Additionally, Bassett boasts a .476 batting average and has a league-leading 43 total bases.
Hazel made three outings last week and recorded two wins and a save. She opened the week with her first collegiate no-hitter against Lubbock Christian with 12 strikeouts in seven innings on Saturday. Hazel recorded five outs against Southern Nazarene on Sunday as the Trailblazers came back for a 6-5 win. Earlier in the day, she had a four-out save against Fort Lewis for her first career save.
