Dec. 23, 2004
Stanford, Calif. - The Collegiate Volleyball Update (CVU.com) is pleased to announce that Stanford University senior Ogonna Nnamani has been selected as the CVU.com National Player of the Week for December 15 through December 19.
A 6-1 outside hitter from Normal, Ill., Nnamani led the Cardinal to two NCAA tournament victories over the weekend, including their sixth NCAA title and second in four years.
In Thursday's National Semifinal match against Washington recorded 33 kills, the most of any player at the NCAA Semifinals, 21 digs, five solo blocks and a pair of assists in scoring 38 points to lead Stanford into the National Championship match.
In Saturday's match against fourth-seeded Minnesota, Nnamani knocked down 29 kills and committed only two errors in 48 attempts to hit .563 for the match. The Olympian also chipped in four digs and a solo block in scoring 30 points in capturing her second title as a part of the Stanford squad.
Nnamani registered 145 kills during her six matches in the NCAA tournament, in which she played in every one of Stanford's 21 games, breaking the record of 139 that Sherisa Livingston of Wisconsin set in the 2000 tournament.
