    LOS ANGELES – USC senior outfielder Timmy Robinson was named Pac-12 Player of the Week for the Week of March 21-27, the Pac-12 Conference announced today.

    Robinson (Huntington Beach, Calif./Ocean View HS) batted an impressive .462 (6-for-13) last week, driving in six runs, scoring four with three home runs, including two against then-No. 17 UC Santa Barbara on Saturday. He had at least one hit in each of the Trojans’ four games last week, with two multi-hit days.

    First on Monday against Cal State Fullerton, the senior went 1-for-3 with a home run as the Trojans defeated the Titans 3-2.

    Then on Saturday against the Gauchos, Robinson’s bat propelled the Trojans to a 9-5 victory in a must-win game to salvage the weekend series. He set a new career high with two home run in the game, first a three-run shot and then a solo shot for his team-leading fourth and fifth home runs of the year. Overall he went 2-for-3 on the day, tying his career-high five RBI.

    On the year Robinson is batting .282 with a team-leading 20 RBI and five home runs.

    This is his first-career weekly accolade and the 60th all-time for USC.

    Robinson and the Trojan will be back in action on Tuesday, hosting Loyola Marymount at 6 p.m. PT at Dedeaux Field.
