Hoskins was named to the second team West All-Region team, while Krueger earned first team Midwest All-Region honors.
During the regular season Hoskins led the WAC with nine home runs and a .563 slugging percentage while ranking second in runs batted in (45) and doubles (16). He hit .360 with six homers and 32 RBIs in WAC play, driving in more than one run per game in conference play.

Hoskins ranks 15th in the NCAA with 12 home runs this season and followed Andrew Ayers in 2012 and Mike Eby in 1995 as the third Hornet WAC MVP honoree. Hoskins was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the fifth round of this year's MLB draft.
Krueger hit .306 with seven home runs and 42 RBIs in earning first-team All-WAC honors. He helped the Wolverines to a second-place finish at the 2014 WAC Tournament in Mesa, Arizona.
