Nebraska's Annika Albrecht named AVCA Player of the Week

  Albrecht averaged 5.17 kills and 1.67 digs per set while hitting .400 for the week.

Nebraska senior outside hitter Annika Albrecht picked up another award on Tuesday as she was named the Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week. 

Albrecht becomes the 12th Husker all-time to receive the AVCA's weekly national award and the first since Amber Rolfzen in 2016. Albrecht was honored as the Big Ten Player of the Week for the first time in her career on Monday. 

The North Aurora, Illinois native guided the Huskers to a pair of road sweeps to begin Big Ten play last weekend. Albrecht had a career-high 19 kills with six digs and four blocks while hitting .400 in a 3-0 sweep at then-No. 2 Penn State, the Nittany Lions' first time being swept at home since 2003.

For the week, Albrecht averaged 5.17 kills and 1.67 digs per set while hitting .400.

The first MLB game ever played in this state — Royals vs. Tigers — was designed to serve as something of a lead-in for the College World Series, and a bridge between the big leagues and the college game.
