Nashville, Tenn. - Vanderbilt shortstop Vince Conde has been named SEC Player of the Week for his performance last week.

Conde led the Commodores with a .643 average during the team's 3-1 week going 9-for-14 with three runs scored, two doubles and four RBI. The junior posted three straight multi-hit games, including matching his career-best twice with three hits in two games against No. 8 LSU. The Oviedo, Fla. native was a key in the series victory over the Tigers driving in four runs and collecting seven hits.

Conde joins Bryan Reynolds, who was named SEC Freshman of the Week after Week 1, as the two Commodores to garner league honors this season. Conde is the first Dore since Tony Kemp last season to earn SEC Player of the Week Honors.

Vanderbilt returns to action Tuesday at crosstown rival Belmont. First pitch is set for 4 p.m. at Rose Park with right-hander Walker Buehler getting the ball for the Black & Gold against lefty James Buckelew for the Bruins.
