on Wednesday when Austin Peay visits McBrayer Arena. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Pittsenbarger OVC Pitcher of the Week

Colonels sophomore Leanna Pittsenbarger was named the adidas OVC Softball Pitcher of the Week following her performance this past weekend at the KSU Classic. Eastern Kentucky went 3-1 during its opening weekend action.

Pittsenbarger, a native of Urbana, Ohio, tossed a complete-game, three-hit shutout in her first appearance of the year, a 4-0 win over Liberty on Feb. 16. She finished the game with a career-high 12 strikeouts. Pittsenbarger did not allow a hit in the final three innings to earn the win in the 8-6 decision over Ball State on Feb. 17. In the victory over Mercer, she gave up just two hits in the final three frames to earn the save.

For the week, Pittsenbarger went 2-0 with one save and a 1.87 ERA. She threw 15 innings and struck out 21 batters to go along with just three walks.

This was Pittsenbarger’s second career OVC Pitcher of the Week award. The righty earned the honors one time as a freshman.

Eastern Kentucky (3-1) is back in action next weekend at the Frost Classic in Chattanooga, Tenn.
