Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week
Nikki Scott, a senior middle blocker for then-No. 4 University of Nebraska at Kearney, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II Player of the Week. She earned the honor after leading the Lopers to three wins, propelling the squad to a 19-0 conference record for only the third time in school history. Scott began the week by drilling 16 kills for a .438 hitting percentage, adding three digs in a 3-1 defeat of then-No. 14 Wayne State (Neb.). She continued the action with her best performance, putting down 11 kills for an impressive .526 attack percentage, while contributing one dig and one block in a sweep of Chadron State. Scott ended the week by lifting the Lopers to a four-set win over Colorado School of Mines, tallying 10 kills, while also netting two digs, two blocks and one assist. For the week, Scott averaged a .408 clip with 3.36 kills and 3.90 points per set. This is the fifth time an athlete from Nebraska-Kearney has earned the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II Player of the Week award, with Erin Gudmundson taking home the last honor on Oct. 31, 2005. The Lopers are coached by Rick Squires.
