Feb. 11, 2002

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech’s Kyle Bakker earns the first Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week honors of the season.

Bakker, a sophomore left handed pitcher, earns ACC Player of the Week recognition after leading the Yellow Jackets to a season opening 10-2 victory over Georgia Southern. In the win, the Omaha, Neb., native held Georgia Southern to no runs, no walks and just four singles in seven innings of action.
