BASEBALL
Notes
Houston Baseball was named The American preseason favorite, while junior ace Trey Cumbie, who was named a Preseason Second-Team All-American on Dec. 18, was named the Preseason Pitcher of the Year … In 2017, Houston, led by eighth-year Head Coach Todd Whitting, finished ranked among the nation's Top 25 after capturing both conference championship titles and hosting a sold-out NCAA Regional at Schroeder Park for the second time in the last three seasons … The Cougars notched their third 40-win season in the last four years and became the first Houston team to win a regular-season conference title and a conference tournament title in the same season since 2000 … Last season also marked the first year in program history that Houston had a conference Player and Pitcher of the Year in the same season as Cumbie (Pitcher) joined Jake Scheiner (Player) with those honors … Last season, Cumbie led the conference with a 2.04 ERA and a 10-2 record in 15 starts … The southpaw fanned 82 in 101.1 innings and had four complete games.
