WICHITA - Wichita State University's Rafael Becker was named the Missouri Valley Conference Golfer-of-the-Week for the week of Sept. 13. 

Becker was the co-medalist at the Diet Pepsi Shocker Classic, leading Wichita State to the team title of its home tournament at the Wichita Country Club on Monday and Tuesday.  The senior finished 8-under (68-67-70=205) while battling through breezy conditions, especially during Tuesday's third round.  It was Becker's third career tournament victory and a marked improvement from his 26th place finish at 2011's Shocker Invitational. 

He now owns 11 top-10 finishes in 33 career tournaments.  His 36-hole total 205 was the third-best mark of his career.  The Shockers won the tournament at 18-under (277-273-284=834), 16 strokes better than second place Kansas State.

This is the eighth career MVC Golfer-of-the-Week honor for Becker, tying him for 6th all-time.  One more weekly award would tie him for second place, five behind the all-time leader, former WSU standout Dustin Garza. 

The Shockers next compete at the Colorado State Ram Master Collegiate in Fort Collins, Colo. On Monday, Sept. 17 and Tuesday, Sept. 18.
