Nusbaum wins AVCA Player of the Week honors

Lipscomb's Carlyle Nusbaum was announced Tuesday as the AVCA Player of the Week, just a day after winning ASUN Player of the Week honors.

  Carlyle Nusbaum (12) has been named AVCA Player of the Week.
Nusbaum, a sophomore outside hitter from Overland Park, Kan., becomes just the fourth player in conference history to win the ASUN Player of the Week award six times in a career. She is just the second player to win five of those honors in a single season. Nusbaum has also won a Defensive Player of the Week this year.

Nusbaum scored the match-high in both of Lipscomb's shutout victories last week with tallies of 18 and 24. She averaged seven kills per set against North Florida and Jacksonville, for an average of .537.

With 10 digs in each of the Bisons' wins Nusbaum recorded two double-doubles, and has reached that mark in seven of her last nine appearances.

College basketball preview: A look at the ASUN Conference

The ASUN. Home of Florida Gulf Coast AKA Dunk City. Home of the North Florida Ospreys and their dancing band members. Home of the Stetson Hatters, quite possibly the only NCAA team named after a wardrobe accessory. Beyond the nicknames that few know but many would love lies a brand of basketball that college basketball pundits would agree is quite endearing. Gritty, fast-paced, high-scoring, sounds like recipe for some pretty good college basketball, right…?
