Florida's Allie Monserez wins AVCA Player of the Week honors

  Allie Monserez (22) won national honors thanks to a 57-assist performance.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Redshirt sophomore setter Allie Monserez was rewarded for strong performances this past weekend, netting AVCA Player of the Week as well as SEC Player of the Week honors.

Monserez, the national leader in assists per set (12.35), earned top honors this week with a double-double against LSU and a 57-assist outing in Florida's win over defending SEC champion Texas A&M.

The Windemere, Florida, native's 57 assists against the Aggies matched her career high — which also tied the highest total by an SEC player in a 4-set match this season. Monserez's double-double versus the Tigers, her third of the season, came by way of 32 assists and 16 digs.

Additionally, junior middle blocker Rhamat Alhassan took home SEC defensive honors after turning in one of the most impressive double-doubles by a Gator in the last 15 years to help UF take a 4-set victory at Texas A&M.

The Glenarden, Maryland, product amassed 22 kills and 10 blocks, becoming the first Gator since Benavia Jenkins to log 20-plus kills and 10-plus blocks in a match. Jenkins totaled 21 kills and 11 blocks against Arkansas back on Nov. 18, 2001.

Moreover, Alhassan is one of two SEC players in the last three seasons to record such numbers in a match. Texas A&M's Jazzmin Babers is the only other player with such a game during that span, though hers came in a non-conference match against New Mexico State.

Alhassan's performance, which also featured 27.5 points on a .528 hitting percentage, bumped her up to 11th nationally in hitting percentage (.414).
