The Iowa baseball team left Florida and the Big Ten/Big East Challenge with two wins, and two players received second team all-tournament honors on Monday.

Sophomore pitcher Jarred Hippen and senior outfielder Ryan Durant were named to the second team after their performances against West Virginia, Rutgers, and Villanova over the weekend.

Hippen earned the win in the Hawkeyes’ 6-3 victory over the Scarlet Knights on Feb. 26. The southpaw from Rockwell, Ill., hurled a career-best 82⁄3 innings in his second start of the season.

Hippen struck out eight, one short of tying his career high and the Big Ten’s game-high in the 2010 season.

Durant manned the clean-up spot with authority in three games for Iowa, going 6-for-11 with a two-run home run, a double, and six RBIs.

The native of Eldridge, Iowa, managed a .909 slugging percentage and added two sacrifice flies — the most of any player in the Big Ten this season.

Iowa will travel to Lawrence, Kan., for a four-game series with the Jayhawks starting at 3 p.m. Friday.
