LEXINGTON, Va. – Charleston Southern pitcher Stew Brase and second baseman Walt Quattlebaum have been named to the 2011 Big South Conference All-Tournament Team for their performance at the 2011 Royal Purple Big South Tournament Presented by Triangle Rent a Car.
Brase and Quattlebaum are the first Buccaneers to spots on the All-Tournament team in eleven seasons. Richard Gommersall, Ted Malikowski, Patrick Siemers and Matt Coenen all earned the honor in 2000 when the Bucs fell to Liberty in the championship game.
Brase earned his sixth win of the season with a 9-3 victory over Winthrop in the Bucs' first game of the tournament. The right-handed pitcher gave up just one earned run off of eight hits while pitching his third complete game of the season. Brase gave up just two extra base hits and walked one batter while striking out three.
Also an All-Conference Second Team honoree, Quattlebaum led the CSU offense throughout the playoffs. The redshirt junior went 5-for-12 with two runs and two RBI, hitting .417 throughout the tournament. He boasted a slugging percentage of .500, an on-base percentage of .417 and had five assists.
The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers won the 2011 Big South Championship with a 6-1 victory over Gardner-Webb and will represent the BSC in the NCAA Tournament.
