First baseman Jack O'Reilly and right-hander Luke McCollough are the Philadelphia Baseball Review D-I Players of the Week. The duo helped Villanova to a three-game sweep of Pepperdine over the weekend. 
 
O'Reilly finished the week 6-for-17 with five runs scored, five RBIs, a homer, and a stolen base. 
 
After a slow start to the season, the Episcopal Academy graduate is turning things around, raising his average to .296 on the year with three homers and eight RBIs. 
 
McCollough, a graduate transfer from Utah Valley, pieced together a solid starting performance on Sunday, tossing six scoreless frames to help the Wildcats secure a series sweep of Pepperdine. He also hurled two scoreless innings in relief earlier in the week, finishing with eight scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and one walk. He whiffed five. 
 
The Wildcats (5-8) are riding a hot streak, having won four-of-five and return to the Philadelphia area this week for a clash on Wednesday with Penn.
