On the season, Tears is now hitting .410 (3rd in SEC) with a .516 On-Base Percentage (3rd in SEC) and a .790 Slugging Percentage (1.306 OPS) along with 10 HR, 8 doubles, 29 RBI, and 44 runs (3rd in SEC). Tears and Tennessee will battle LSU this upcoming weekend.

7. OF Jace LaViolette (Texas A&M)

It was a bit of a down week last week for LaViolette as he drops a spot (even though he continued to score a lot). On the week he was 4/16 with one HR, one double, one RBI, and 7 runs.

For the year, he now has a .297/.468/.746 slash-line (1.214 OPS) with 14 HR (T-5th in SEC), 7 doubles, 2 triples, 33 RBI, and 47 runs (2nd in SEC). The Aggies face Vanderbilt this weekend.
