Isanovic Named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week

Oct 25, 2021

SAN FRANCISCO -- Junior outside hitter Iman Isanovic was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week on Monday after leading Sun Devil Volleyball to a series sweep over the mountain schools over the weekend.

This is the first weekly award for Arizona State this season and the first offensive player of the week nod since 2018. For Isanovic, this is her first weekly award since being the freshman of the week back in October 2019. 

Isanovic, a native of Bosnia and Herzegovina, had a stellar weekend, leading ASU in kills for both wins at No. 18 Utah and Colorado, who received votes in the AVCA Coaches Poll. In the win over the Utes, which was the Sun Devils' first over them since 2015, she had 24 kills, her fifth time this season earning 20 or more kills in a match. She also tied her career high in blocks with six, as well as earning a new personal best in solo blocks with four. Adding to the impressive feat was that she also earned a double-double with 12 digs, her eighth of the season.

Against the Buffs, she had 18 kills to lead the Sun Devils, as well as eight digs. That win over Colorado completed the road series sweep, ASU's first since 2019, and its first ever road series sweep against the mountain schools.
