Alhassan Leads Florida to USC Classic victories 

Sep. 16 - Rhamat Alhassan, a freshman middle blocker for then-No. 10 University of Florida, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week. It was a dominating performance for the Gators and Alhassan in the USC Classic, sweeping both matches over then-No. 13 San Diego and then-No. 6 Southern California. In the victory over the Toreros, she hit .800 with 16 kills and five blocks without recording a single hitting error. That was the third time this season the Maryland native hit above .750 in a single match. Against the Trojans at Galen Center, she continued her strong weekend with 11 more kills, a career-high seven blocks and a .350 hitting percentage. It was her third double-digit kill performance of the young season. Thanks in large part to her play, the Florida Gators jumped three spots to a No. 7 ranking in the latest AVCA Coaches Poll.


This is the 12th time the program has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors, with the most recent coming from Kristy Jaeckel on October 4, 2011. The Gators are coached by Mary Wise.
