BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU junior right-hander Aaron Nola was named Monday by Collegiate Baseball magazine as one of its National Players of the Week.

Nola, a Baton Rouge native, fired a no-hitter for seven innings Friday night versus Virginia Tech before leaving the game due to a pitch count restriction. Nola threw 87 pitches in seven shutout frames, allowing no hits with one walk and eight strikeouts.

It was the deepest an LSU pitcher had gone in a game without giving up a hit since April 15, 1995, when right-hander Brian Winders threw 8.2 hitless innings at Ole Miss.

Nola improved to 2-0 with Friday’s win over the Hokies, and he has a 0.00 ERA in 13 innings with one walk and 14 strikeouts.
