Liberty senior outfielder Tim Nanry has been selected as the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Player of the Week for games played Feb. 12-18, the league office announced this afternoon.

Nanry (Rochester, N.Y.) batted .667 (6-for-9) in three games last weekend, helping the Flames post a 2-1 record at the Crab House Shootout in Charleston, S.C. He garnered his first two starts of the season on Saturday against host The Citadel and Sunday against Richmond. The outfielder responded with Liberty's first hit of the day against The Citadel in the fifth inning and scored the tying run in the Flames' 2-1 win.

Sunday against intra-state rival Richmond, Nanry belted three home runs, plated eight runs and scored four times in the Flames' 28-7 victory over the Spiders. The senior, who had the best day of his Liberty career, went 5-for-5 in the contest and was a hit by pitch to pace a 28-hit afternoon for the Flames, a new school record. Nanry finished with a 1.667 slugging percentage on the week.

Nanry and the Flames (3-3) host the Albany Great Danes in a three-game series this weekend at Worthington Stadium. Friday, the home opener, is slated for 2:30 p.m.
