    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa sophomore Calvin Mathews has been named the Big Ten Pitcher of the Week, it was announced Monday by the league office. The honor is the first of Mathews' career.


    The right-hander went the distance for his first career complete game, leading the Hawkeyes to a 3-2 series-opening victory at Michigan on March 28. He scattered six hits in the outing, while tying a career-high with nine strikeouts against zero walks. Mathews surrendered two runs in the first three innings before allowing two hits over the final six frames to earn the victory.

    Mathews is 3-1 with a 1.91 ERA in seven starts this season. He has allowed 13 runs (10 earned) in 47 innings and has a Big Ten-best 41 strikeouts. Over his last three starts, the Bloomfield, Iowa, native has allowed three earned runs in 25 innings, while tallying 23 strikeouts to zero walks.

    Mathews is the first Iowa pitcher to garner the accolade since Sasha Kuebel on May 21, 2012. Mathews is the third Hawkeye to earn a weekly honor this season, joining Player of the Week selections Taylor Zeutenhorst and Dan Potempa.

    Iowa (15-9, 3-3) returns to action Wednesday at Bradley before hosting Indiana for a three-game series this weekend at Duane Banks Field.
