Bailey Puts on Clinic in BIG EAST Play


Nov. 18 - Autumn Bailey, a sophomore outside hitter for Marquette University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week. She dominated in all facets of the game last weekend, recording 20+ kills in both matches as the visiting team in Big East play. They first hit the road to New Jersey to take on Seton Hall, where in four sets she nailed 29 kills on .348 hitting with an ace. Defensively she was equally strong, notching 20 digs and four blocks and receiving all balls without an error. The following day they took a 100 mile bus ride to play Villanova where Bailey continued her hot play. In the sweep, she recorded another 21 kills on .333 hitting with seven digs and three blocks. The BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year became just the third player in program history to surpass the 500-kill mark in a single season. Marquette has already clinched a berth in the conference tournament, which they will host later this month.


This is the first time a Marquette student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors. The Golden Eagles are coached by Ryan Theis.
