SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Junior All-American Kris Bryant of the 23rd-ranked University of San Diego baseball team has been named the Rawlings West Coast Conference Player of the Month, the conference office announced Thursday morning.

Bryant, a 6-5 third baseman from Las Vegas, Nev., helped pace the Toreros to a 14-6 record in March, as he went 30-for-73 (.411) with six doubles, one triple, 13 home runs, 30 RBI and was slugging at a 1.055 clip, while bolstering an on base percentage of .561. He also drew 24 walks. Bryant was named WCC Player of the Week twice during this month. He had several key performances, including going 2-for-2 with two home runs and four RBI against No. 10 Cal State Fullerton. He also went 3-for-3 with three home runs and six RBI, against BYU in the WCC-Opener for both teams. His final home run in this game was a walk-off. He also hit the walk-off home run against BYU to complete a sweep over the Cougars, as he went 2-for-6 with a double and home run in that game. Bryant also became the first player this season to hit a home run over Oregon State ace Matt Boyd, as he went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI. All together, Bryant had nine multi-hit games, and hit at least one home run in 10 games during this month.

Bryant currently leads the nation in home runs hit with 14, leads the nation in runs scored with 41, is second nationally in walks with 34, and second nationally in slugging percentage at .900. His 14 home runs are now just four shy of tying the 25-year old USD single-season home run record currently held by Dave Rolls (1985-88). With 37 career home runs, he is also closing in on the school career home run record of 43 currently held by Sean Baron (1985-88).

Bryant and the 23rd-ranked Toreros will return to action on Thursday, as they head up to Los Angeles for a 3 p.m. WCC game against Loyola Marymount University.
