The Big 12 was paying attention to Nolan Kingham’s busy week.
On Monday, the Big 12 named Texas junior Nolan Kingham its pitcher of the week. It was the first time that Kingham has been honored by the conference this season. He was, however, named the nation’s top pitcher by the Perfect Game/Rawlings publication after the season’s first week.
This past week, Kingham earned a win and a save as Texas went 3-1 in its game against Oklahoma State and Sam Houston State. He pitched a perfect ninth inning in a 3-2 win over the nationally-ranked Bearkats on Tuesday. Four days later, he gave up one run over eight walk-less innings against Oklahoma State.
To top things off, Kingham was ejected from a 10-5 win over Oklahoma State on Sunday after he argued with an umpire from Texas’ dugout.

Texas (15-10) will travel to Texas State on Tuesday.
