The southpaw has started 14 games for OSU this season and is 8-1 with five complete games, three shutouts and a 1.63 ERA. Named to the Golden Spikes Award Watch List, Heaney is also a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy and a finalist for the College Baseball Hall of Fame National Pitcher of the Year.

Heaney ranks second in the NCAA with 132 strikeouts in 110.1 innings and has recorded eight or more strikeouts in 11 of his 14 appearances.

The All-Big 12 Baseball First Team is led by Baylor with seven members. Texas A&M tallied four, while Texas and Texas Tech each landed a pair of selections. Oklahoma (Max White) and Oklahoma State (Andrew Heaney) round out the 17-member team.
