WALNUT CREEK, Calif.- Stanford outside hitter Ogonna Nnamani has been named Pac-10 Volleyball Player of the Week for Nov. 3- 9, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Nnamani, a junior from Normal, Ill. helped the Stanford Cardinal to a 3-1 victory over Bay Area rival California in the team's only contest of the week. Nnamani tallied 26 kills (6.5 kpg) while hitting at a .355 clip against the Golden Bears. She added 11 digs (2.75 dpg), a service ace and three blocks in the victory. She collected a match-high 29.5 points. The double-double was her 11th this season and the 26 kills gives her double figures in kills in all 22 of Stanford's matches this season.
The victory over the Golden Bears catapulted the Cardinal into second place in the Pac-10, behind USC. It also enabled the Cardinal to climb one spot in the AVCA/coaches poll to number seven.
